A walk through the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea revealed a surprising observation at the site of 251 West 14th Street. Construction on the once-stalled reinforced concrete edifice now appears partially topped-out, due to the ascendance of the steel that makes up the final upper cantilevering levels of the ground-up 11-story residential project. Designed by Isay Weinfield and FORM4 Design Studio PLLC, there will be a total of 25 condominiums. YIMBY last reported that Pizzarotti is in charge of the build, which is located along West 14th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.
