Scaffolding Comes Down on The Warehouse at 520 West 20th Street in Chelsea

Work is getting nearer to completion at The Warehouse, aka 520 West 20th Street, a mixed-use office development in West Chelsea. Located between West 19th and West 20th Street in close proximity to the High Line, the project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Elijah Equities. The 50-foot-tall brick section that makes up the bottom portion of the superstructure is finally being revealed with the disassembly of the white netting and scaffolding, while construction of the cantilevering steel structure that sits above it has topped out, bringing the total height to 105 feet tall.

Photos from street level and from above show the brick façade on the southern elevation. The exterior mechanical hoist on the northern elevation has also been removed.

The ground floor of The Warehouse will have retail and gallery space that opens up to foot traffic on West 20th Street, making up part of the development’s nearly 80,000 square feet of designated commercial space. The roof of the brick portion will feature an 18,000-square-foot outdoor terrace for office workers. Meanwhile, work is moving along on the rooftop expansion, as most of the reflective windows have been installed and the surrounding black metal panels should be fitted soon. The water towers atop the one of the two vertically extruded cores will be covered in a dark-colored screen, as depicted in the rendering below.

Completion of 520 West 20th Street should happen by the end of 2019.

  1. I have not stood on the stage of the boxing fixed, do not have to show aggression or rude before the show. So I should show modesty by saying thanks, when someone did something for me with the intention. (Thanks to Michael Young)

  2. This building retains a nice human scale..l walked up the High Line yesterday, and whatever human scale is left there is rapidly disappearing.
