In the first half of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story, mixed-use commercial building at 61 9th Avenue, on the corner of West 15th Street in Chelsea, and now Crain’s has the first rendering of the project. The entire structure will measure 153,754 square feet in total, and there will be 115,000 and 37,000 square feet of boutique office and retail space, respectively. Retail will be located on the cellar through the second floor. Rafael Viñoly is behind the design, and Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital are developing. Demolition permits were filed in December to remove the existing lumber shop and billboard sign. Groundbreaking is expected in mid-2016, with completion scheduled for early 2018.
When YIMBY checked in on the bluestone-clad condo building at 155 West 18th Street last month, windows were going in and the facade was snapping into place. Now, we have more renderings of the exterior and the apartments at the 11-story development.
For over a year, YIMBY has been reporting on plans for condominiums near the High Line at 514 West 24th Street in Chelsea. Now, construction of the building, dubbed the Fitzroy, is set to commence. Permits have been approved, a source told YIMBY, which means work can start as soon as possible. The 10-story building will house 14 two- to five-bedroom units, plus ground floor retail. JDS Development Group and Largo Investments are the developers and Roman & Williams has designed the building. Sales have already launched, as has a website.
Earlier this year, BBC News profiled Soo Chan, of Singapore-based SCDA Architects, which included news on his West Chelsea project at 522 West 29th Street, an 11-story, 31-unit luxury residential project. That building is now on the rise, courtesy of Tectonic, with concrete being poured for the third floor. According to BBC, 16 condominiums will feature private swimming pools, and a small 906 square-foot restaurant will be located on the ground floor. Siras Oriel Development is behind the project, and completion is expected towards the end of 2016.
