HAP Investments made its mark on Manhattan building splashy rental buildings in Harlem and Washington Heights. Now, the firm is pushing forward with its first major downtown project, a two-building, 290,000-square-foot residential development on West 28th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. They’ve filed plans for the second 21-story building in the complex, at 225 West 28th Street.
A 33-story, 179-unit mixed-use building has reached its peak at 520 West 30th Street. Construction officially topped off on August 18th, according to a spokesperson for the developer, Related Companies. Photos posted to the YIMBY forums by JC_Heights and Tectonic show that structure’s frame is being filled out and installation of the glassy facade appears about halfway complete.
Since it was two stories above street level in early June, the 21-story, 95-unit mixed-use building under construction at 221 West 29th Street, in northern Chelsea, has topped out, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 105,337 square feet and rises 210 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 671 square feet of retail space, big enough for a single store, followed by residential units on the second through 21st floors. The apartments will be rentals, averaging 828 square feet apiece, of which 19 (20 percent of the total) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. CBSK Ironstate — a team comprised of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development — is the developer. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Occupancy is expected in 2017.
An mid-19th century Manhattan home will be restored to its former glory, and expanded to meet its occupants’ 21st century needs. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the restoration and expansion of 442 West 22nd Street. That is in the Chelsea Historic District.
The façade of a new 14-story, 37-unit supportive housing building has been unveiled at 257 West 29th Street, in Chelsea. This comes after YIMBY reported that construction on the project was wrapping up in June. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The new building measure 27,455 square feet and its residential units should average 661 square feet apiece. All of the apartments will rent at below-market rates, although it’s still unclear who is expected to occupy them. Supportive housing is typically reserved for the most underprivileged and tenants usually have access to health and social services. Listed amenities include storage for 19 bikes and multi-purpose rooms on the ground and cellar levels. Arker Companies is the developer and Aufgang Architects is behind the architecture. Occupancy can probably be expected later this year.
