Construction is still finishing up on ABI Chelsea, a 10-story residential building at 455 West 19th Street in Chelsea. Not much has changed since our last visit in late January, with construction entirely complete with the exception of the ground floor. The project, which is located between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, is designed by Lebanon-based Raed Abillama Architects with Paik Architecture as the architect of record. Developer Al Amir Holdings is expecting a projected sellout of $77.5 million. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing for the residences, which are slated to range from $15 to $25 million.
Construction has topped out at 540 Sixth Avenue, a 12-story condominium building in Chelsea. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Landsea Homes and DNA Development, the structure will yield 50 units across 80,000 square feet of residential space, with sales and marketing led by Douglas Elliman. The property, which is located at the corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, will also feature ground-floor retail space.
YIMBY recently took photographs of the ongoing installation at The XI of the warm-colored travertine façade. The project consists of a twisting pair of 36- and 26-story residential structures located at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea. Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by HFZ Capital Group, the massive 908,250-square-foot complex stands along the Hudson River waterfront and sits on the western side of the High Line. The mixed-use property will yield 236 condominiums and a 137-room Six Senses Hotel Resort Spa, which will be the first location in the United States. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction and Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
It appears that exterior progress has taken a step backward on Seaport Residences, a 60-story residential skyscraper formerly known as One Seaport at 161 Maiden Lane in the Financial District. Located on the border of the South Street Seaport District, the 200,000-square-foot building is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC, with Ray Builders serving as the contractor. Groves & Co is the interior designer for the 80 units, which are being managed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
SHoP Architects‘ 1,428-foot-high residential supertall at 111 West 57th Street is getting closer to the finish line. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the Billionaires’ Row skyscraper stands as the world’s most slender building with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1. The Midtown structure is also the second-tallest building in the city by roof height, and the third-tallest by architectural height behind the 1,776-foot-tall One World Trade Center and the 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower.
