Caisson pilings and ongoing foundation work have been spotted for the site of 215 West 28th Street, on the northern edge of Chelsea. Dubbed, “HAP Eight,” the project is set to stand 20 floors and 210 feet when complete. Comprised of two adjoining buildings, the site is being designed by DXA Architects and developed by HAP investments. The lot sits directly to the north of The Fashion Institute of Technology, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. The nearly 300,000 square-foot project will consist of two separate buildings, one addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street, and the second addressed as 221-229 West 28th Street.
HAP Investment Developers first announced 247-249 East 117th Street in 2017 following a purchase of the build site for an estimated $3.2 million. Today, the project is known as HAP NINE, and YIMBY has a first look at the design’s renderings from Fischer + Makooi Architects.
Permits have been pre-filed for a 19-story high-rise at 65 Franklin Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. The site is right on the corner of Franklin and Broadway, less than five blocks from the 1, 2, 6, N, Q, R, W, J, and Z trains, and seven blocks from the City Hall Park. Monzer Khafagy of HAP Investments is listed as the project executive responsible for the development.
HAP Investment Developers has proposed updated designs for “HAP 7,” a sprawling 129-unit project in Fort George, Manhattan. Located on a corner lot at 4452 Broadway, the new, mixed-use building will rise 7 stories and contain nearly 88,000 square feet of residential area. While filings indicate a mixed-use function, the new permits do not detail an exact allocation of mixed use area.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use building at 247 East 117th Street, in East Harlem, Manhattan. The project will be four blocks away from the 116th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains. HAP Investment Developers will be responsible for development.
