Located in the West Village, and bound by West 10th Street, Washington Street, and Greenwich Street, a new proposed expansion for the Village Community School is currently being reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Approval would potentially bring a four-story addition, designed by Marvel Architects, to the eastern side of the property, at the corner of West 10th Street and Greenwich Street. The corner is currently the site of the school playground, originally built in 1945. The school and project site are located among two historic districts in Greenwich Village, sitting on the southwest corner of the established areas.
The sun is shining brightly on the brand new façade of 111 Leroy Street. Major progress has been made since YIMBY last looked, as the townhouse and condo complex finally have their skin. The project is bringing nine condos and five modern townhouses to the area. This will further expand the West Village’s classic low-rise and high-end housing closer to the water. Workshop/APD Architect is responsible for the design.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use development at 38 West 8th Street, one block away from Washington Square Park. The site is off the beaten path for Greenwich Village, and the extant structure is not of noteworthy or particular beauty. Despite this, the odds are high this project will attract undeserved criticism from local rent-gouging homeowners fearful of any increase in neighborhood housing supply. Joseph Straus of the Straus Group is listed as responsible for the development.
The redevelopment of the southwest corner of the West Village by the Hudson River is often overlooked, but that part of the neighborhood is about to get a healthy dose of modernization. One project now under construction is 111 Leroy Street, which will create nine apartments and five townhouses. Work has progressed significantly since our last look, and façade installation appears imminent. Property Markets Group is responsible for the development.
Today, YIMBY has the first close-up of 90 Morton Street’s ongoing transformation, in the West Village. The building is five blocks away from the Houston Street Subway Station, and six blocks from the West 4th Street Subway Station, putting it near most every subway line, or more exactly, the A, B, C, D, E, F, M, and 1 trains. Brack Capital Real Estate is behind the condominium conversion and expansion of the original pre-war structure, and Reuveni Real Estate will be handling sales, according to a new teaser website.
