150 Charles Street  – West Village Waterfront THE WHITEHALL BUILDING

DISCLAIMER: This is my opinion (not fact) on sites and sounds across the city!

One of the last great downtown loft buildings is being demolished and is being readied for new luxury condos.
Steve Witkoff  has owned this parcel for years.
The faltering economy (better known as “The Collapse of Lehman”) put a halt to this project in 2007.

Now it seems as if the demolition is back in full force (and soon the construction will be in full force).
Cook + Fox Architects has designed a building which should (by my estimate) house approximately 100 units and be approximately 15 stories high.

Expect this to be GREEN.
Expect this to be expensive.
And if they design, build, brand, market and sell it correctly…
Expect it to be a huge success!
