Back in September of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of one of the duplex penthouses at the two-building, 35-unit residential complex at 505 West 19th Street, in West Chelsea. The 10-story structures are now just about complete, as seen in photos in a Curbed NY report. The structures are conjoined by a single-story connector that spans below the elevated High Line. The eastern building hosts 25 condominiums and two penthouses, while the other building contains eight full-floor condos and a penthouse. The units will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations, and amenities include a fitness center, a street-level parking garage, and bike storage space. HFZ Capital Group is the developer, Thomas Juul-Hansen is the design architect, and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Occupancy is currently underway.
HFZ Capital Group
In early 2015, HFZ Capital Group launched sales for the 262-unit condominium conversion of the 25-story, 264-unit rental apartment building at 301 West 53rd Street, in Midtown. The property, built in 1979, is currently undergoing the conversion. The residential units will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, and YIMBY can now reveal the project’s 16,000 square feet of amenities. They include a marble-cladded lobby, an outdoor dog park, a landscaped rooftop terrace designed by Terrain, a library, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and another outdoor terrace on the second floor. The interiors are being designed by BP Architects and the building is being redubbed Fifty Third and Eighth (previously The Metro). The building currently contains 16,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
Back in October, the Landmarks Preservation Commission heard a proposal that would remake a good chunk of West 29th Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. It would include restoring two landmarks and construction of a 64-story mixed-use tower. The hearing in October was paused because of the late hour and lack of quorum, and when it resumed on Tuesday, it became clear that one aspect of it was the big stumbling block.
Two buildings, one destination. That’s what’s going on at 88 & 90 Lexington Avenue, between East 27th and 26th streets in Manhattan’s Gramercy area. Two buildings – 88 Lexington Avenue, built in 1927, and 90 Lexington Avenue, built in 1958 – are being converted into luxury condominiums by HFZ Capital Group, with workshop/apd as designer. We stepped inside last week to see how the conversion is going.
Back in November, YIMBY posted the first renderings for 76 Eleventh Avenue, which is being developed by HFZ Capital. Now, we have a new set of images for the project, which is being designed by Bjarke Ingels Group. They show major tweaks to the formerly jigsaw-like design, and accompanied EB-5 materials for the project sent to YIMBY.
