Building, or building-to-be, we can't put too much past you, folks. Yesterday's BuildingSpotter was indeed a construction shot of 744 Greenwich Street in the West Village between Perry and West 11th. That's a rendering above; estimated completion: January '07. Commenters were down with the way the new development will make nice with its neighbors: "Unlike the Richard Meier monstrosities, [it] actually looks as if it will be an attractive building which will enhance, not detract from, the neighborhood." And there was even a guest appearance by an Elliman broker (or otherwise someone who's awfully familiar with his listings), who says only one of the five units hasn't been spoken for yet: "the 4,600sf townhouse triplex ... with a 1,400sf private garden." Asking price: $5.95 million. Oh, and there's this: "Unlike many other new buildings, there are absolutely no gimmicks: just great, well thought-out, beautifully finished homes in a prime location." Wait, no gimmicks? How'd this make it onto Curbed?
