New information has been revealed for Related Companies’ 507 West 27th Street, a single-story commercial building rising under the High Line in Chelsea. Thanks to a YIMBY reader, we were provided with an image of a rendering at the site, revealing it has been dubbed “High Line Nine,” for the nine gallery spaces that will be created within.
The fast-paced construction of the SOM-designed 35 Hudson Yards is about to reach the roof. A year and a half ago, YIMBY reported on the building reaching the fourth floor. Now, the tower is tantalizingly close to its final, 71st story. The structure appears to have reached supertall heights, thanks to a two-story steel girder installed this week. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development, which is Manhattan’s third new residential supertall of 2018.
Yet another new development by Related Companies is nearing completion. Construction is underway at 507 West 27th Street, a snug single-story structure in Chelsea that is literally built under the High Line Park. While it’s not as glitzy or city-altering as what Related is building nearby, the 14-foot tall commercial structure is of interest because it showcases the possibility for small-scale development filling in underutilized plots of land.
When it comes to new developments, stadiums are a rarity in New York City. But today, YIMBY has the first look at an enormous project coming to the South Bronx waterfront, dubbed Harlem River Yards, submitted to the city by a Related-led partnership. The plans would rise adjacent to Somerset Partners’ assortment of new towers already in the works, adding another major affordable housing building, as well as the City’s first dedicated soccer stadium, with 26,000 seats, designed by Rafael Viñoly. The total cost is projected at $700 million.
A new milestone has been reached for New York’s largest new development. The highest public outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere has begun to take shape near the peak of 30 Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have announced that construction has started for the outdoor terrace, which will be just one part of the multi-floor space that includes a 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, and space for events programmed by the hospitality group rhubarb, who were also responsible for the Sky Garden lounge in London.
