Late last year 6sqft posted a gallery of renderings visualizing a new high-rise for Madigan Development and Robal Parking Corporation’s development site at 111 Varick Street in Hudson Square. Now, on S9 Architecture’s recently revamped website, we have a revised look at a different and enlarged design for the site. The published set of images shows a slightly taller tower of similar massing clad in a skin of rippling panels where each band of floors resembles a strip of paper repeatedly folded onto itself and thereafter wrapped around the building envelope.
As previously reported, permits filed and approved last year called for a 15-story, 70,000-square-foot residential building whose ground level would contain a retail space, a second-floor garage for nine cars, residential amenity spaces on the third and fourth levels, and 49 apartments above. S9’s project page now states the tower will have 125,000-square-feet of space and shows a building of roughly 25 stories. To add to the confusion, Madigan’s website tells us they are building an approximately 100-unit, 30-story luxury rental building whose units “will have stunning views forever, 10-foot-high ceilings and condo finishes and appliances.” The building will also seek LEED Silver accreditation.

The project is replacing a parking garage that has been long-covered in advertisements aiming to distract Jersey-bound Holland Tunnel commuters. Directly west of Madigan’s site, a permit for an 18-story residential project has been filed at 570 Broome Street. That tower replaces the Church of Our Lady of Vilnius which was founded by Lithuanian immigrants in 1905.
