A Lexus service building is about to meet the wrecking ball for a mixed-use residential project, complete with its own automotive showroom. Permits have been filed for the twelve-story structure at 547 West 47th street, in Hell’s Kitchen. The site is one avenue east of the Hudson River Greenway, and three avenues west from the 50th street subway station, serviced by the A, C, and E trains.
The 120-foot tall structure will yield a total 187,000 square feet, with 167,000 square feet for residential use, and 20,000 square feet for commercial use. The entire project will create 207 units, averaging 807 square feet apiece.
Floors three through twelve will have bicycle storage space and a lobby area. There will be terraces on floors three, and up from seven through twelve, as well as on the rooftop. The development will not include enclosed parking.
The ground floor will house the new automotive showroom, in a neighborhood that has multiple thriving high-end car dealerships.
Greenberg Farrow will be responsible for the design, and Manhattan-based SGSB Developers is behind the filings.
Demolition permits for the existing two-story building were submitted earlier this month. Construction is expected to commence next year, and the project is expected to be completed by 2020.
