Most of the hotels coming to Chelsea are on the larger side of things, but today, YIMBY has the reveal for a smaller project that is in the works for 20 West 15th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues on the southern edge of the neighborhood. YIMBY first reported on the site when applications were filed back in August of 2014, when we asked when the hotel madness overtaking the area would stop (three years later, it rages unchecked).

YIMBY revealed initial renderings of Simon Baron Development’s 269 West 87th Street back in September of 2015, before the latest image for the project was posted back in February. Now, construction is finally making headway at the site, which is about six floors out of the ground, per the latest photos from Tectonic.
With Harlem’s 125th Street seeing a proliferation of new developments in recent years, it should come as no surprise that twenty blocks to the north, the 145th Street Corridor is also growing once again. Building applications have been filed for an eight-story building at 210 West 145th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard, on a lot that is currently vacant.
A non-descript three-story home is about to meet the wrecking ball for a seven-story replacement at 268 East 7th Street, in the East Village. Building applications show the new structure will have 8,043 square feet of residential space divided between two units, the first spanning from the basement through the second floor, and the second taking up each floor above that. Amador Pons of Grzywinski + Pons Architects is designing, and Wilco Faessen is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the current occupant were approved in late August, so construction should begin relatively soon.
Office development is a rarity across most neighborhoods in New York City, including Chinatown. But sometimes it still happens, and today, YIMBY has a comprehensive look at the updated design for 100 East Broadway, which also sits next to Pike and Division Streets. YIMBY posted an early design for the site back in 2015, but since then, changes have been substantial.
