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.
Another parking lot in Chelsea is set to be redeveloped. Yesterday, we caught applications for a 19-story, mixed-use building at 211 West 29th Street, between Seventh and Eighth avenues.
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.
A four-story row house on West 19th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues will meet the wrecking ball for condos, and we have a glimpse of the new building that will replace it.
It was in November of 2014 when YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 12-story, 49-unit residential project at 261 West 25th Street, in Chelsea, when the structure was nine stories above street level and still rising. Since then, construction has since wrapped up entirely on the 128,259-square-foot building, dubbed the Seymour, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The condominium units will average a very spacious 2,618 square feet apiece, and amenities include recreational rooms and lounges, a gym, an outdoor area, storage space, and a 25-space bicycle storage room – all in the cellar – a library on the ground floor, and an outdoor rooftop terrace. McGinley Design and Rottet Studio are responsible for the interiors, and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the design architect. Naftali Group is the developer and occupancy is expected imminently.
