    Default 1 Seventh Ave - New Condo @ Carmine & Varick

    I've watched this buildig go up over the last year or so. I think the design works great for the location and, all in all, it has turned out to be a nice addition in a pretty dreary area.

    Default That's the problem when they blasted the avenues through the Village.

    We wound up with those odd parcels of land, like on Houston St. -

    1 Seventh Avenue South nearing completion 05-JUN-07



    Construction of the new 6-story residential condominium building at
    1 Seventh Avenue South is expected to be completed in September.

    The building is at the intersection of the avenue with Carmine and
    Clarkson Streets where it has a sharply angled corner that is highlighted
    by floor-to-ceiling windows on both sides of the 45 degree end
    of the building.

    The facade of the building is faced with manganese ironspeck brick.

    Rogers Marvel Architects has designed the building, which will have
    only 4 apartments.

    REcap Partners is the developer.

    Apartments have 10-foot ceilings, Juliet balconies with integrated
    planter systems and retractable stainless steel seats, built-in
    roller shade system for the windows, a video security system,
    maple floors, Poliform Varenna graffite laminate kitchens with
    Sub-Zero refrigerators, Miele ovens and dishwashers, and

    The building has bicycle storage and central heating and air-conditioning.

    Bathrooms have TOTO Acquia dual flush toilets, white
    Thassos countertops, black slate and mantra White lotus tile
    by Walker Zanger, Axor Citterio fixtures, and recessed
    overhead ambient lighting.

    The lobby has thin waffle grates, black slate and stainless steel walls.

    CURBED has done a couple of stories on ONE SEVENTH AVENUE SOUTH ...

    1 Seventh Avenue South Points the Way

    CURBED

    If you've recently headed towards the Holland Tunnel and found yourself
    stuck in that gnarl of traffic on Seventh Avenue South, you might have had
    time to notice something sharp and pointy rising nearby. At one of those
    crazy Greenwich Village intersections where the steets go every-which-way,
    Rogers Marvel Architects have managed to squeeze a new five-story, four-
    unit condo building onto a little lot at 1 Seventh Avenue where it meets
    Downing and Carmine Streets. Those streets come together to form a sharp
    45 degree wedge—and the building matches that angle like an arrow aiming
    somewhere, well, over that-a-ways. We can't find a website for the building
    yet, but the Rogers Marvel website tells it like this:
    The large expanse of glass at the 45 degree angle of the site

    creates a unique living space with ample views south. The

    rhythm and materiality of the facade respond to the scale of the

    neighboring buildings, creating a transition from the industrial loft

    buildings across the street to the smaller buildings adjacent to

    the site.
    That 45 degree angle pointing towards the south got us wondering. Where
    would one end up if we followed that trajectory? We bisected the angle of
    the building, plotted some numbers into Google Earth and drew a line. Where
    it leads might not get you through the Holland Tunnel any faster, but if you
    follow that line you'd sure have one heckuva round-the-world trip.




    [Recent photos of 1 Seventh Avenue during construction]

    The pointy end of 1 Seventh Avenue leads us right out over New York Harbor
    and directly to Ellis Island. Nice place, but why stop there? Keep going and
    we'll travel the length of New Jersey, right over little Skeeter Island on the
    shores of the Delaware Bay. Continuing south we'll see all those Mid-Atlantic
    states down below before heading out over the Atlantic near Bluff Island,
    North Carolina. Hitting land once again at Cape Canaveral we pass across
    Florida over Lake Okeechobee. From there it's down to Key West and across
    to Havana where we can grab a Cuba Libre before sailing across the
    Caribbean and zipping through Managua, Nicaragua where we meet the wide
    Pacific. Next stop is the Galapagos Islands, where we just might want to loll
    around for a while like those big iguanas they've got down there because the
    next leg is a long one, ending up in the bone chilling Sputnik Islands of
    Antartica. Too cold for you? Let's head north.



    Before you know it we're on the coast of India at Mandasa. Beach too hot?
    Then on we go, first to Jajarkot, Nepal and then Astana, the flashy new
    capital of Kazakhstan plopped down smack dab in the middle of the Asian
    steppes. Keep going and we pass over the whole of Mother Russia, hitting
    the Arctic Circle near Komi before zipping across the Arctic Sea to Norway's
    Jan Mayen Island. From there it's just a few short hops at Nuuk, Greenland
    and Sept-Iles, Quebec before we're home again and passing over sweet little
    Peachum, Vermont. Then we're right back at 1 Seventh Avenue where we
    started. Nice trip. And thanks to the gang at Rogers Marvel for the pointers.

    The Sharpest New Building in the West Village

    CURBED
    Tuesday, October 16, 2007

    The triangular One Seventh has been mostly flying under the radar, despite
    its big price tags, prime location (where Seventh Avenue South meets
    Carmine Street) and high-powered PR representation. It's a tiny job at just
    five floors and four condos, but it's big on ideas. Today, Sun archicritic James
    Gardner weighs in on the Rogers Marvel creation, which was forced to go

    three-sided because of the triangular footprint of the lot. Jim likey!
    The resulting structure is nevertheless a respectable addition
    to the neighborhood. It manages the visual pun of looking both
    stylistically up to date, with its neo-modernist vocabulary, and
    also in harmony with the size, shape, and patterning of its
    neighbors, including houses from the 19th century.
    So what does one of these full-floor apartments look like on the inside?

    A floorplan for this $1.995 million two-bedroom unit after the jump.

    To tell the truth, I failed on my first few search attempts. But I knew I had posted some stuff way back when. So I kept trying ...

    I only found it when I tried "Rogers Marvel Seventh" in a comprehensive (not thread titles) search

    how about adding "One Seventh Avenue - Condo " to the thread title

    It sure represents a furniture-placement challenge.

    $700 Luxury Apartment Unveiled

    Thursday, July 23, 2009, by Joey



    WEST VILLAGE—The wacky contest in which one furnished 2BR apartment at the angular One 7th will be rented to a Daffy's customer for $700 per month (alleged market value: $7,000/month) is underway! TONY has photos from inside the apartment, and those who wish to live the life of a naked banker can wander into a Daffy's store (but put some pants on first!) and record a 30-second video message about why they deserve the place.
