251 West 14th Street’s Concrete Core Closes in on Final Floors, in Chelsea

Construction at 251 West 14th Street has risen even with the parapets of the adjacent buildings in Chelsea, and work will soon begin on the cantilevering floors that jut out over its western neighbor. Meanwhile, the structure’s central reinforced concrete core is climbing closer toward the top of the 11-story structure. Isay Weinfield collaborated with FORM4 Design Studio PLLC to design the residential property. Pizzarotti is in charge of the build, which is expected to yield a total of 25 condominiums.

New photos of the project from street level show the reinforced concrete core approaching the final height. The climbing formwork and rebar can be seen protruding from the sides of the thick interior walls. The floor slabs are also closing in on reaching the main setback from the sidewalk.

Installation of the curtain wall has yet to begin, as it appears that priority has been given to the completion of the cantilevered floor slabs. The façade will feature a mix of floor-to-ceiling glass panels on the southern elevation, gray-colored stone slabs on the first eight floors, and darker colored panels between the glass on the upper three cantilevering stories. The asymmetrical project will certainly stand out with its irregular shape and massing. A landscaped rooftop terrace will align with the adjacent height of the neighboring building to the east.

Work on the upper three levels should soon be underway, most of which will be seen after the completion of the elevator and egress core.

Work on 251 West 14th Street will most likely be finished next year.

  1. Thanks to Michael Young: Can I pretend to be a fanfuean conscious person, but I can’t do gestures like a real maniac. I want to know why many people become mad. Is it due to the need for them not to occupy what they want? Enough, before the doctor goes out. Damn I know too much. (observe society until I neglect the progress).

  2. So this means the dreadful pile of crap next door stays forever?
