A New Village Landmark

A new village landmark

In the heart of Greenwich Village sits 116 University Place, a boutique luxury condominium building offering a collection of five full-floor corner residences with over 3,000 square feet of living space. Designed by Morris Adjmi, 116 University Place interprets the modern and historic feel of the Village that surrounds it.

A faceted facade

The coffered, oversized windows give depth to the faceted façade of 116 University Place and ample natural light into each residence. Inspiration for this design came from examining historic brick townhouses in Greenwich Village. “The use of the corbelled brick windows recalls the studio windows added to houses and apartments when the area was populated by artists and bohemians”
