Construction kicked off this week on the Hudson Arts Building, a new office development at 220 Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by Studios Architecture and developed by The Moinian Group, the project will occupy an entire city block between 25th and 26th Streets. According to JLL, the exclusive leasing agent for the property, the Hudson Arts Building is expected to welcome tenants by 2022, and the official groundbreaking was held yesterday.
As revealed in the new renderings first scooped by the New York Post’s Lois Weiss, the building will rise ten stories and features a prismatic glass façade from ground floor to pinnacle. The structure supports column-free floor spans ranging from 17,500 square feet to 25,000 square feet with ceiling heights in excess of 17 feet to facilitate the flow of natural light.
Select office suites will include access to setback outdoor space, some spanning two stories, in addition to an 11,000-square-foot roof deck.
Private amenities on the ground floor include large bathing areas with showers, lockers, bicycle storage, and refill stations for bicycle tires. The ground level will also include a large retail component, which has yet to be confirmed by the project team.
