Work on 192 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village is making steady progress. Underneath the black construction netting and scaffolding, the mixed-use building has already topped-out and the exterior brick and glass curtain wall can be seen from across the street. The building is being designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and replaces an old one-story commercial structure. It is being developed by The Jackson Group and will contain four full-floor residences.
11-19 Jane Street is an upcoming mixed-use residential and commercial project tightly nestled among the narrow streets of the West Village. The new 31,000 square foot structure will eventually rise six stories from a large rectangular plot of land that once held a two-story parking garage. It is being designed by London-based design firm David Chipperfield Architects, and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minksoff Equities. A total of seven residential units will be housed inside the building, averaging 2,382 square feet each.
Following the sale of a historic Manhattan townhouse at 29 Downing Street, the new owners have commissioned a restoration of the structure’s facade and the installation of a new entryway to the ground floor storefront.

Marvel Architects will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission to present alterations to the Village Community School at 272 West 10th Street. The property was originally constructed in 1886 but has undergone a series of alterations dating back to 1945 and 2003.
Expect an additional 8,500 Google employees in Manhattan if the giant tech company scores a deal for St. John’s Terminal, at 550 Washington Street. If you’ve lost count, it adds up to a projected 19K Googlers working in the city. That includes the 7,000 headcount (as of early 2018) in their current office space at 111 8th Avenue near Chelsea Market, and the 3,500-staff member expansion currently in the works as a result of Google’s $2.4 billion purchase of 300,000 square feet at Chelsea Market and another 250,000 square feet at Pier 57.
