A dormant Hudson Square residential project is finally moving forward. Development firm Cape Advisors has filed plans for a 27-story apartment building set to rise at 110 Charlton Street, YIMBY reports. The project was first announced towards the end 2014, and stood out for its rather over-the-top cantilevered design created by Fernando Romero Enterprise.
Cape Advisors has since scrapped that plan and gone with a more subdued look. Adamson Associates filed the application with the city’s Department of Buildings, but a representative for Cape Advisors told YIMBY that another firm will be retained to design the exterior.
So far, plans call for 167 condos with the apartments averaging 1,352 square feet in size. The building will also come with a 2,800-square-foot retail space at the base of the tower. Amenities announced so far include a gym, a roof terrace, laundry, a children’s recreation room, and parking with room for 34 cars.
At present the site is home to four warehouses and a mixed-use building. Cape Advisors paid $78 million for the whole parcel, and spent an additional $1.3 million on air rights from a building next door.
The Hudson Square neighborhood has become choc-a-block full of luxury developments in recent years. This 27-story Charlton Street tower will be located behind the massive St. John’s Terminal redevelopment project, if that moves forward. Also nearby are Herzog & de Meuron’s 160 Leroy (just outside of the square), Renzo Piano’s 565 Broome Soho, and Extell’s condo at 70 Charlton Street.
