401 West Street (Fitzrovia) 401 West Street (Fitzrovia)
Perhaps there is no finer Manhattan area to weather a global storm than the tranquil environs of the West Village. Its sparkling waterfront, the icing on the neighborhood's cake, is buffered by Hudson River Park whose serenity is only slightly diminished by the West Side Highway. While the steady hum of motorists is a fair trade-off for routinely crimson sunsets, the speedway, now commonly minted as West Street, had its speed limit reduced in recent months making the waterfront just a bit more enjoyable. Across from the park's Christopher Street Pier, a ground-up rental development with a scattering of apartments has fully risen at 401 West Street. While the venture spearheaded through a partnership between Wainbridge Capital and Fitzrovia will introduce just ten apartments, its few residents will be pampered by a full suite of hospitalities that include a spa, private restaurant, and rooftop kitchen.

Just as this crisis will display, out of disaster comes opportunity. Prior to construction, 401 West's site hosted a pair of three-story townhouses that were structurally damaged from Superstorm Sandy's storm surge. The incoming seven-story building, designed by Dutch architect Thomas Juul-Hansen with Hill West will implement flood mitigation strategies hidden behind an understated facade of masonry, metal and glass. A recent visit to the site shows its concrete frame has fully ascended, just eclipsing its modestly-scaled neighbors on either side while saving most views from the taller 150 Charles Street condominium behind.
Its outward appearance is not unlike Juul-Hansen’s own High Line-straddling condos at 505 West 19th Street. Similarly, expansive picture windows are recessed into black metal frames and offset with textured vertical lines and a top-floor outdoor terrace is provided through a partial setback.

Residents will enter through a canopied entrance into a sedate lobby. A composition of neutral tones, rich stones, warm woods, and textured surfaces characterize the interiors. According to the floor schedule filed in conjunction with plans, there will be no more than two units per floor with the fifth, sixth, and seventh levels all being floor-through homes. Many of the amenity spaces will be tucked into the cellar level. Resident perks will include a gym, spa, private restaurant, meeting rooms, relaxation lounge, rooftop kitchen, and common outdoor area to enjoy those aforementioned sunset views.

The building will likely finish towards the tail-end of 2021, and given the less-than-optimal state of the Manhattan luxury market, its developers are likely to be in no rush. Even so, the project rises in a stable and very desirable area of downtown where Google and ABC-Disney are expanding into new offices nearby. The median rent for available apartments in the West Village has fallen to a more in-reach figure of $3,353/month thanks to a slew of smaller units coming online in recent months. One-bedrooms pencil out to a median of $3,391/mo., two-bedrooms for $4,295/mo, and three-bedrooms $5,163/mo.

Directly behind at 150 Charles Street, a three-bedroom closed for $9.5 million. Three condos are up for grabs in the 91-unit COOKFOX-designed project, priced from $6.9 to $14.8 million. Six condo-rentals are also available leasing from $5,750/month for a one-bedroom. Next door to 401 West is a 5-bedroom, 7,180-square-foot townhouse that was once owned by Bob and Cortney Novogratz of Bravo’s 9 BY DESIGN. The couple embarked on a no-expense-spared conversion of the former S&M club, incorporating a basketball court and screening room alongside the living spaces. Just around the corner, work is moving forward on the conversion of the landmarked Keller Hotel into luxury condominiums.
