Construction is finishing up on 300 West 30th Street, a 16-story residential building in Chelsea. Designed by Studio C Architects and developed by Hiwin USA, which purchased the property for $27.5 million from Salt Equities in May 2018, the structure will yield 69 units in studio to two-bedroom layouts, as well as ground-floor retail space. Efin Management Corporation is the general manager of the project, which is located at the corner of West 30th Street and Eighth Avenue, a short walk from Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, and Moynihan Train Hall. Workshop/APD is the interior designer and Corcoran New Development is handling sales and marketing.
Finishing touches have concluded since our last update in November, particularly on the mechanical bulkhead above the roof parapet. Sidewalk scaffolding still wraps around the ground floor of the property, but should be removed soon.
All the glass and metal railings are installed for the numerous balconies, and interiors should be well underway.
The southern elevation is largely left as a blank wall with only a continuous narrow vertical strip of floor-to-ceiling glass that indicates the location of the core for the edifice.
Below is a view of 300 West 30th Street from further up Eighth Avenue.
Residents looking north will get a view of the Penn Station neighborhood and witness its vertical transformation over the coming years. No tall buildings surround the site for the time being, which allows for abundant morning light exposure on the northern and eastern elevations, and in the afternoon on the back western side of the development.
300 West 30th Street is anticipated to reach completion sometime in the latter half of 2022.

I quite like this building. The mix of glass and metal paneling is very pleasing.
Looks like something you’d find in Indianapolis, or a big suburb by the highway.
Beautiful building on a still somewhat tawdry, but improving stretch of 8th Avenue. It took forever to build.
Ugly building. Sidewalk is too narrow to support a building of this size. That is on both sides of the corner building that face the street. This is near Penn Station,there are a lot of pedestrians because of the commuters from Penn Station.
