The brick facade of 540 Hudson Street nears completion in Greenwich Village, Manhattan
Facade work nearing completion 540 Hudson Streeta seven-storey residential building in Greenwich Village. Conceived by BKSK Architects and developed by William Gottlieb Real Estate, the 63-foot-tall structure will produce 26 units spread over 48,535 square feet and 6,000 square feet of ground floor and basement retail space. Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Hudson and Charles streets.
Recent photos show the progress since our latest update in November 2021, when the reinforced concrete superstructure had risen halfway. Since then, extensive work has taken place, with the corrugated red brick facade largely complete behind scaffolding and black netting. The building features a window grille with subtly projecting frames, and the parapet is capped with a corbelled cornice. The ground floor is completely hidden behind scaffolding, but will feature floor-to-ceiling glass for the retail facade.
The equipment will be housed on the second floor and will connect to an outdoor terrace. One-bedroom apartments will be 670 square feet, two-bedroom apartments will average 1,200 square feet, and the three-bedroom penthouse is expected to span 1,820 square feet on the top floor. Near the site is the 1 train at the Christopher Street station along Seventh Avenue and at the Christopher Street PATH station.
540 Hudson Street should be completed next spring.
