Back in February of 2015, YIMBY reported on plans for a five-story, 35,000-square-foot commercial building at 639 Eleventh Avenue, located on the corner of West 47th Street, in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, the Wall Street Journal reports BNF Automotive Group has begun construction on the building, which will house Maserati’s new Manhattan flagship dealership. The structure will sport a rooftop terrace, high ceilings, and a glassy curtain wall. Foundation work is reportedly underway and completion is expected in February of 2017. BNF Automative Group signed a 49-year ground lease for the 5,042-square-foot property, which is owned by Samyon Ruvinsky. CAI Architecture is behind the design and Dome Architecture & Design Group is the architect of record.
