Exterior work on 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten story commercial building in Greenwich Village, continues. The 120 foot structure was designed in collaboration between Gene Kaufman Architect and RAAD Studios and developed by Sang Lee, Noviprop and Plus Development. It offers 30,000 square feet of office space and retail on the first floor at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 14th Street.
Since our last update in January, the steel structure has completed its treatment in preparation for the final black siding and all of the large square windows have been installed.
Some of the windows are temporarily protected with green insulation panels, while most show their transparency, showing the diagonal steel beams on the northeast corner that are part of the structure.
Below is a photo taken in late March when the glass installation hit the halftime mark.
The top of the building will host an outdoor landscaped roof area lined with glass railings and shrubbery, framed by an extension of the final steel exterior assembly. A secondary outdoor terrace is located on the sixth floor, where the building mass withdraws from the sidewalk on both the north and west sides. Transit access is incredibly convenient for future office workers as the A, C, E, and underground walkways to the L train are right outside the property.
YIMBY also showed off multiple renderings revealing interiors showcasing a wide range of materials, colors, and textures.
Occupancy at 76 Eighth Avenue is scheduled for the end of this summer.
