Construction Update: 500 West 30th Street

500 West 30th Street

Cladding is at the halfway mark on Related’s 500 West 30th Street, and the project’s aesthetics are a major improvement over the typical building stock of the neighborhood, which was rather derelict until The High Line jumpstarted rapid gentrification. Using traditional materials in a 21st-century manner, 500 West 30th Street combines modern pre-fabrication techniques with classic brick and metal. The result is a refreshing new development that showcases how new construction methods can still be used to produce historically inspired buildings.

Designed by Robert A.M. Stern, 500 West 30th Street will have a total of 386 units, and the development will be open by early 2014 – only two years after excavation began.
