Construction is nearing completion on 101 West 14th Street, a 13-story residential building on the border of Chelsea and Greenwich Village. Designed by ODA New York and developed by Gemini Rosemont, the property sits at the corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue and will yield 44 condominium units as well as 5,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space for two tenants. Sales have launched for the homes, which are being marketed by Nestseekers International’s Serhant Team and are expected to start at $1.35 million for one-bedroom units.
Our last update on 111 West 57th Street covered the removal of the exterior hoist on the northern elevation of the 1,428-foot Midtown supertall. Now, the construction crane is rapidly being disassembled from the southern face of the world’s most slender structure. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, 111 West 57th Street features a height-to-width ratio of 24:1 and will yield 60 units designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. The project is located on Billionaires’ Row between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, almost perfectly aligned with the center line of Central Park.
Construction has topped out on 251 West 14th Street, an 11-story residential project in Chelsea. Designed by Isay Weinfeld and FORM4 Design Studio PLLC and constructed by Pizzarotti, the property is located along West 14th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues and will yield 25 condominium units.
Construction is now complete on Lantern House, a pair of residential buildings straddling the High Line at 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Related Companies, the 10- and 22-story structures yield a total of 181 residential units with sales and marketing led by Related Sales LLC and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. Lantern House is bound by Tenth Avenue the east, West 18th Street to the south, West 19th Street to the north, and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building immediately to the west.
Excavation has begun at 244 East 52nd Street, the site of a seven-story condominium building in Midtown East. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects for Minrav Development, the 26,000-square-foot structure will yield 15 units, a cellar level, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and what appears in the rendering to be a roof terrace. Residential amenities have yet to be disclosed for the property, which will rise from a 5,000-square-foot plot between Second and Third Avenues. Permits were filed in January 2019 to demolish the 9,200-square-foot education facility that formerly occupied the site.
