100 Barrow Street: Review and Ratings

between Greenwich Street & Hudson Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 100 Barrow Street by Carter Horsley

This attractive, 12-story apartment building at 100 Barrow Street replaces a parking lot on the southeast corner of the full block bounded by Barrow, Greenwich, Christopher and Hudson Streets owned by St. Luke’s-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church in the West Village.

It was due for completion in 2017 by Toll Brothers.

Barry Rice is the architect of the residential building and Andrew Bartle Architects replaced Mr. Rice as the architect of the school expansion.  Mr. Rice originally planned a 15-story residential building with 49 units but the Landmarks Preservation Commission wanted it lowered.

It will have 29 co-operative apartments, including 7 “affordable” units and four townhouse rental units.

Interiors are by Bernheimer Architecture.

Proceeds from the development will help fund the church’s own construction that will include an expansion of its private school from 230 to 320 seats and the construction of a new mission where L.G.B.T.Q. homeless youth can receive meals and shelter and as a drop-in shelter where people can get a change of clothes and take showers.  

Bottom Line

Nestled in the southeast corner of the full-block bucolic compound of St. Luke-in-the-Fields Church in the West Village is this 12-story building with large apartments with a masonry base and a brass top overlooking a large garden.


The building’s corner at Barrow and Greenwich streets is rounded, which complements the corner to the west of the much larger Archives Building.

The top of the residential building is setback above the sixth floor and is clad in brass but its east façade, which faces gardens, has a center brick façade that runs up to one floor short of the top floor.  The brass part of the tower is quite attractive but relates poorly to the rest of the development.

The top floor is surrounded by a bronze pergola structure and a lacey bronze railing.

The school expansion will be mostly clad in yellow and orange panels on the third story in sharp contrast with the traditional red-brick façades of the rest of the complex and of the much larger Archives residential building across the street.


The building will have a children’s playroom, a residents’ lounge, a fitness center, a bicycle room, a vaulted wine cellar and tasting room, and a pet spa.


The penthouse is a three-bedroom unit with 2,963 square feet of interior space and 2,191 square feet of external space with a very long entry foyer that leads to a 43-foot-long living/dining room and an open kitchen with an island.

Apartment 7A is a four-bedroom unit with 3,813 square feet of internal space and 2,541 square feet of external space with a long entry foyer that leads past a 19-foot-wide library to a 17-foot-wide living room to a 16-foot-long dining room and a 15-foot-kitchen.

Apartment 10B is a three-bedroom unit with 2,345 square feet of interior space and an entry foyer that leads past its open kitchen with an island and breakfast area to a 24-foot-long living/dining room.

Apartment 10A is a two-bedroom unit with 1,779 square feet of interior space with a long entry foyer that leads to a 25-foot-long living/dining room and a 17-foot-wide open kitchen.

Apartment 6D is a two-bedroom unit with 1,615 feet of interior space and 102 square feet of terrace with an entry into its 20-foot-wide living room next to its 22-foot-wide dining room adjacent to the 14-foot-wide open kitchen.
