Governor Andrew Cuomo this week unveiled a multi-billion dollar initiative to revitalize and rebuild infrastructure across New York State. Entitled “Reimagine | Rebuild | Renew,” the 2021 agenda is touted as the largest state infrastructure plan in the country and sets in motion the improvement of state roadways, public transportation, airports, and large swaths of Midtown, Manhattan.
Construction is nearing topping out at 300 West Street, a 16-story mixed-use building in Chelsea. The structure will yield 80 residential units as well as ground-floor retail space. The project is designed by Studio C Architects and developed by Hiwin USA, which purchased the property from Salt Equities in May 2018 for $27.5 million. The site is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 30th Street, a short walk away from number of transit hubs including Penn Station and the newly opened Moynihan Train Hall.
