Another major milestone was reached last Friday in conjunction with the celebratory opening of Hudson Yards. 35 Hudson Yards, a 1,000-foot-tall, Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed supertall, launched sales of its 143 residential units. David Childs is the architect of the glass and Jura limestone skyscraper, which is the tallest residential tower at Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the two developers for the 1.1-million-square-foot tower. The interiors are being designed by Tony Ingrao while sales are being handled by Related Sales and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
Construction of a 419-foot-tall hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea is passing the halfway mark. Workers are currently pouring the 29th floor and getting ready to create the form work for the 30th floor. The tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Eastern Consolidated. The property successfully secured a $121.35 million debt and equity package last year thanks to the Bank of the Ozarks and Square Mile Capital Management. There will be 526 rooms divided among a Marriott, TownePlace Suites, and Springhill Suites. Each will have its own separate lobby on the ground floor and shared common rooms.

Raymond Chan Architect is the designer and the filing representative while Atari Realty is the owner of the property.
The Jardim at 527 West 27th Street is an upcoming 11-story residential complex in Chelsea. It stands adjacent to Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street project.

Meanwhile, the interiors of the 36 units are being fitted out, each averaging 2,500 square feet. The 90,000-square-foot undertaking is being designed by Isay Weinfeld and developed by Centaur Properties and Pizzarotti.
