Full demolition permits have been filed for 201-207 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea, Manhattan. Located at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and West 22nd Street, the 3,700-square-foot site is occupied by four adjacent, five-story mixed-use buildings.
According to the filing, the property is owned by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). It currently houses four 52-foot-tall structures, each with four residential units and a cellar. The structures were built in 1910 and have a cumulative 72 feet of street frontage.
Although new construction permits have not been filed, the HPD has proposed a single co-op building with 26 affordable residential units and three commercial units along Seventh Avenue. The nine-story structure would have a mix of studios to three-bedroom units, a courtyard, a rooftop garden, and a recreation room. Five units will be allocated to returning households, and the rest of the units will be for residents earning 160 percent of the area median income.
201-207 Seventh Avenue is within walking distance of the 23rd Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train.
