The terracotta paneling is rising up the slender façade of 30 East 31st Street in NoMad and has reached the lattice crown of cross beams at the top of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Reuveni Real Estate is marketing the building’s 42 units, which will be spread across just over 70,000 square feet for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices range from $1.65 to $12 million.
Work is progressing on the façade and interiors of 128 West 23rd Street, a topped-out 15-story residential building in Chelsea. Located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, the project will yield 40,230 square feet of residential space split among 33 units, for an average of 1,200 square feet apiece. Valyrian Capital and Pan Brothers are developing the building with Kutnicki Bernstein Architects as the architect of record.
Exterior work is wrapping up on The Warehouse, a mixed-use office conversion of an industrial building with a rooftop addition at 520 West 20th Street in West Chelsea. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Elijah Equities, the property is located between West 19th Street and West 20th Street, steps away from the High Line.
Exterior work is wrapping up on ABI Chelsea, aka 455 West 19th Street, a ten-story residential building in Chelsea. Only the ground floor behind the sidewalk scaffolding remains to be completed. The ten-unit condominium development is designed by Raed Abillama Architects, a Lebanon-based firm, while Paik Architecture is serving as the architect of record. The project is developed by Al Amir Holdings, which is expecting a projected sellout of $77.5 million.
Thomas Heatherwick’s 2.4-acre Chelsea park at Pier 55, aka Little Island, continues to take shape above the Hudson River. More of the funnel-shaped concrete pots have been installed on the western end of the project, which reaches 62 feet high at its peak. Large black sheets are spread out across the tops of the sloped surfaces, most likely indicating that a concrete pour recently occurred. Work is being managed by the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT), and MNLA is designing the landscaping.
