YIMBY has reported extensively on the residential development coming to 221 West 28th Street, with our initial reveal for the project depicting a design by ME Architect. That was sacrificed for an iteration by Karim Rashid, which was then tossed for a version by DXA Architecture, which subsequently evolved into the building’s latest format.
Foundation work is underway on the 14-story, 37-unit residential building under development at 211 West 28th Street, in Chelsea. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The building will contain 24,563 square feet of residential space, which means its units should average 664 square feet apiece. All of the apartments will be designated as supportive housing. Arker Companies and the Chelsea Leaf South Housing Development Fund Corporation are the developers. Aufgang Architects is behind the design. A target completion date is unknown.
The 11-story, 12-unit mixed-use building under construction at 515 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea, has topped out.

The latest building permits indicate the structure, built up from an existing six-story factory, encompasses 36,876 square feet and rises 135 feet in height. It will include 1,698 square feet of retail space across the cellar and ground floors, followed by 12 condominiums across the second through 11th floors.
