Work on 111 Varick Street’s reinforced concrete structure is making swift progress in Hudson Square, recently surpassing the first of several setbacks. Located at the northern corner of Varick Street and Broome Street, the future 27-story residential tower received a design update late last year, which can be seen in the featured image above. The rental project is being designed by S9 Architecture and developed by Madigan Development. It will contain 100 affordable and market-rate units, as well as ground-floor retail space. CM & Associates is in charge of construction.
YIMBY went on a hard hat tour of 100 Vandam Street, where a 131-year-old coal power plant is being converted to a new residential structure that will rise above the existing load-bearing masonry podium. The site is located in the booming Hudson Square neighborhood at the corner of Vandam Street and Greenwich Street. The construction project, which is being designed by COOKFOX and developed by Jeff Greene, will bring the total height of the new 25-story building to 330 feet.
YIMBY recently interviewed David Von Spreckelsen, President of Toll Brothers City Living, and we discussed the range of the firm’s current projects, from the OMA-designed 121 East 22nd Street, down to their newest building at 77 Charlton Street.
Just one year after work began on the new Jackie Robinson Museum, Gensler has returned to the Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to install new signage and lighting along exterior portions of the building. Located within One Hudson Square at 75 Varick Street, the institution will honor the life and legacy of the Brooklyn Dodgers legend.
After breaking ground back in July of 2018 and rising 30 floors in only six months, Greenwich West has officially topped-out over Hudson Square, in Lower Manhattan. Located at 110 Charlton Street, the new residential tower will have 170 residences, which already launched sales this past fall. The project is one of the tallest buildings in the area, and will have views of the Hudson River, Lower Manhattan, and the Midtown skyline. Strategic Capital, Cape Advisors, and Forum Absolute Capital Partners are the developers, while Loci Anima and Adamson Associates are the designers.
