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.

The large concrete pots that form the foundation of Thomas Heatherwick’s Pier 55 park over the Hudson River are close to completion. These massive, funnel-shaped components are anchored to a number of individual concrete piers and create a striking appearance from the shore. They serve to support the pier’s undulating, rolling terrain and varying topographical elevations, which will eventually be covered in a lush landscape of vegetation and greenery. The construction site is located along the Chelsea waterfront and rises where Cunard’s Pier 54 once stood. The 2.7-acre park features a total of 425 piles and is being managed by the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT). Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, P.C. is designing the landscaping.
