Construction is nearing topping out at 300 West Street, a 16-story mixed-use building in Chelsea. The structure will yield 80 residential units as well as ground-floor retail space. The project is designed by Studio C Architects and developed by Hiwin USA, which purchased the property from Salt Equities in May 2018 for $27.5 million. The site is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 30th Street, a short walk away from number of transit hubs including Penn Station and the newly opened Moynihan Train Hall.
Recent photographs show the superstructure reaching the final levels, with an array of formwork supporting the newly poured concrete columns, walls, and floor slabs. Several units above the 12th story will have their own private balconies, and a select number of homes come with large outdoor terraces.
Renderings seen in our previous update about 300 West Street showed a reflective glass curtain wall with some white stone paneling on the eastern and northern elevations, and it is likely that the envelope will retain this design. Amenities will be located on the second floor and include indoor and outdoor recreational spaces.
No completion date has been announced for 300 West Street, though sometime toward the end of 2021 is possible.
