Installation of The Fitzroy’s Art Deco-inspired exterior recently wrapped up at 514 West 24th Street in Chelsea. The residential building’s sidewalk scaffolding has been dismantled and the final remaining touches on the ground floor are almost complete. The large canopy that hangs over the front door is installed, while several marble slabs at the base of the structure remain covered in a protective cardboard. This should be imminently removed, fully revealing the richly textured and dark-colored façade. The L’Observatoire International-designed spotlight fixtures, which will illuminate the glazed terra cotta panels and copper-framed windows, are all in place. The 65,300-square-foot project is being designed by Roman and Williams and developed by JDS Development and Largo Investments. Residences start at $5.6 million and are being marketed by CORE.
A handsome Art Deco-inspired exterior adorns the The Fitzroy, located at 514 West 24th Street, which is now practically complete. The insides are also nearing the finish line, and will soon open to prospective residents. The project is being designed by Roman and Williams, and developed by a partnership between JDS Development and Largo Investments.
Coming to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg near the corner of North 7th Street and Wythe Avenue, 71 North 7th Street is a new project under development by Largo, with JDS as a minority partner. The building will yield 9,446 square feet of retail space and 9,045 square feet of rentable Class A office space across three floors. Sitting just one block away from the East River, the site was purchased for $10.5 million, and will feature a mix of brown-brick facade with south-facing industrial style windows, as revealed in today’s first look at renderings.
Morris Adjmi Architects has been hard at work, designing projects from 550 Clinton Avenue and 211 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn to 119-121 2nd Avenue and 110 East 16th Street in Manhattan. On top of all that, they filed permits for a new building in Williamsburg last month that will yield over 100,000 square feet. The building is at 215 North 10th Street, and today YIMBY has an exclusive reveal for a crisp new rendering of the design.
One after another, each remaining vacant lot along the nearly 1.5 mile-long High Line is giving rise to some of the most architecturally innovative design across the Five Boroughs. Each of the new buildings has their own identity and aesthetics, jostling to be the next spectacle in West Chelsea. One long-awaited and highly anticipated project is The Fitzroy, at 514 West 24th Street, designed by Roman and Williams and developed by a partnership between JDS Development and Largo Investments. Now, the scaffolding has come down, revealing what hopefully won’t be a once-in-a-lifetime revival of Art Deco stylings, built for contemporary sensibilities.
