Jeff Greene has finally filed permits to expand a six- and five-story building in Hudson Square into a 24-story apartment building, The Real Deal reports. The Florida-based billionaire snagged the properties in 2013 with plans to build out 75 condos; later that year he soured on the idea and put the site at 98-100 Vandam Street on the market for $150 million. There were, apparently, no bites sufficient for the Palm Beach real estate tycoon. Greene now plans on converting the existing commercial buildings on the corner of Vandam and Greenwich streets and enlarging them with an 18-story topper designed by COOKFOX. According to the filings, the building will have 62 apartments averaging a large 2,450 square feet.
YIMBY gleaned renderings of what COOKFOX's addition might look like back in January, when the site was still on the market. While they may have been created for marketing purposes, they do also give an idea of how large the addition will be.
The building will have three duplexes: one on the first and second floors, another on the 16th and 17th floors, and a third on the 23rd and 24th floors. Floors three through five will each have six apartments, floors six through 18 will each have three apartments, and floors 19 through 24 will each have floor-through apartments.
