Seventh Avenue South, the half-mile thoroughfare that callously slashed through Greenwich Village in the early twentieth century, is experiencing a mini condo boom yielding a crop of modest-scaled development from irregular-shaped parcels. Joining 175 West 10th Street, 192 Seventh Avenue South, and One Seventh, come nine new condo residences being constructed above 125 Seventh Avenue South — the building best known for tenants Gourmet Garage and a New York Sports Club location.
Originally laid out in the Commissioners’ Plan of 1811, Seventh Avenue initially terminated at 11th Street and Greenwich Ave., but in 1914 the artery was extended eleven blocks south to connect to Varick Street. The 6-lane cut diagonally severed a half-dozen Greenwich Village blocks, resulting in a hodgepodge of triangular-shaped lots and a host of visible sidewalls fronting the avenue.

One of the largest buildings to rise along the stretch is 125 Seventh Avenue South, a three-floor commercial building built in the 90s. Located at the corner of West 10th Street, squarely within the Greenwich Village Historic District, the beige-brick and glass affair is owned by Danny Bensusan who also founded the Blue Note Jazz Club nearby. In 2009, the owners filed an application to enlarge the building with four new floors, however, the Landmarks Preservation Commission asked the applicant to return with a shorter, more contextual approach. According to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP), a final plan was approved in June 2010 envisioning a 2.5-story addition and a re-clad of the existing third-floor façade to brick.

The Chelsea-based firm of ROART are the designers and published a set of renderings showing the residences to be. Floor plans show homes will span one- to three-bedrooms and the penthouse unit will have an impressive terrace spanning the full length of the building. Images show unique open layouts with beamed ceilings and multi-pane windows overlooking the avenue.

Condos in Greenwich Village are among the most expensive in the city with our listing showing one-beds ask a median of $1,672,500 ($1,845 / ft²) and two-beds for $3,975,000 ($2,434 / ft²). Across the avenue in Greystone's newly-built condo 175 West 10th Street, the sole remaining unit is a 2,700-SF three-bedroom asking $6.2 million or $2,295 / ft².

ROART notes that the triangular site proved "challenging," and to maximize floor space, a series of folding walls and skylights were designed to create flexible well-lit interior spaces. A recent pass at the site shows new steel rising above the building and the windows of the formerly glass-enclosed top floor have been removed. ROART says unique challenges involved in doubling the structure’s height include reinforcing and enlarging many of the existing footings and columns. During this process, the entire building was temporarily elevated to release the pressure of the existing footings, says the firm.
