A 33-story, 179-unit mixed-use building has reached its peak at 520 West 30th Street. Construction officially topped off on August 18th, according to a spokesperson for the developer, Related Companies. Photos posted to the YIMBY forums by JC_Heights and Tectonic show that structure’s frame is being filled out and installation of the glassy facade appears about halfway complete.
520 West 30th Street
The 33-story, 179-unit mixed-use building under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea, is now a few floors from topping out, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user robertwalpole. The project has grown by roughly 25 stories since YIMBY’s last update in April, when the structure was four stories in height. Façade installation is also underway. The latest building permits indicate it will eventually encompass 315,586 square feet and stand 367 feet in height. The ground floor will host 13,219 square feet of commercial-retail space. The residential units above should average 1,250 square feet apiece, and since the building will have a leasing office, the apartments will presumably be rentals. Amenities include a basketball court, a children’s play room, a lounge with a “glam room,” a swimming pool, a bowling alley with a party room, storage for 92 bikes, a parking garage on the ground and second floors, and outdoor terraces on the fourth and 30th floors. Related Companies is the developer and Ismael Leyva Architects is the architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was wrapping up on the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use project under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea. Since then, construction plans have been amended to build a slightly larger building, which is now up to the fourth floor and rising, as seen in photos taken by Tectonic earlier this month. The latest permits indicate the 315,586-square-foot project will stand 33 stories, or 367 feet, above street level (393 feet if you count the bulkhead). There will be 13,219 square feet of retail space across the ground floor, followed by 179 residential units (up from 174) that should average 1,250 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.
YIMBY revealed the final design towards the end of last year for the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use tower planned at 520 West 30th Street, in Midtown West, and now the project is well underway. Related has landed $200 million in loans, according to Commercial Observer, and the building has been under construction since the summer, with foundation work now nearly complete. An 11,500 square-foot retail component will span the ground floor, and Ismael Leyva is the architect of record.
