Work is moving along at 500 West 22nd Street, an eight-story mixed-use project in Chelsea that YIMBY first reported on in late April 2016. Alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue, the structure is designed by Union Street Studio LLC and developed by Brantwood Capital and will yield eight residential units. The building is located at the intersection of Tenth Avenue and West 22nd Street not far from the High Line, and will span 33,662 square feet with 1,959 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and cellar levels.
Recent photos show the current state of the project, which is shrouded in scaffolding and blue construction netting. There appears to be a dense grid of windows with cinder blocks filling in for the perimeter walls. It is unclear how final façade treatment will look.500 West 22nd Street. Photo by Michael Young
No finalized rendering has been released for the development, and it may be awhile before the exterior is revealed from behind the thick blue netting and white plastic sheets that currently cover the northern and eastern elevations. Inside will be a full-floor unit on the second floor, two residences on the third floor, followed by full-floor units on the fourth through sixth floors, and topped by two duplex units across the seventh and eighth floors. The uppermost apartments will feature private rooftop terraces. Residential amenities, if any, remain unknown.
A completion date for 500 West 22nd Street has not been announced, although sometime in 2021 is possible.
