Demolition has completed at the site of 601 West 29th Street in Hudson Yards for an upcoming 695-foot-tall, 58-story skyscraper designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development. Meanwhile, the adjacent lot is almost cleared for a 520-foot-tall, 42-story tower at 606 West 30th Street, which is being developed by Lalezarian Properties and designed by Ismael Leyva Architects. The two structures will share the parcel of land between 29th Street and 30th Street to the west of Eleventh Avenue.
606 West 30th Street
Permits have been filed for a 45-story mixed-use tower at 606 West 30th Street in Chelsea, Manhattan. Located between 11th Avenue and 12th Avenue, the interior lot is close to the 34th Street-Hudson Yards Subway Station subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Lalezarian Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications. In 2015, they acquired the warehouse on the property for $36 million.
Just south of the still-exposed train yard that gave the Hudson Yards neighborhood its name, progress is being made on another two new mixed-use skyscrapers. While teasers have been shown before, the first full renderings are now out for the towers planned at Block 675. Douglaston Development will be responsible for 601 West 29th Street, and Lalezarian Properties is behind 606 West 30th Street.
Hudson Yards is making major progress, with Related’s core redevelopment over the Eastern Yards now racing towards completion. While progress on the Western Yards is still a few years away, another large site on the southern side of West 30th Street is set for an impressive transformation from under-used retail and industrial buildings into a two-towered residential and commercial project that will top-out 700 feet above street level.
Lalezarian Properties has acquired a warehouse at 606 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea, for $36 million. The site currently has roughly 30,000 square feet of development rights, and is zoned for retail or light manufacturing, but the developer is likely waiting on a rezoning that would allow for residential use. The site is located across from the High Line and Related’s multi-skyscraper Hudson Yards development. [The Real Deal]
