Standing nine stories tall directly across from Chelsea Market, 61 Ninth Avenue sits in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects, the new 170,000 square foot commercial structure rises 135 feet tall. Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital are the developers of the project.
Led by Rogers Stirk Harbours + Partners, the UK-based design team has proposed a large development project in the West Historic Chelsea District. Consisting of three adjoining construction sites, the firm is seeking to create a new eleven-story building at 550 West 27th Street, as well as an expanded upper section on top of 260 Eleventh Avenue and an exterior renovation of 549 West 26th Street. The proposal is now under review by the Landmark Preservation Committee as of January 10, 2019.
Caisson pilings and ongoing foundation work have been spotted for the site of 215 West 28th Street, on the northern edge of Chelsea. Dubbed, “HAP Eight,” the project is set to stand 20 floors and 210 feet when complete. Comprised of two adjoining buildings, the site is being designed by DXA Architects and developed by HAP investments. The lot sits directly to the north of The Fashion Institute of Technology, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. The nearly 300,000 square-foot project will consist of two separate buildings, one addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street, and the second addressed as 221-229 West 28th Street.
Full demolition permits have been filed for the two buildings at 322-326 Seventh Avenue, in Chelsea, Manhattan. A three-story building at 322 Seventh Avenue and a five-story building at 326 Seventh Avenue will be coming down, containing a total of six residential apartments and 12 commercial units.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 120 West 17th Street, in Chelsea, Manhattan, that will contain both residential space and a community facility. Located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, the interior site is one block south of the 18th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. It is also three blocks north of the 14th Street station, serviced by the F, M and L trains. Yaniv Garbo of GB Properties LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
