Windows are going in on the 21-story residential project at 221 West 29th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues in Chelsea, near the northern border with the Garment District. Tectonic swung by the site recently and brought back some shots of the progress.
Façade installation is underway on the topped-out 19-story, 57-unit mixed-use building under development at 210 East 39th Street, in Murray Hill. Photos showing this come courtesy of prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 67,573 square feet and rises 185 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 7,929 square feet of office space on the ground through third floors for a “philanthropic non-profit institution,” per the Schedule A. The residential units, rentals, should average 893 square feet apiece. Eighteen percent of them (10 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. CBSK Ironstate — comprised of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development — is the developer. Rawlings Architects is the behind the architecture. Completion is expected in early 2017.
Since it was two stories above street level in early June, the 21-story, 95-unit mixed-use building under construction at 221 West 29th Street, in northern Chelsea, has topped out, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 105,337 square feet and rises 210 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 671 square feet of retail space, big enough for a single store, followed by residential units on the second through 21st floors. The apartments will be rentals, averaging 828 square feet apiece, of which 19 (20 percent of the total) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. CBSK Ironstate — a team comprised of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development — is the developer. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Occupancy is expected in 2017.
A 21-story building has risen above ground level at 221 West 29th Street, on the northern fringe of Chelsea. The 210-foot-tall building, situated between Seventh and Eighth avenues, two blocks south of Penn Station, is slated to contain 95 rental units, 19 of which are scheduled to be affordable. The project is developed by CBSK Ironstate, the group consisting of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development. The architecture firm Goldstein, Hill & West is responsible for the design that draws inspiration from its pre-war context. CM & Associates Construction Management, LLC, abbreviated as CMA, was contracted for pre-construction design consultation and construction management.
YIMBY last brought you an update on the 29-story & 57-unit tower at 301 East 50th Street, in Midtown East, back in November of 2014. Since then, the building has received the rest of its façade, per Curbed. CBSK Ironstate is developing, and the building will also include 6,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The limestone-clad structure was designed by COOKFOX Architects, and opening can probably be expected before the year’s end.
