The ABI Chelsea, aka 455 West 19th Street, an upcoming residential project between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, is nearing completion. The ten-story building is designed by Raed Abillama Architects, a Lebanon-based firm, while Paik Architecture is serving as the architect of record. The ten-unit condominium is being developed by Al Amir Holdings, which is expecting a projected sellout of $77.5 million.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will again review proposals from Vornado and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners to redevelop and expand an existing building in the city’s West Chelsea Historic District.
Work on the foundations for 132 West 28th Street is now underway. Located in Chelsea between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, the structure will be a 326-foot-tall, 32-story Aloft Hotel with 203 rooms. Peter Poon Architects is behind the design while Frank Ng is the developer. Recent photos show that the building is one floor away from reaching street level.
Work at 113 West 24th Street is in full swing as the upcoming 420-foot-tall Marriott hotel has now risen above street level. The 38-story project is located in Chelsea between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue and is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects with Lam Generation as the developer.
Construction of a 419-foot-tall hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea is passing the halfway mark. Workers are currently pouring the 29th floor and getting ready to create the form work for the 30th floor. The tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Eastern Consolidated. The property successfully secured a $121.35 million debt and equity package last year thanks to the Bank of the Ozarks and Square Mile Capital Management. There will be 526 rooms divided among a Marriott, TownePlace Suites, and Springhill Suites. Each will have its own separate lobby on the ground floor and shared common rooms.
