Below-grade work is progressing at 241 West 28th Street, a 22-story, 479-unit residential project in Chelsea. Designed by COOKFOX for MAG Partners, Atalaya, Safanad, and Qualitas, the two-tower development recently acquired $173 million in construction financing arranged by Maverick Commercial Properties. MAG Partners acquired the Midtown, Manhattan property in December 2018 and established a 99-year ground lease with Edison Properties. 241 West 28th Street is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues and will have 30 percent of residential units reserved for low- and middle-income households. Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor.

Melillo + Bauer Associates is the landscape architect, DeSimone Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer, and AMA Consulting Engineers is the mechanical engineer for the project, which is bound by Christopher Columbus Drive to the north, Montgomery Street to the south, Washington Street to the east, and Warren Street to the west.
It looks like Billionaires’ Row is about to get another supertall in the near future. Plans for a mixed-use 1,100-foot-tall tower at 41-47 West 57th Street have been spotted according to the New York DOB, where the applicant, BOB 57, LLC., proposes a 63-story supertall with just under 443,100 square feet of newly built space. About 237,100 square feet will be devoted toward residential usage with 119 units, while nearly 205,100 square feet of commercial space will make room for a 158-room hotel and a 10,212-square-foot restaurant. The Midtown, Manhattan site is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and has frontage along both West 57th and West 58th Streets. This would be the tallest structure between SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street and Rafael Vinoly‘s 432 Park Avenue.
