Demolition Permits have been filed for 517, 519, and 523 West 29 Street, in West Chelsea, Manhattan. The site is just blocks away from Hudson Yards. This comes over a year after reports broke that developer Six Sigma paid a pricey $800 per buildable foot for 4,900 square feet of air rights to add to the project.
