Michael Shvo and Victor Group knocked down a gas station at 239 10th Avenue in Chelsea last year to make way for a glassy condo building. Now workers are installing facade panels on the building, which is under construction at the corner of West 24th Street.
Construction is now up to the 17th floor on the 42-story, 1,028-unit mixed-use complex under development at 606 West 57th Street, located on a large portion of the block bounded by West 56th and 57th streets and 11th and 12th avenues in Hell’s Kitchen. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums.
Changes are on the way to a piece of Alexander Hamilton’s familial legacy. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved work to be done at the Hamilton-Holly House. However, the changes won’t be exactly what was proposed, particularly on the house’s rear.
Developer Six Sigma has acquired, for $3.92 million, 4,900 square feet of High Line Transfer Corridor air rights for its planned 10-story, 61-unit condominium project at 517 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea. The development rights will be used to build larger and taller, the New York Post reported. Not including the recently-acquired air rights, the 9,875-square-foot site can accommodate up to 74,260 square feet of residential space, plus an additional 24,490 square feet of commercial or community space. Plans have not been filed with the Buildings Department, although demolition permits were filed in August for the existing six-story warehouse. A construction timeline has not been disclosed.
Construction has topped out on the 28-story mixed-use building under development at 577 Ninth Avenue, located between West 41st and 42nd streets in Hell’s Kitchen. Progress on the project, dubbed Pod Times Square, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 218,872 square feet and rises 300 feet to its main roof, or 363 feet to the top of its bulkhead.
