NEW YORK | 100 University Place | 94m | 309ft | 23 fl | Pro

A high-profile location accompanies this new tower being proposed for Greenwich Village:


Macklowe Files for 23-Story Tower at 100 University Place

The first permits are up for a development that will replace a parking garage at 100 University Place, in Greenwich Village, on the corner of East 12th Street; the structure formerly housed Bowlmor Lanes, but EV Grieve reported it closed earlier this year, in preparation for demolition.

Macklowe is developing the project, and SLCE is listed as the architect of record. The design architect could be different, as the location is very prime, and definitely starchitect-worthy; three other projects are currently under construction on the same block, at 12 East 13th Street, 17 East 12th Street, and on its western side, at 61 Fifth Avenue.


100 University Place’s design has not been revealed, but the 23-story tower will stand 309 feet tall, making an impact on the relatively short neighborhood skyline. While no completion date has been announced, construction would appear imminent, given demolition’s progression on the existing structure.

Hopefully the design for this tower will dazzle...
We are floating in space...

Construction update: Excavation underway for Annabelle Selldorf’s Bowlmor Lanes-replacing condos

Construction update: Excavation underway for Annabelle Selldorf’s Bowlmor Lanes-replacing condos
Oct 12, 2016

William Macklowe Company’s 22-story 21 East 12th Street (21E12) is poised to become the tallest ground-up condominium building in Greenwich Village upon completion in 2018. The development at the southwest corner of University Place and East 12th Street replaces the Bowlmor Lanes garage building, which, due to its height and incongruent massing, ruffled the feathers of watchful neighbors and community organizations. Nevertheless, the squat, five-story structure has been razed, and site excavation is well underway for New York’s maiden of modernism, Annabelle Selldorf‘s, square, cast-stone tower.

It looks like public housing. Probably not Selldorf's fault considering it's Macklowe.
We are seeking to follow the type of architecture which is good in the sense that it does not of necessity follow the whims of the moment but seeks an artistry that ought to be good, as far as we can tell, for all time to come. -FDR

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us. -Winston Churchill
