NEW YORK | 100 Varick St. | 20 fl | Prep





Think Trump Soho has a hold on the Holland Tunnel hotel scene? Not if the sun has a say in the matter! The empty development lot at 100 Varick Street, hidden by a row of trees between Broome and Watts Streets in the West Soho region we love to call Hudson Square, is primed for its transformation into a new solar-powered hotel. The site was once touted as a 10-story condo project, but has been sitting forlorn since late 2007 when a Federal-era house sitting at 66 Watts Street since 1830 was annihilated in the name of progress. More recently the lot had an "Available Immediately" sign but there were no takers and only the rubble remained. Now it looks like the sun is finally ready to rise on Varick.

What's in store for the Holland Tunnel overlook. >>
Developer Charles Fridman of Shalimar Management and Morali Architects (formerly MStudio) have the permits in order, both for the new building and excavation for foundation work. The plan announced last year called for 26 stories, but records shows it's been cut back to 20 floors with a pool at the second and 202 rooms rising above.

When complete this solar stack of suites will join a slew of hotels that have gone up in this area over the past few years, including the aforementioned Trump Soho, the soon-to-open James New York on Grand Street and a couple of Poons erected to the north and the east. And how can we forget the new Gene Kaufman specials, one on Charlton and the other on Canal? No really, tell us how we can forget them. There's also the stalled Viceroy a few blocks north, which is looking like it's going to be the latest to arrive to the tourist party down in Hudson Square.

Sadly, this 200+ year old house was razed for this project.

This thing is just awful. I like what was proposed for the site a few years back.

The house that was demolished doesn't look 200 years old

Michael Shvo moving ahead with Soho residential tower
High-flier files demolition plans to make room for 290-foot tall building at 100 Varick St.


Quote:
A partnership involving brokers-turned-developers Michael Shvo and Erez Itzhaki filed demolition plans at the Soho development site that could become a new residential tower of up to 280,000 square feet, according to property records filed with the city Thursday.

Shvo, Itzhaki and their equity partners, Halpern Real Estate Ventures, Bizzi & Partners and Aronov Development bought a 20,000-square-foot assemblage site at 100 Varick Street for $130 million in January. The site is located on the western end of the blockfront bounded by Watt, Broome and Varick streets. The joint venture filed plans with the city’s Department of Buildings yesterday to demolish three, three-story buildings that currently occupy 60, 62 and 64 Watts Street.

Last June, the first demolition permits were filed for existing structures at 60-64 Watts Street, part of an assemblage that extends to 100 Varick Street. The latter location will apparently be the official address of the ‘Soho Tower,’ as the site is dubbed on its website. And now, YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which is being developed by Michael Shvo and Itzhaki Acquisitions.
The building’s architect has not yet been revealed, but the site can support a new structure measuring 280,000 square feet, which is enough for something visually substantial. Current plans appear to meet expectations for a rather tall high-rise, though the neighborhood was rezoned in 2013, with maximum height limits of 290 feet instituted.

That would make 100 Varick Street shorter than the nearby Trump SoHo, which currently dominates the neighborhood skyline, even though it only stands 498 feet tall.

Revealed: New Renderings of Renzo Piano’s SoHo Tower at 555 Broome Street
By Ondel Hylton

http://www.6sqft.com/revealed-new-renderings-of-renzo-pianos-soho-tower-at-555-broome-street/

Quote:
Here’s a closer look at Renzo Piano’s much-anticipated condominium tower planned for a full block-front in West SoHo, between Broome and Watts streets. Dubbed The SoHo Tower, the 25-story building is being developed by way of a partnership between SHVO, Halpern Real Estate Ventures, Itzhaki Acquisition and Bizzi & Partners Development. The team picked up much of the development site in 2014 for $130 million, and yesterday, the Commercial Observer reported they’ve secured the final portion of the project site at 555 Broome Street for $9 million.

The first render was horrible, but I think it can be good if the cladding is good.

I agree. That 1st model is not really a render but more a scetch up. I'm confident this will be a very nice building.
The top is still very modest though.
