A facility operated by Manhattan Mini Storage at 600 West 58th Street will soon be replaced by an 11-story and 120,000 square foot mixed-use building, according to permits that also note rejection based on incomplete drawings. The architect of record is Studio V, and the developer is Durst.
Durst is also developing The Pyramid, at 625 West 57th Street, which was designed by Bjarke Ingels of BIG. The projects will be adjacent to one another, although the BIG site is already well underway — that building will be significantly larger than 600 West 58th Street, which will measure 120,000 square feet.
In addition to 120 apartments, 600 West 58th Street will have nearly 7,500 square feet of commercial space, as well as 27,000 square feet dedicated to community facilities. The units will be average out to be quite small, at just over 700 square feet; the location is relatively peripheral, though the vicinity will spring to life this decade as several major new developments come online.
Studio V’s portfolio includes a range of progressive projects, so the eventual design of 600 West 58th will likely lean towards modern and glassy, a format that will soon dominate the vicinity, ultimately enlivening a neighborhood that has long sat neglected.
No completion date has been announced, but given Manhattan Mini Storage’s closing last year, construction is likely imminent.
