Greenwich West is a new 30-story tower located at 110 Charlton Street, at the crossroads of the iconic downtown New-York neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, SoHo and TriBeCa.

The 290-foot tower will be one of the more prominent buildings in the immediate neighborhood and provide unrivalled panoramic views of the Hudson River and NY harbor.

The developer, Cape Advisors, teamed up with Strategic Capital and Forum Absolute Capital Partners to develop this 226,000 square foot residential project, which will be comprised of 170 loft-style apartments with amenities for residents including a residential lounge, entertainment suite, children’s playroom, fitness center and a roof top terrace.

The project was conceived of by an innovative team of leading Parisian architects/designers: Loci Anima, responsible for the design of the building envelope; Sébastien Segers, for the projects interiors; and Patrick Blanc for the landscape design. This French team worked in close collaboration throughout the entirety of the projects development.

The overall design is a modern reinterpretation of the classic New York loft building typology, drawing inspiration from the neighborhood’s maritime and industrial past. The elegant interiors by Sébastien Segers take their cues from the golden age of Manhattan’s residential glamour, with inspirations drawn as well from many important European sources.

Sebastien Segers Architect is responsible for the total interior design concept of the Front of House areas including: the 170 residence units, the ground floor lobby, the residents lounge and courtyard, the basement fitness center and the roof top terrace.
The design philosophy is to create for the residents an elegant and tailored environment with meticulous attention to finishes and detail, while creating a sense of calm and coziness. The simple elegance of the carefully honed interiors allow each individual to appropriate the spaces, so that each resident can feel comfortable and at home.
The project is intended to reflect the optimism and confidence that are endemic to the city of New York and its inhabitants, and while rich with historical references, the ambition here is to create a timeless contemporary and classic interior environment.

A grand stairway leads up to a generously proportioned lobby fitted in white travertine, rosewood millwork, with wall panels in natural leather. Double-height windows from the lobby frame a dramatic view of internationally acclaimed French botanist Patrick Blanc’s monumental vertical garden sculpture.

The residences of Greenwich West range from pied-à-terre studios to thoughtfully planned one, two, and three bedroom homes, many with terraces. The units range in size from 525 to 2100 square feet.
In each residence, open plans are enhanced with classic European details; quality and permanence support the individual expressions of each private owner.
The building’s signature Atelier style windows overlook views of Manhattan and the Hudson River.  

Rooftop and Fire Pit
The Greenwich West rooftop garden is a unique space for all residents. Various lounge and seating areas are choreographed into peaceful, landscaped vignettes, each offering breathtaking, unobstructed views of the city and river, and encouraging a sense of community among residents.

Greenwich West’s designer conceived of the residential amenity spaces as a sophisticated extension of home life. The Lounge with its intimate scale and sensual craftsmanship, with its central double-sided travertine fireplace. A mirrored glass skylight graces the fitness center by The Wright Fit, which includes cast concrete walls, European oak and cork flooring.
