Behold, the first rendering of the new 155 Attorney Street. This incoming seven-story luxury rental building is germinating on the site previously occupied by the Plantains Wholesale Beer warehouse. The image does its best to hide the very commercial nature of this sleepy block.

Midtown Equities, which actually acquired Soho House last year, purchased 155 Attorney Street for somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 million. Design duties are helmed by Studio V.

Per previous reports, the 30,000 square-foot luxury building houses 37 apartments. The new development will also house storage space, bicycle parking, and a rec room. This is a view of the project site as of this morning. Gone is the brick box. Expect foundation work to commence shortly, as permits were issued by the DOB just last month.

What’s disconcerting, however, is chatter that contractors are working late into the night. There is no DOB-mandated “after hours work variance” currently on file with the city.
