Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Anbau Enterprises, the project consists of two structures spanning between West 23rd and West 24th Streets, separated by a private interior courtyard. The site sits almost directly in the center of a rectangular parcel bound by Fifth Avenue to the east and Sixth Avenue to the west.
Excavation has begun at 241 West 28th Street, the site of a 22-story, 479-unit residential project in Chelsea.

MAG Partners acquired the property, which is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in December 2018 and established a 99-year ground lease with Edison Properties. Thirty percent of the residential units will be reserved for low- and middle-income households.
