Zombie Spotted Far West of Times Square

New, 1 comment

Clawing its way back to life from the dried lakebed of the former Hell's Kitchen Swimming Hole may be the nondo zombie ghost of Atelier 2. Plans for the 45-story, 764-unit tower at 604 West 42nd Street were struck down in the prime of development a few years ago as the money dried up and the foundation filled in with rain and melt water. Plans for Costas Kondylis' tower were sharply abbreviated to a possible two-story retail space, but soaring residential rents seems to have breathed new life into the building's original concept. According to to The Wall Street Journal, Starwood Capital Group and Rose Associates Inc. are in talks with site developer Joseph Moinian to try again as a rental apartment.
