As work wraps up on Related‘s 500 West 30th Street, the company’s plans for another residential building on the same block have just been filed with the Department of Buildings; the latest permits indicate construction is about to begin at 520 West 30th Street. The new tower will be directly across The High Line from ‘Abington House,’ and the architect of record is Ismael Leyva.
The site of 520 West 30th Street already has another structure that was just recently completed, at 529 West 29th Street, and the lot spans the width of the entire block; the two buildings will be located across from one another, though 520 West 30th will be a marked departure from its all-affordable neighbor. Price-wise, it will likely be similar to 500 West 30th Street.
Permits for 520 West 30th Street indicate that the tower will stand 28 stories and 354 feet tall, which should translate into relatively generous ceiling heights. The building will measure 207,334 square feet, with 11,725 square feet to be set aside for commercial use; the remainder of the development’s square footage will be divided between 174 residences.
While no formal renderings of 520 West 30th Street have been unveiled, the project does make a cameo in Related’s most recent set of images for the Hudson Yards; the building is nestled between The Ohm and 500 West 30th Street in the above picture, and the glimpse of the skyscraper’s architecture reveals a standard Leyva design, which includes a small glassy crown above the bulk of the tower.
No completion date for 520 West 30th Street has been announced, but given the surge in activity across 30th Street — as work on the Hudson Yards begins to accelerate — construction is likely imminent.
