The Landmarks-approved condo project rising at 130 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village has a teaser site, a new address, and a new rendering. Now, the seven-story development between West 9th and 10th Streets will be known as 175 West 10th Street.
The latest image offers a close-up view of the new building, which has a traditional red-brick facade broken up with large, irregularly spaced sets of windows. An 85-foot-wide retail space will fill the ground floor, topped by four stories of floor-through condos, and then a penthouse duplex for the sixth and seventh floors. Each apartment will measure about 2,500 square feet.
The designers, BKSK Architects, shepherded the building through three different meetings with the Landmarks Preservation Commission before the commissioners finally approved it in April 2014.
“I cannot imagine a better building for this site,” commissioner Michael Devonshire told the architects at the time. “As a New Yorker, I thank you for this building,” he added.
