A small condominium building will soon go up at 163 Charles Street, behind the new Richard Meier tower in the West Village. Call it mini-Meier.
The developer Barry Leistner bought the site, a 22-foot-wide, three-story brick building behind the newest of the three Meier towers on West Street, in December for $5.9 million. The previous owner had hired the architect Zaha Hadid to create a condo tower for the site, but then scrapped his plans and sold the property.
Now, the architect Daniel Goldner has designed an eight-story brick-and-glass building that will include an upper triplex, two 2,100-square-foot duplexes and ground floor commercial space. Mr. Leistner plans to live in the triplex and will sell the duplexes for about $2,000 a square foot.
