Construction at 555 West 22nd Street has reached street level in Chelsea. Designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and developed by Related Companies, the 26-story condominium project is located at 11th Avenue between 22nd and 23rd Streets, not far from Chelsea Piers and the High Line. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. This will be Robert A.M. Stern’s first residential project in Chelsea and will contain a total of 39 units, averaging around 2,245 square feet apiece.

Photos from around the site and across the street show the construction crane fully assembled and work reaching the ground-floor elevation.

At the current rate of progress at the site, the project could be several stories high by the end of 2019. The structure will be constructed of reinforced concrete with a curtain wall of glass and what could most likely be limestone.

Amenities at 555 West 22nd Street will include a residential lounge, an event room, a game center, a business center, a fitness center, a basement pool with lockers, bicycle storage, and a dog spa. A number of apartment units will feature private outdoor terraces.

Completion of 555 West 22nd Street could occur sometime next year.

    Beautiful design! Developers should realize that living in a Stern building will only grow in demand over time.
    Can anyone explain why this very large building will only have 39 units?

  2. What are they doing to protect themselves in a flood zone ?

  3. The apartment count is incorrect.

  4. If they were trying for that 50’s/60’s white brick apt house look, they nailed it

    39 UNITS, ARE YOU SURE IT’S NOT MORE LIKE 239 OR 339 UNITS.

    This is not Robert A.M. Stern 1st residential apartment building in Chelsea…. The Abington House on West 29th st is.

  7. So uncharacteristic. Back in 50th? Ek…

  8. “If they were trying for that 50’s/60’s white brick apt house look, they nailed it” – 100% agreed.
