Yet another new development by Related Companies is nearing completion. Construction is underway at 507 West 27th Street, a snug single-story structure in Chelsea that is literally built under the High Line Park. While it’s not as glitzy or city-altering as what Related is building nearby, the 14-foot tall commercial structure is of interest because it showcases the possibility for small-scale development filling in underutilized plots of land.
The building will yield 9,770 square feet of commercial space, bringing a much-needed café to the area, along with nine retail spaces.
McAlpine House is responsible for the design. Construction has not yet started for the façade, though the elevation on site indicates large paneling with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows flanking a double-door entrance.
Completion is expected by Spring of this year.
