The proposed 85-foot-tall development will yield 30,859 square feet, with 20,214 square feet designated for residential space and 1,828 square feet for commercial space to be divided into three tenants. The building will have 26 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 777 square feet. The concrete-based structure will have a mix of studios to three-bedroom units, as well as a courtyard, a rooftop garden, cellar, and recreation room. YIMBY previously reported that 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.

Amie Gross Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits were filed in May of this year for the four adjacent mixed-use building on the site. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

    NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development, oh the irony.

  4. this isn’t affordable housing when you peg iy at 160% of ami.
    it’s owned by HPD show about 100% AMI for this neighborhood so you don’t have to be a millionaire to afford to live here.

  5. Your previous article stated that “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” but now you are saying it is most likely rentals? Could you please clarify?

  6. Amie Gross? Aren’t the buildings already gross?

  7. Glad you are including a photo of what the site currently looks like. This development is an improvement

  8. Could barely believe that these dilapidated buildings exist on Seventh Ave in Chelsea, so I checked myself on Google maps, and there they are! Good riddance!

  9. These old buildings, along with the building on the northwest corner of 22nd Street have been eyesores for years. So glad to see any project go up here.
