Eco Design At the Porter House; New Renderings of 35XV

New, 3 comments

MEATPACKING DISTRICT?The design of the Porter House, a 10-year-old SHoP-designed warehouse-to-residential project, has been highly praised, but for one family in the building, there were improvements to be made. They already owned one unit, and when they needed to expand, they bought the unit directly above theirs and hired Design Development NYC to create a single ecotastic 3,600-square-foot duplex. The design team?a collaboration between Design Development, wUNDERground architecture, and Damon Liss Design?gut renovated the spaces, even replacing the insulation with recycled denim material and re-sealing the windows with toxin-free caulking. The results are shown in the gallery above, with a few before-and-after photos for comparison. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

CHELSEA?FXFOWLE shared a few new renderings of 35XV, the condo building that will sit atop a Catholic school on West 15th Street. Sales are chugging along, with 24 of the 55 units in contract. The most expensive unit that sold is a 3,369-square-foot three-bedroom on the 24th floor that was listed for $8.95 million. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
