Projects rising around the High Line usually don't fly under the radar, but that's largely been the case with Lalezarian Properties' three-tower development between 28th and 29th streets on Tenth Avenue. New details for the project, which has been in the works for 6 years in one iteration or the next, emerged when Lalezarian filed permits for the 379-apartment development back in September, as noted by The Real Deal. Things must really be moving along now, because Curbed Flickr Pool contributor ILNY visited the site to find a new rendering, and the first that isn't just a massing, plastered to its construction fence.
The development's 379 apartments will all be rentals, according to TRD, and will be split between a 35-story building fronting on Tenth Avenue and two 13-story buildings fronting on 28th and 29th streets. The development's Schedule A suggests that the two smaller buildings will share a cellar-level pool, fitness room, and tenant lounge. The building at 508 West 28th Street will have 45 apartments total. Floors 3 through 9 will have five apartments each, and floors 10 through 13 will each have two apartments and one half of a duplex. The rooftop will be open to tenants.
The building fronting on 29th Street will have storage for 190 bikes, partially-attended parking for 41 cars, and 114 apartments total. Floors 4 through 9 will each have 13 apartments and floors 10 through 13 will have eight apartments apiece. Renters will also have access to the building's rooftop.
The largest of the three buildings will face Tenth Avenue between 28th and 29th streets and rise a towering 35 stories. The building will have 220 rentals in total. All three buildings will have ground floor retail space. A principal of the development company told The Real Deal that they envision hosting a gallery in at least one of those spaces, which is only apt for the West Chelsea location. YIMBY's taken to calling the development the "Gateway to Hudson Yards," because of its proximity to the megaproject (but disclaimer: it has nothing to do with Hudson Yards.) Architect Avinash Malhotra is designing the project, which is scheduled to be complete in 2016.
