Enigmatic Condos Near The High Line; Another Ugly Rental

New, 5 comments

WEST CHELSEA?Last we heard about developer/architect Cary Tamarkin's new project on 24th Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, it was mere speculation that the High Line-neighboring site would get a smallish tower of condos. Now, thanks to a tipster, we've got the teaser site for 508 West 24th Street, which unfortunately divulges absolutely no information but does include a closely cropped photo of what the white-and-glass development will look like (above). DOB records tell us a bit more?it'll be 10 stories with 15 units and retail space on the ground floor, with a rooftop terrace, some duplexes with their own terraces, a gym, and bike storage. The design architect is the Tamarkin company, while the architect of record is Goldstein, Hill, and West, which has designed such projects as The Aldyn and The Laurel. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

CHELSEA?From the new to the... not so new. And really hideous. In light of our roundup yesterday of the city's ugliest, saddest, most unbelievably depressing rentals out there (and the Tumblr in its name), a tipster sent in this link to an Elliman listing for a 2BR/2.5BA at 166 West 18th Street. It's going for $9,000 a month and apparently has 1,400 square feet, with "unobstructed downtown views," but you would think it was a hovel based on the photos accompanying the listing. They're shot all askew, the walls are bare, the apartment's a mess, and the particular image at right is supposed to be a shot of the bathroom but looks like a total accident. Click through to the official listing for the rest of the photos. Or don't, if you want to conserve your eyeball power for good-looking, well-staged apartments. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
