Last week, we toured 90 Morton Street, a 12-story building in the West Village that is being converted from warehouse to condominiums. Construction is moving along quickly, with the major structural additions now complete. Brack Capital Real Estate is responsible for the development, having purchased the site in 2014 for $105 million. YIMBY sat down with the project’s team to discuss the evolution of the southwest West Village, the challenges involved in converting and expanding a historic warehouse, and expectations for the neighborhood’s future.
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
Plans for the replacement at 119-121 2nd Avenue have been submitted to the Landmark Preservation Commission, allowing the public a first look at what may be coming to an East Village corner. The three lots previously on the site were cleared from the devastating 2015 East Village gas explosion, which injured 19 and caused two deaths. The two lots were purchased for $9.15 million in 2017, and permits were filed in late February 2018 for the replacement. Nexus Development will be responsible for the rebuild, first revealed by EV Grieve.
Designed in a collaboration between NAVA and DXA Studios, updated renderings of 14 White Street have been released following previous unanimous approval from New York City’s Landmark Preservation Commission. The seven-story building will comprise 29,000 square feet containing a mix of residential and retail accommodations.
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.
