Excavation and piling work is starting up for 322-326 Seventh Avenue, aka “28 & 7“, a 12-story class A office building designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. An excavator is positioned on the northern corner of the Chelsea property along with a pile of stacked hollow metal pilings. Klövern and GDS Development are the developers of the project, while Triton Construction is building the structure.
Klövern and GDS Development recently broke ground on a new Manhattan boutique office project in Chelsea, called 28 & 7. Skidmore Owings & Merrill is the designer of the 12-story, class A office structure, which is located at 322-326 Seventh Avenue and is one of three properties that the two developers are working together on in New York City. Klövern is aiming to bring a more Scandinavian-inspired approach to the office market with higher sustainability standards and a more “human-scaled” design approach.
Work at the corner lot for 1241 Broadway in NoMad is seeing a lot of activity in preparation for a 22-story, SOM-designed commercial office building. Excavation on the perimeter of the site is finishing up, while work on the reinforced concrete foundations and core walls is happening simultaneously. This is a rapid change of pace since YIMBY last visited the Midtown location a couple months ago, when it was still quiet. The future 318-foot-tall, 170,000-square-foot tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. Triton Construction is currently in charge of building the structure.
Construction at 500 West 25th Street is now topped out and the installation of glass panels in the curtain wall is almost complete. GF55 Partners is the architect of record for the ten-story building while GDS Development is the developer. The site is located next to the High Line at the corner of West 25th Street and Tenth Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story class A office building at 322 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea, Manhattan. Located on the northwest corner of 28th Street and Seventh avenue, the lot is steps away from the 28th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. It is also directly opposite the Fashion Institute of Technology. Michael Kirchmann and Alan Rudikoff of GDSNY is developing the boutique office tower.
