Early in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 17-story, 50-unit mixed-use building at 232 Seventh Avenue, in eastern Chelsea, and now YIMBY can report excavation has commenced at the site. The building will measure 42,325 square feet, which includes 2,425 square feet of retail on the ground floor, and C3D Architecture is designing. Chelsea 7 JV LLC is the developer, and the project’s completion is most likely towards the end of 2016 or early 2017.
Earlier this year, YIMBY posted drawings and floorplans that offered an idea of what 514 West 24th Street will look like. The site will soon give rise to a 10-story condominium building designed by Roman & Williams, and we can now reveal the first rendering of the project, dubbed The Fitzroy, which also now has its teaser website.
At the end of 2014, YIMBY semi-revealed Lalezarian’s planned 35-story, 220-unit mixed-use tower at 323 10th Avenue, in West Chelsea. Now, renderings of the tower have been posted on-site and construction is underway, with rebar poking up above street level, courtesy of photographs by ILNY and Tectonic. The project also includes two other 13-story buildings on the other side of the High Line, at 507 West 28th Street, which will amount to another 155 residential units.
The eight-story, 65,000 square-foot warehouse at 541 West 21st Street, in West Chelsea, has been placed on the market as a redevelopment site. The property could be worth more than $65 million, according to Crain’s Business. The commercial property is primed for a hotel or office conversion. Property owner Erno Bodek has tasked Meridian Investment Sales and Rosewood Realty Group with marketing the property.
Six months ago, foundation work was underway at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, where Related Companies is developing an 11-story, 39-condo-unit building.

Zaha Hadid is designing, and the nearly 149,000 square-foot building will include 11,180 square feet of commercial space, which will be broken into two retail units on the ground floor, according to Schedule A. Completion is expected in 2016.
