173 and 176 Perry Street are a pair of high-rise residential buildings designed located in Manhattan's West Village, facing West Street. It was designed by Richard Meier & Partners, and are the first project undertaken by Meier in Manhattan, although they stand a short walk away from his 1970 renovation of the Westbeth Artists Community.[1] Construction of the buildings began in 1997 and was completed in 2002.

Reporter Penelope Green of The New York Times referred to Meier's paired towers as "beauty queens".[2] The third building in the assemblage, 165 Charles Street, to the south of the original two, was completed in 2004 and was also designed by Meier.
