Construction is now up to street level on the western end of 50 West 30th Street (a.k.a. 846 Sixth Avenue), in NoMad, where a 24-story, 55-unit mixed-use tower is under development. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed the NOMA, will eventually encompass 105,973 square feet and rise 315 feet to its pinnacle. It will include 10,363 square feet of retail space across the cellar through second floors, followed by residential units on the third through 24th floors. The apartments, condominiums, will range from one- to three-bedrooms, averaging 1,320 square feet apiece. Alchemy Properties is the developer and FXFOWLE Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in January of 2018.
In March, Alchemy Properties and Carlyle Group acquired, for $51 million, the three-story retail building at 2251-2259 Broadway, on the corner of West 81st Street on the Upper West Side, with plans to build a condominium project. The developer have now filed applications for an 18-story, 32-unit mixed-use building, as first reported by The Real Deal. The 209-foot-tall project will measure 123,493 square feet, of which 11,587 square feet will be designated to retail space on the cellar, ground, and second floors. The condos should average a spacious 2,617 square feet apiece, and amenities include a 39-bike storage room, private residential storage space, multiple lounges, and a rooftop terrace. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the architect of record.
There were rumors back in the summer of 2015 that the three-story, 20,000-square-foot retail building at 2251-2259 Broadway (a.k.a. 256 West 81st Street), on the Upper West Side, would be demolished for a new building, and it appears that will be the case. Alchemy Properties and Carlyle Group have purchased the property for $51 million and, according to The Real Deal, are planning to build a condominium tower. Alchemy Properties leased the building last year to remove all its tenants, and the structure will subsequently be demolished. The project could be as large as 94,000 square feet, but no demolition permits or new building applications have been filed yet.
In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 24-story, 55-unit mixed-use building at 846-850 Sixth Avenue, in MoMad, located on the corner of West 30th Street. Curbed NY now has renderings of the project, which is being dubbed The NOMA, with an official address of 50 West 30th Street. The latest filings indicate the new building will encompass 105,973 square feet and will include retail space totaling 10,363 square feet on the cellar through the second floors. The residential units, beginning on the third floor, will be condominium and should average 1,320 square feet apiece. The apartments will range from one- to three-bedroom configurations. FXFOWLE Architects is behind the design and Alchemy Properties is the developer. It replaces the site’s former single-story commercial property, which was demolished last year.
The three-story commercial building spanning 2251-2259 Broadway, at West 81st Street on the Upper West Side, is expected to be demolished to make way for a new development, according to West Side Rag. The retail tenants are currently in the relocation process, and developer Alchemy Properties is leasing the property from the owner. Building applications and demolition permits have not been filed yet, although the property’s unused air rights were subdivided from the existing structure in April.
