A Hudson Yards-adjacent megadevelopment is officially moving forward. Developer Doulgaston Development has pre-filed plans for a 58-story residential building set to rise at 601 West 29th Street. The developer scored approvals from the City Council for this massive project back in June.

The building will be designed by FXCollaborative and feature a staggering 931 apartments. Just a little less than a third of these apartments will be offered up as affordable apartments through the city’s affordable housing lottery system. YIMBY was the first to report on the filing of these plans.

Demolition plans have also been filed with the city’s Department of Buildings to remove the existing, single-story structure at the site, which is located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Eventually the new building will stand 601 feet tall.

Amenities announced for the building so far include a fitness center, a dog grooming center, a music room, a sports simulation room, a garden, an outdoor pool, bicycle storage, and valet parking for just over 200 cars.

Independent of this development, though part of the same rezoning process, developer Lalezarian Properties plans to erect a 37-story residential building at 606 West 30th Street that will bring an additional 220 apartments to the neighborhood. Plans for that project are yet to be filed.
