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.
Permits were filed yesterday for a seven-story residential building at 215 North 10th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is just two blocks from McCarren Park, and four blocks from the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the design.
Earlier this year, YIMBY posted drawings and floorplans that offered an idea of what 514 West 24th Street will look like. The site will soon give rise to a 10-story condominium building designed by Roman & Williams, and we can now reveal the first rendering of the project, dubbed The Fitzroy, which also now has its teaser website.
Last year, Curbed dug up a construction rendering that showed the future of 533 Leonard Street in Greenpoint, a 19th century school building being converted to condos. Now we have a better idea of what the redevelopment will look like, courtesy of developer Largo Investments.
Back in September, YIMBY reported on the first permit filings for a new 10-story residential building at 514 West 24th Street, which Roman and Williams is designing. Now, we can reveal the first drawings and floorplans for the project, which is under development by JDS, and will soon rise next to the recently-completed 508 West 24th Street.
