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.
