Finally, the dramatic makeover at 101 West 15th Street is almost complete. Formerly somewhat soulless housing for St. Vincent's hospital staff, Stonehenge bought up the block-long building then known as 555 Sixth Avenue in 2010. And with 25 properties under their belt, the management company has ambitious aims for their newest rental?which, thankfully, is not called The Code even after a brief flirtation with the futuristically terrible moniker?containing has 160 units, all studios and one-bedrooms. First off, Stonehenge tapped all-star Eran Chan of ODA Architecture for the modernizing facelift. Communal spaces, both indoor and outdoor, used for free events like mixology classes, yoga sessions, movie screenings, and pet fashion shows? Check. Petite balconies or terraces in 28 out of 30 apartment lines? Check. Extra touches, like a hand-delivered basket of bread from a local bakery upon move-in? Check. All of the apartments received an interior revamp, with an emphasis on white oak floors, open kitchens, walk-in closets, and washer/dryers in virtually each one. Studios start at $3,500/month; 1BRs from $4,500. With 65 of the units already leased, the first group of tenants moved in on July 1. Even as construction work finishes up on a few more units, several courtyard- and street-facing terraces, the spacious central courtyard, and the large chunk of retail space on Sixth Avenue, we got a sneak peek of the trendy project. Come along, now.
