Review of 160 Leroy Street by Carter Horsley

This very attractive 12-story, 49-unit apartment building at 160 Leroy Street, across from Pier 40 in the West Village, was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the designs of the Olympic “Bird’s Nest” Stadium in Beijing, 40 Bond Street and 56 Leonard Street. The development team includes Ian Schrager, the builder of 40 Bond Street and co-founder of Studio 54, the Vector Group that is headed by Howard Lorber, chairman of Douglas Elliman, and the Witkoff Group that is headed by Steve Wykoff. 

All residences feature floor-to-ceiling windows, soaring ceilings, open floor plans, chef's kitchens, and prewiring for smart home technology. Building amenities include doorman, concierge, fitness center, pool and spa, lounge, garden, courtyard, bike room, and on-site parking.

Bottom Line

This luxury, mid-rise apartment building on West Street will be one of the most curvaceous in the city and the first in many years to have apartment window awnings.

Description

The building has large, gentle curves and its windows are considerably inset and have awnings.

The end bays have inset balconies.

The mechanical spaces on the roof will be setback and curved similarly to the rest of the building.

The building has sidewalk landscaping.

History

According to a June 14, 2013 article by Adam Pincus at therealdeal.com, “developer Peter Moore brought the parcel near the market’s peak for $34 million, but by 2011 had lost it to lender Area.

In 2015, an article in The New York Post by Lois Weiss said that the developers had expanded the site in include properties housing the Mystique Gentlemen’s Club and The Westway dance club.  The site now includes the full block bounded by West, Leroy and Clarkson streets.
