    Thanks for the news on that 482 Greenwich - slick looking building - sorry to hear that one has not started construction: maybe the 'garage project' has something to do with holding-off on constructing this new residential buiding.

    And, good observation about the trucks not using the small side streets in that neighborhood: a fair assumption. I still think the idea of putting that garage on waterfront property just 'stinks'.

    In this particular case: I agree with "these nimbys" in the area that oppose the project.

    Cheers.

    Cries for Bailouts and Wall Street hate seem to be the most popular subject of graffiti artist these days.

    Karl Fischer's 482 Greenwich Ready to Rise Over Canal Street

    June 30, 2011, by Pete Davies


    Renders of the plan for 482 Greenwich Street from McKay Architecture.

    Down at the west end of Canal Street, yet another stalled site is showing signs of life. The Arman Building project at 482 Greenwich, an 11-story stack of condos on the north side of Canal, is back on track. First proposed in the heady days of 2005, this troubled project went through many iterations before going comatose during the dark days of 2009. The proposal here was named for sculptor Arman, who used this irregular wedge-shaped lot to create his works from 1977 until his death in 2005. Now demo of Arman's ramshackle old studio building is done and recent filings at the Department of Buildings show that a 10-unit condo from, brace, architect Karl Fischer is getting ready to rise.

    The project at 482 Greenwich is from Benjamin Shaoul and Marc Ravner at the Magnum Real Estate Group, the gang who brought us the green and glassy Yves on Seventh Avenue. Renders of the plan found on the McKay Architecture website show a jumble of balconies, inset and projecting over both Canal and Greenwich, with a sharp wedge of windows where the two streets meet and a large sculpted panel standing tall over Canal. 482 Greenwich sits catty-corner across from the original Canal Street pioneer, the Zinc Building, and directly opposite the nearly complete 471 Washington Street. This trio in metal and glass offers a sharp contrast to the old bricks along this once-industrial stretch of Canal, but hey, modern is now the happening style in this part of town.

    Foundation work started. Wetland area, so probably no pile driving.

    Turns out that showed the previous design.

    Curbed did an update, showing the current Karl Fischer plan:

    Karl Fischer's 482 Greenwich Street Returns to Artsy Roots

    CURBED

    [Construction photo via WSJ.]

    Last time renderings popped up for 482 Greenwich Street, it appeared that all traces of sculptor Arman, whose studio stood on the site, had disappeared. But the disappearance isn't, as it turns out, permanent. The Journal explains that a three-story bronze Arman sculpture will be attached to the side of the Karl Fischer-designed building, at the corner of Canal and Greenwich. The building will also be called The Arman in tribute. His widow will even, as part of a deal with new developer Magnum Real Estate Group—the original developer gave up the project during the recession, following a dispute over Arman's estate—get apartments and two parking spaces in the building. The rest of the units should hit the market in January, with the ask on a 2,500-square-foot 3BR coming in at a little under $4 million.

    The interior designers at Grade tell the Journal the apartments will have "industrial touches" that are Arman-inspired. Here's one model unit image:

    The design here has been changed and a new render was added to the up-dated Curbed post today:

    Update: after the jump, the latest look of 482 Greenwich ...

    482 Greenwich Street minus the corner balconies, with the bronze Arman sculpture
    rising over Canal Street and contrasting with tan bricks:

    Image HERE (I tried to post it, but what showed up was HUGE: 3510 × 4220!!).

    What's now seen is a much better building than any of the previous plans. Nothing too different, but solid and "contextual" in a good way.

    Around the corner, 481 Washington St is being renovated.

    They left space for the big old vine that covers the bricks next door
