Just north of where Hudson Square is making the transition from a heavily residential to a highly coveted residential area, 127 Leroy Street is experiencing a transformation of its own and construction of a nine-story condominium has just topped out.
Next up is the stone and glass façade, according to renderings of a design by BKSK Architects released by Shibumi Development. Oversized, deeply inset windows will be surrounded by varying depths of stone piers and spandrels. An open, grade-level courtyard will run through the center of the building. Additional amenities will include cellar-level recreation space and parking for 12 vehicles.
The relatively small size of the new building raised some eyebrows, but the apartments are big enough to overcome most objections. The cellar triplex will stretch up to the second floor. Floors 3-5 will only have two units per floor. The building will be topped by a single, glass-sheathed quadruplex penthouse with large outdoor terraces, all the better to enjoy spectacular sunsets and Hudson River views.
For this project Rainscreen Solutions LLC received in 2018 contract to provide shop, fabrication drawings, structural calculations and attachment system for honeycomb stone & fiber-cement panels.
