Rye Brook, N.Y.-based Brantwood Capital has filed applications for an eight-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 500 West 22nd Street (a.k.a. 197 Tenth Avenue), in West Chelsea. The structure will encompass 33,662 square feet and will feature 1,959 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. We can’t calculate the size of the residential units, which will likely be condominiums, but there will be a full-floor unit on the second floor, two on the third floor, followed by full-floor units on the fourth through sixth floors, topped by two duplex units across the seventh and eighth floors. The top apartments will also feature rooftop terraces. Norman Cox’s Brooklyn-based Union Street Studio is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed earlier this month for a four-story building (previously two tenement buildings).
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was wrapping up on the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use project under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea. Since then, construction plans have been amended to build a slightly larger building, which is now up to the fourth floor and rising, as seen in photos taken by Tectonic earlier this month. The latest permits indicate the 315,586-square-foot project will stand 33 stories, or 367 feet, above street level (393 feet if you count the bulkhead). There will be 13,219 square feet of retail space across the ground floor, followed by 179 residential units (up from 174) that should average 1,250 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.
Back in September of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of one of the duplex penthouses at the two-building, 35-unit residential complex at 505 West 19th Street, in West Chelsea. The 10-story structures are now just about complete, as seen in photos in a Curbed NY report. The structures are conjoined by a single-story connector that spans below the elevated High Line. The eastern building hosts 25 condominiums and two penthouses, while the other building contains eight full-floor condos and a penthouse. The units will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations, and amenities include a fitness center, a street-level parking garage, and bike storage space. HFZ Capital Group is the developer, Thomas Juul-Hansen is the design architect, and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Occupancy is currently underway.
Back in October of 2015, Six Sigma was in contract to buy the six-story, 55,000-square-foot commercial building at 517-523 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea, for $54 million. The developer has since closed on the purchase and has now filed exploratory applications with the Attorney General’s office to gauge the demand for a potential condominium project, The Real Deal reports. Although details are sparse, the project would include 61 condominium units and ground-floor retail space. It’s not clear if the existing building would be demolished for a new one, although the site can accommodate up to 74,000 square feet of development potential (which means it currently has 19,000 square feet of air rights). Nothing has been filed yet with the Department of Buildings.
Last October, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building underway at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was five stories above street level. Today, the structure is roughly 10 stories in height and close to topping out, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. Glass façade is also being installed on the first four floors of the Zaha Hadid-design building. Retail space on the ground floor will measure 11,183 square feet in the 188,696 square-foot project. The condominium units on the floors above will average 3,533 square-foot apiece. Ismael Leyva Architects is the architect of record and completion is expected later this year.
