Foundation work is underway on the 12-story, nine-unit residential building under development at 117 West 21st Street, in Chelsea. Dubbed The Twenty1, the latest building permits indicate the project will measure 32,541 square feet and rise 120 feet above street level to its roof. The residential units will be condominiums and should average 3,616 square feet apiece. There will be a single townhouse-style unit, six full-floor units, and two duplexes. The Amirian Group is the developer and GRADE Architecture is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
In March of 2015, the Amirian Group acquired, for $28.5 million, the vacant four-story commercial building at 117 West 21st Street, in Chelsea, with plans to redevelop the property into a 12-story, nine-unit residential building. Now, new details and renderings of the project, being dubbed The Twenty 1, have been revealed in a Curbed NY report. The existing structure is being expanded by eight stories to accommodate 32,541 square feet of residential space. The apartments, which will be condominiums, should average a spacious 3,616 square feet apiece. There will be six full-floor units, two duplex penthouses, and one townhouse. Amenities include private residential storage, a five-car parking garage, and a rooftop terrace. GRADE Architecture is designing the building and is serving as the architect of record.
Back in 2013, YIMBY brought you news of the six-story, five-unit condominium building planned at 52 Wooster Street, in SoHo, and then in mid-2014, we posted an update noting steel-frame construction was underway. Now, a tipster has sent along a better rendering of the project, as well as the link to its teaser site.
Curbed has the reveal for The Amirian Group’s planned 12-story, nine-unit residential building at 117 West 21st Street, in eastern Chelsea. The site is currently occupied by a four-story commercial structure, but the developer plans to expand upon the existing building rather than demolish it. GRADE Architecture is designing, and the developer acquired the site for $28.5 million in March.
