Last month it was revealed that Renzo Piano would be following up his new Whitney Museum with a 290-foot residential tower at 555 Broome Steet (previously pinned as 100 Varick Street) in Hudson Square right on the border of Soho. While at the time details on the project were scarce with just one rendering making the rounds, NY Yimby has a new image of the starchitect-designed building which reveal a far softer and curvier glass form than previously depicted.
The initial rendering released in May 2015
The project being developed by Bizzi & Partners, Itzhaki Acquisitions, and Michael Shvo is one of many residential structures rising in the up-and-coming corridor that many have dubbed “West Soho.” DOB filings submitted two weeks ago show that the building will reach 25 stories and host 242,350 square feet of residential space split across 115 apartments, with eight to 10 units on floors three through 10, four duplexes with private terraces on floors 11 and 12, and two to four apartments per floor the rest of the way up.
Curbed adds that the building will of course be geared toward the spendy with perks like fitness facilities, extra storage, indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, a swimming pool, a porte cochere and robot parking all packed into the offer.
A completion date has yet to be announced.
