Toll Brothers's 12-story residential building rising at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields's West Village campus has nearly reached its full height, less than a year after construction first began last summer. Known as 100 Barrow, the building features 33 two- to four-bedroom apartments, and it'll be a co-op, with a mix of affordable rentals and units for sale.
Plans for the building went through a bit of back and forth with the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission back in the summer of 2014. Toll Brothers City Living, the developers on the project, ultimately scaled back their plans and subsequently earned the commission's approval—not necessarily local residents' favor though.
The development of this Barry Rice Architects-designed project will help St. Luke expand in a big way. The church will expand its school at 657 Greenwich Street, according to YIMBY, by adding nine classrooms, and a new gym, which will increase the capacity of the school by 100 seats. Sales are expected to launch in May 2016.
