Developer Six Sigma just paid $21 million for a West Chelsea building currently occupied by soundstage provider City Stage and plans to turn it into a nine-unit luxury building with private pools for each apartment. That's right, Soori High Line, there's finally some competition in the private-pool amenity wars. According to The Real Deal, Six Sigma will plop another five floors on top of the existing building's five floors. In total, that'll devote 30,000 square feet to the nine apartments. (So yeah, they'll be pretty huge.) The developer also said that the facade will feature hydraulic windows that allow the pools to either be indoors or en plein air, depending on the weather. Speaking of ridiculous amenities, word is that the building may take after the Sky Garage, and build parking spaces beside each apartment along with a elevator for cars.
Some more intel came via a tipster about the existing commercial tenants:
Word on the street is that City Stage at 435 West 19th Street was recently sold and headed for condo conversion. The tenants were recently told they needed to vacate by the end of December. Rumor has it that it will be a condo conversion and that they will keep the freight elevator in place to allow for each floor through residence to park their car in their apartment (a la the sky garage). Sometimes we have to wonder just how many more development sites West Chelsea can hold. Aren't they all taken yet?
