Back in October of 2015, foundation work was wrapping up on the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use project under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea. Since then, construction plans have been amended to build a slightly larger building, which is now up to the fourth floor and rising, as seen in photos taken by Tectonic earlier this month. The latest permits indicate the 315,586-square-foot project will stand 33 stories, or 367 feet, above street level (393 feet if you count the bulkhead). There will be 13,219 square feet of retail space across the ground floor, followed by 179 residential units (up from 174) that should average 1,250 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.

The structure will encompass 38,991 square feet, of which 2,036 square feet of space will be designated for a ground-floor community facility. The residential units should average 650 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments, and amenities include storage space for 18 bikes, laundry, an outdoor space on the ground-floor, and a rooftop terrace. Montroy Andersen DeMarco is designing, although EDI International is currently serving as the architect of record. Heritage Real Estate Partners is the developer.
