The project, which has been known as 270 Greenwich Street, will include 228 condominium apartments and 132 rental apartments and a large Whole Foods store. About 180 of the condominium units will be in a 32-story tower at the corner of West and Warren Streets, just to the south of another new condo tower, being developed by a different developer, at 200 Chambers Street. The rest of the condos will be in adjacent mid-rise structure on Warren Street and they will have loggias screened by two-story-high piers.

The facade of the condo tower will have a checkerboard fenestration pattern and will be faced with a sand-colored, textured granite from India.

Half of the rental units, which will have their own entrance in low-rise buildings on Greenwich and Murray Streets, will be market-rate, 30 percent for middle-income and 20 percent for low-income.

The developer is contributing $7.5 million for the maintenance of the Washington Market Park and another $3 million for a community center on an adjacent block.
