Adjacent Towers to Fill Missing Tooth in Ladies Mile

Friedland Properties is moving forward with its plan to build two adjacent mixed-use buildings on a through-block parking lot at 7 West 21st Street in the Ladies Mile Historic District The project, between Fifth and Sixth avenues, will house 239 condominiums, as well as 8,200 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Each of the connected buildings will be 14-stories and rise 144 feet high, according to a plan approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
The Commission signed off on architect Morris Adjmi’s design which calls for two separate buildings, one at 21st Street and one at 22nd, connected by the first floor retail space.

The building’s ground floor lobby would run through the entire lot, while above the ground floor, a private courtyard will separate the two buildings.

Amenities include attended parking for 50 cars, bike storage, an exercise room, lounge, playroom, game room and a central courtyard shared by the two structures.

The project will be built under 80/20 program, with 20 percent of the apartments reserved for affordable housing.

Each building’s two facades will be identifiable as the same building, but tuned to the different streets that each building faces.

Both facades would look similar to those of the district’s historic loft buildings, with the lower portions of the buildings clad in stone and the upper portions faced in terracotta, and windows in the same proportions.
