West Chelsea has become one of Manhattan’s most desirable areas for developers thanks to the High Line and a neighborhood rezoning that coincided with the arrival of the elevated park. Curbed recently mapped the many, many developments underway along the strip, and as if 20 weren’t enough, news has just come forth about another project getting ready to take shape.
Shawn Stiles of S&S Architectural Design has filed plans with the Department of Buildings to construct a 12-story residential building at 517 West 29th Street, adjacent to the 12-unit sister project of Soori High Line. The project is being helmed by New York-based design firm Six Sigma, and will entail a 43-apartment building that will rise just 12 stories across 56,163 square feet.
According to plans, the building will not include a retail or commercial component, nor will it designate any of its units as affordable. Renderings suggest that the apartments will boast private terraces. The project will welcome a rooftop pool as one of its amenities as well as bicycle storage.
Naturally, it’s too premature to know if the apartments will be condos or rentals, but whatever they are, you can almost bet on it that they will be pricey. We’ll keep you updated as more information trickles down the pipeline.
