It and 176 Perry Street were completed in 2002 and were developed by Richard Born, Ira Drukier and Charles Blaichman.
The third tower, 165 Charles Street, just to the south of the first two, was completed in 2005 and developed by Izak Senbahar and Simon Elias.
176 Perry Street is wider than 173 Perry Street and the two very similar towers set a new design standard for mid-rise residential buildings in Manhattan.
Mr. Meier was one of the "New York Five" architects who came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970's and were influenced by the clean and bright lines of Le Corbusier. (The other four were Michael Grave, Peter Eisenman, the late Charles Gwathmey, and the late John Hedjuk.)
