Mortar Architecture + Development has revealed renderings of a seven-story, residential building in Hell’s Kitchen. Located mid-block between Ninth and Tenth Avenues at 422 West 49th Street, the development will replace a 2,500-square-foot parking lot wedged between two mid-rise buildings. At seven stories, the new structure will eclipse its neighbors in height.
Permits for the building were filed in September 2018 and called for the development of a 65-foot-tall structure comprising about 12,000 square feet. Specific components include 8,750 square feet of residential area, a shared rooftop terrace, and private rear yards for the first- and second-floor tenants.
The main elevation, as seen in the featured image, features a simple industrial design with large windows in a Mondrianesque pattern.
Development is ongoing and a completion date is not yet available.
