What a beautiful building! If this were in Atlanta or Charlotte, people would be jizzing over it. Here, it’s a tiny drop in a huge ocean.
This building is fantastic and totally under the radar. Should be a great addition to this neighborhood.
Isn’t Piano’s Broome St project in this immediate vicinity? This will be stunning!
525 Broome Street is across the street on Varick.
Hopefully, that crappy parking lot across the street on the east side of Varick will be developed soon.
Great news, Way
raise the roof! raise the roof!
Madigan filed new plans with the Department of Buildings for its 111 Varick Street condo, increasing the future tower’s height to 337 feet. The project would hold 101 residential apartments, including a duplex penthouse on the 27th story. Madigan filed for the new permit despite getting its previous plan approved for construction just this May.
At the time, both Madigan and Agime were planing roughly 290-foot towers, but both companies claimed the other is working to sabotage their future tower’s views.
Madigan maintains that under normal zoning rules Agime should only be allowed to build up to 185 feet, and that a special designation from the DOB allowing Agime to go up to 290 feet is illegitimate.
This is going to be a beautiful tower.
agreed! It’s a shame Hudson Square has such restrictive height limits. Towers like these deserve to stand out. At least this one seems to be breaching 300 ft, though I suspect that it might be lowered to the 290 ft limit after rival developers and politicians become noisier. As of now this project is somewhat lowkey. We’ll see.
Drove by today but didnt get a pic. It is currently rising above ground with rebar and some concrete pillars. They are about to errect the forms for the first floor.
