Greenwich Village's Bowlmor Lanes was one of the oldest bowling alleys in New York City when it was razed last year for a new condo developed by Macklowe and Goldman Sachs and designed by Annabelle Selldorf. Although there's been a slow leak of information concerning the building—pricing, unit count, and even an interior rendering—one thing that had yet to show up is an actual look at the building itself.
That changed today with a feature in the New York Times on the development at 21 East 12th Street. The building will be clad in a sand-colored stone, and have casement windows measuring 8 feet by 5.6 feet. The building will stand 300 feet tall—a tower, by Greenwich Village standards—and can be built as-of-right, without the approval of the city.
The three-story retail podium will be topped by a terrace that will be divided into two 3,200-square-foot private gardens for the development's two townhouses, and also include a garden attached to the building's resident's lounge.
The Times piece also comes with word that the building will now stand 22 stories, as opposed to 23, and will have 52 condos, all of which will be corner units. Sales are expected to begin in June, and work on the building should be wrapping up in late 2017 or early 2018.
