300 West 30th Street Approaches Completion In Chelsea, Manhattan

Work is nearing completion on 300 West 30th Street, a 16-story residential building in Chelsea. Designed by Studio C Architects and developed by Hiwin USA, which purchased the property from Salt Equities for $27.5 million in May 2018, the structure will yield 80 residential units and ground-floor retail space. Efin Management Corporation is the general manager of the project, which is located at the corner of West 30th Street and Eighth Avenue, a short walk from Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, and the new Moynihan Train Hall.

Construction has quickly progressed since our last update in the summer, and the building is now almost fully enclosed in its glass and metal façade. The only significant portions of the exterior awaiting completion are the mechanical extension above the roof parapet and the ground floor, which is still tucked behind the wraparound sidewalk scaffolding.

The building features a simple, sleek design with a stack of balconies and the eastern corner fully covered in floor-to-ceiling glass. The mostly blank southern façade abutting the low-rise neighbors is covered in a bright surface of metal panels up to the mechanical equipment. There are fewer balconies on the eastern and northern elevations than depicted in the rendering, but otherwise the finished product matches the projection perfectly.

Details about the residential interiors and amenities have not been fully disclosed, though it’s conceivable that the top of the structure could be home to a shared rooftop deck that overlooks the surrounding Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood. Inhabitants with northern window exposures will get views of Hudson Yards, Manhattan West and the Penn Station area, while those looking east get the morning sunrise lighting and views looking up and down Eighth Avenue.

A completion date for 300 West 30th Street had been stated on the on-site construction board for this fall, though at this rate work will be completed by early 2022.
