YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 12-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 245 West 14th Street, in southern Chelsea, in October of 2014, when the structure was just about to top out. Now, Tectonic has new photos of the building, dubbed Village Green West, which show that work is practically complete and scaffolding has been removed. The 47,129-square-foot structure features 3,802 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and its condominium units should average a spacious 1,586 square feet apiece. The units will come in one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom configurations, and there will be four full-floor penthouses. Amenities include a gym and wellness center, a spa, a lounge, private storage space, bicycle storage space, and a rooftop terrace. Alfa Development is behind the project and Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is the design architect. Occupancy is expected imminently.
In September of 2015, YIMBY revealed initial renderings for the 11-story, 21-unit mixed-use building planned at 209-211 West 14th Street, in southern Chelsea. Now, the New York Times has renderings of the final design, along with other details. The 39,494 square-foot project, dubbed the d’Orsay, will sport one-, two, three-, and four-bedroom condominiums designed by Studio Jacques Garcia. Apartment should average 1,712 square feet apiece and some will feature private outdoor terraces. Amenities will include a spa, a roof lounge, a fitness center, and bike storage. There will also be 464 and 284 square feet of retail and community facility space, respectively, on the ground floor. Adellco is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is designing. The site’s old four-story commercial building was demolished this past July, but it’s not known if construction is underway.
It was over two-and-a-half years ago that YIMBY told you of plans to convert a five-story warehouse at 510 West 22nd Street into an 10-story office building. Since then, the plan has changed to 11 stories and now, thanks to images on the architect’s website, we have a new look at what how the completed structure will appear.
Back in April of 2012, YIMBY reported on applications for a new 25-story hotel at 414 West 15th Street, in Chelsea, and since then the hotel plans underwent revision and were revealed in multiple posts. But the hotel never came to fruition and now the site’s developers – the Boston-based Rockpoint Group, Highgate Holdings, and its property owner, Meilman Family Real Estate – are planning an 18-story, 130,000-square-foot office building, Crain’s reports. The structure will stand 270 feet above street level, and according to the latest filings with the Department of Buildings, there will be 108,469 square feet of commercial space. It will include retail space on the ground and cellar levels, and the rest of the property will be leased as office space. Rockpoint’s adjacent expansion project at 430 West 15th Street, which was recently completed and boasts a total 85,000 square feet of office/retail space, will connect to the new building. CetraRuddy Architecture is designing the office plans. Technically, the foundation has already been poured.
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.
