Developer Related is certainly keeping busy: not only are they responsible for the Hudson Yards office-hotel-residential megaproject, but also for a multitude of apartment buildings springing up around the High Line. That would include one slated for West 30th Street between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues, a rental building with 174 units whose northern facade will overlook the initial stretch of the elevated park's third and final phase right after it curves westward at the corner of 30th and Tenth. New York YIMBY offers the first full look at the Ismael Leyva-designed building today. The angular, reddish, solid structure looks like a jazzed-up version of mega-rental neighbor Abington House, which is also owned by Related but designed by stick-to-the-classics Robert A.M. Stern.
Permits have been filed for 520 West 30th Street (formerly known as No. 532, in case anyone was keeping track), and the building is set to rise 28 stories and 354 feet. It's directly across the High Line from the southern edge of Hudson Yards, and the renderings above show the rental through the lens of the Culture Shed and the first major tower. It also shares a lot with 529 West 29th Street, yet another building developed by Related, though that one is all affordable. Let the groundbreaking commence.
