Deborah Berke Partners has been selected, through a competition, to design the mixed-use conversion of the eight-story, 100,000-square-foot former Bayview Correctional Facility at 550 West 20th Street, on the corner of the West Side Highway in West Chelsea.

A construction timeline has not been released. The facility was evacuated in preparation of Hurricane Sandy in October of 2012. Inmates were never transported back to the location due to storm damage and budgetary constraints.
