Xinyuan’s Hess Express gas station-replacing condo in Hell’s Kitchen is moving forward after the developer officially filed plans with the city’s Department of Buildings to bring over 86,000 square feet of residential development to the neighborhood, The Real Deal reports.
When we reported on the project early this year, plans called for 90 condos marketed to upper middle class families — meaning a two-bedroom apartment would cost about $1.5 million. That still seems to be the case, except that the number of units have gone down slightly to 82, and the project now has a name: Manahattan Hudson Garden Project.
Few other details have emerged for the Marvel Architects-designed building, but Xinyuan has unveiled a rendering for the building on its website. The building will also have just under 19,000 square feet of retail at the base. Xinyuan paid $57.5 million for the site at 615 Tenth Avenue earlier this year after entering into negotiations last November.
Xinyuan is best known in New York for the Oosten condo project in Williamsburg.
