Loft Conversion Underway at 42 West Street


We’re not sure why this building hasn’t popped up on the Brownstoner radar before, especially considering the fact that it started out life as a Scarano project, but for some reason it hasn’t. Recent work on the facade though has put it firmly in our sights. A tipster wrote in to say that the windows were getting replaced. Turns out it’s part of a residential conversion that will create 59 apartments in the 50,000-square-foot loft building. And, man, is this going to be some apartment building! As the photo on the jump shows, the ceiling height–and scale in general–is very impressive. Can’t wait to see how this turns out. GMAP
