The façade of a new 14-story, 37-unit supportive housing building has been unveiled at 257 West 29th Street, in Chelsea. This comes after YIMBY reported that construction on the project was wrapping up in June. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The new building measure 27,455 square feet and its residential units should average 661 square feet apiece. All of the apartments will rent at below-market rates, although it’s still unclear who is expected to occupy them. Supportive housing is typically reserved for the most underprivileged and tenants usually have access to health and social services. Listed amenities include storage for 19 bikes and multi-purpose rooms on the ground and cellar levels. Arker Companies is the developer and Aufgang Architects is behind the architecture. Occupancy can probably be expected later this year.

  1. Good morning..YIMBY..down black cloth and open new building, an official ceremony ready to show public.

  2. Concerned pro-development neighbor | August 10, 2016 at 10:21 am |

    I am deeply concerned. The neighborhood has a mega shelter at West 25th Street which is quite poorly run – tons of video of drug deals on that block, homeless people not being helped but literally fighting each other on the streets (right in front of my building a block from this new development). Will there be real support here? Will folks actually get help or be warehoused while we in the neighborhood do our best by handing out fruit and water on the way home from the market and blankets on cold nights?
