Construction is complete on Park House, an eight-story residential building at 500 West 22nd Street in West Chelsea. Designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects and developed by Brantwood Capital, the 33,662-square-foot structure yields ten residential units and 1,959 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Compass is handling sales and marketing for the one- to four-bedroom homes and two duplex penthouses, with pricing ranging from $2.65 million to $12 million. Foundations Group served as the general contractor for the property, which is alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue and stands at the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 22nd Street, a short walk from the High Line. Beldan Tristate Building Materials supplied the hand laid bricks for the project.
Recent photos show the finished look of the building and its two-tone red and orange brick exterior. At the time of our last update in January, exterior work had concluded but some remnants remained around the ground floor. These barriers have since been removed and the coverings have come down from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the retail frontage.
Another addition since our last update is the array of flowering plants and shrubbery on top of the cantilevering metal canopy that hangs over the ground floor. This pairs nicely with the trees surrounding the edifice, along with the greenery of the landscaped outdoor terrace on the roof parapet.
Park House’s height and architectural style blend well within the context of the neighborhood. Clement Clarke Moore Park sits directly across Tenth Avenue, providing residents with views of the Midtown skyline to the east, the High Line and Hudson River to the west, and abundant natural light exposure year round.
