Construction has topped out and façade installation is underway on the five-story, 13-unit residential project under development at 160 West Street, located on the corner of Huron Street in Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building, dubbed the Gibraltar, measures 16,198 square feet in its entirety. Its residential units, condominiums, should average 1,241 square feet apiece, ranging from one- to two-bedrooms. Amenities include an eight-car parking garage and bike storage, and some of the condos include private terraces. Since the site is subject to flooding, the ground floor won’t contain any apartments and the building’s mechanical equipment will be elevated. Saddle Rock Equities is the developer and Eisner Design is behind the architecture. Completion is expected later this year.
Steven Ferguson, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 131 Devoe Street, in northern Williamsburg, located around the block from the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The structure will encompass 20,008 square feet, and its residential units should average 996 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are probably in the works. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include a fitness center, a bike storage room, a parking garage on the ground floor, and a roof terrace. Midtown East-based Eisner Design is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide assemblage – spanning 131-133 Devoe Street – is currently occupied by two two-story houses.
Greenpoint’s current construction boom will soon yield a forest of new towers along the waterfront, but the neighborhood’s smaller infill development has also been significant. One such project in the latter category is 160 West Street, aka The Gibraltar, which has progressed quickly through the development pipeline, with permits first filed back in September of 2014. Early renderings were revealed by YIMBY in April, followed by a better look in June, and now we have interior images for the building.
Back in April, YIMBY posted the first rendering for 160 West Street, a six-story residential development in the works near the Greenpoint waterfront. Now we have an updated look at the project, sent along by its broker, Ryan Serhant. The building, now dubbed The Gibraltar, is being developed by Saddle Rock Equities, and the architect is Joe Eisner, of Eisner Design.
YIMBY has the first look at a boxy six-story condo development in the works for a big vacant lot at 160 West Street, near the waterfront in Greenpoint. Permits filed in September promise 13 apartments spread across 16,198 square feet of residential space, but the developer, Saddle Rock Equities, claims the project will have 14 units split between 20,000 square feet.
