In a follow-up to the ongoing news about the six-story condo building set to rise atop Sin-e, it’s time to revisit the two new luxury developments that are nearing completion just a few doors north.

Both 155 and 164 Attorney Street have been under construction since the spring of 2013. The competing developments were engaged in quite a race to the finish line, but it was the latter property that ultimately crossed first. Neither is ready for their upper crust denizens just yet, though.

164 Attorney Street is comprised of 18,154 residential square-footage allocated over 22 rental apartment units; 973 square-feet of the ground level is designated for commercial usage. Newman Design is the architect of record on the project. The property isn’t of sound base, though, as the unfinished product was put on the open market one year ago for $20 million. (No sale transpired, according to city records.)

As for 155 Attorney, there had been some drama over the foundation, which initially slowed the ascent. There was also a stream of stop-work orders issued by the Department of Buildings. Regardless of these mishaps, the seven-story superstructure has since capped, though the exterior remains in progress. It’ll boast 36 apartments and a fancy-shmancy “luxury amenity package.”

Midtown Equities, which actually acquired Soho House, purchased the 30,000 square-foot development parcel in 2013 for $15 million. (This was the former home of the Plaintains Wholesale garage.) Design duties are helmed by Studio V. The completed product, however, diverges a bit from the initial blue-sky renderings…
