This thread is for the Soho West neighborhood redevelopment along the backside of Newport and Hamilton Park... I felt the main infill thread was getting a little to cluttered...

Good idea starting a thread for this area - there's going to be quite a bit of construction here over the next few years.

From my previous trip to this area - 4/17

Soho West (on the map Nexis posted, yellow area where it says "Soho Building") - first building topped out, second building starting


Cast Iron Lofts 2 - maybe complete


286-298 Coles St - demolishing buildings on site




Van Leer Place South - soil testing


Van Leer Place - nothing yet - but all (286-298 Coles, Van Leer Place + South) the same company (Hoboken Brownstone Company)


Decent overview from Hoboken Ave - 286-298 Coles will rise where the Empire State Building is, and closer to the camera. Van Leer Place will be over to the left, out of sight.

Really wish I knew how to shrink those

4/30

Soho West


















Cast Iron Lofts 2




286-298 Coles










More general overview of Soho West




From across the highway


Hoboken Brownstone, on site


Van Leer Place - soil testing rigs gone


Other sites:

Between 14th and 15th - marked as "commercial strip district" on the map


Statco Warehouse - I assume someday this will be converted into residential, or destroyed and replaced


Lackawanna Warehouse


Nearby site between 14th and 15th - hotel planned on this site, but no movement for a while




Corner of 14th and Grove - old bar, recently approved for a gas station (hooray?)

11/27 - Soho House envelope nearly complete. Some work left on the base. The central podium still looks like it has a few floors to rise.









286-298 Coles - site is cleared and quiet now




Van Leer Place - the South site, closer to 286-298 Coles, may have some movement. It's hard to tell exactly what's happening, but the parking lot is closed and looks to be cleared out (to be fair, I don't remember if it was just gravel to begin with). There's some material, although no vehicles to be seen. Could be a false alarm, but it's definitely more movement than the other 2 sites (Coles and the other Van Leer) owned by the same company






I guess this counts as the Soho West area - 598 Grove St, formerly a bar, was demolished and as far as I know is being replaced by a gas station (boo). It's right up next to the tunnel exit so understandable I guess




The site of the hotel next to it is still unchanged

Can't wait to see that whole stretch filled in with the Vinoly building. They did a really good job of maintaining the heavy industrial feel in this funky neighborhood.

I agree, it does look industrial - although I think part of that is because they haven't repaired the roads and sidewalks which definitely adds to the gritty feel.
