520 West 28th Street | Live Within a Work of Art

0 comments


 New Development | 520 West 28th Street
 (Photos: Courtesy of Related Companies and Zaha Hadid Architects)

520 West 28th Street is a boutique condominium being developed by the Related Company designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid. This boutique condominium will be contemporary and sculptural, creating a unique dynamism adjacent to the High Line in West Chelsea, one of Manhattan’s most exciting neighborhoods.

The 11-storey new development being built in 2014 will feature approximately 37 residences of up to 5,500 square feet with 11-foot ceilings, technological integration and tailored interiors. Designed with multiple elevator cores, a majority of the residences will have a private vestibule and entrance that adds to the intimacy of the building.

The double-height entrance lobby offers glimpses beyond to the residents’ communal spaces and outdoor garden. Large terraces, courtyard, indoor pool & spa, entertainment space and playrooms give additional opportunities to relax and entertain.

520 West 28th Street is Hadid’s first New York residential project. The design includes a one-of-a-kind chevron detail at the building center, which is both futuristic and functional—the detail creates two separate elevator banks to provide intimate residential entries. Generously scaled two- to five-bedroom residences will offer a lucky few the opportunity to live within a work of art.

Manhattan Apartments with Pools.

Condos and Coops with Pools in Chelsea | West Village | Meatpacking District

Most Manhattan apartment buildings are pre-war and were rarely built with pools. There are a few exceptions like the 1930 London Terrace complex in Chelsea. 

Today many new developments are including lap pools, so there are more pools in luxury condos and condops than ever before.

According to Corcoran's consumer report, 37%, the largest margin said a building with a pool is a top priority amenity for them.

This post is the third in a series featuring Manhattan Apartments (condos, condops  and coops) with pools. This post will focus on Chelsea, West Chelsea, Greenwich Village neighborhoods.

Chelsea: Manhattan Neighborhood Report

1 comments
updated 11/20/2013
"HOT" Real Estate Market - "COOL" Neighborhood

Chelsea is located between 28th Street and Greenwich Village on the West Side.

West 23rd ChelseaChelsea is largely a residential area with a varied mix of high-and mid-rise buildings, brownstones and industrial lofts. The architecture in this area is unique. East of Ninth Avenue, the spacious and stylish loft warehouses give way to stunning landmark townhouses, prewar co-ops and new luxury glass high-rise buildings.

For many years Chelsea was the heart of the Garment and Flower districts until recently. Chelsea today is one of the city's hottest zip codes and coolest neighborhoods. It is now considered a fashionable place to live, it began in the early 1800's as a family farm, it became more commercial later that century with the arrival of an above ground railroad.

Chelsea Landmarks and History: Chelsea's origins date back to 1750 and the neighborhood has seen a lot of change since its days as farmland. Chelsea was the city's first theater district, and was a fashionable shopping district. The famous Barney's specialty store was located at 17th and Seventh Avenue for many years before moving uptown to Madison Avenue. Barney's annual warehouse sale still takes place every winter in Chelsea. "The Ladies Mile" along Sixth Avenue is a historic district. Between the Civil War and World War I, the district was the location of some of New York's most famous department stores. It is now once again a hot shopping area.

One of the most architecturally distinct pre-war buildings is London Terrace, a 1929 complex that runs the entire block from 23rd to 24th Streets between Ninth Avenue and Tenth Avenue. London Terrace includes a common garden, a pool, and 1,700 units in co-ops (known as the Towers) and rentals (known as the Gardens.) In 1930 London Terrace was the largest apartment complex in NYC and in the world located across the street from the fashionable townhouses and brownstones on "Millionaire's Row"

Chelsea today is a vibrant neighborhood with off Broadway theaters, new cutting edge art galleries, restaurants, bars and pulsating night clubs and designer shops.

The famous landmark Hotel Chelsea is where many famous artists, writers and musicians have stayed. Currently it is closed undergoing renovations converting to condos.

Legendary Hotel Chelsea (being converted to condos)

There are many new luxury rental buildings along Sixth Avenue and many new condo developments have been built and are being developed on the far west portion of Chelsea between 10th and 11th Avenues.

Chelsea has also become a hub for media and creative people and high energy businesses. Google recently purchased 111 Eighth Avenue, one of Manhattan's largest buildings and a key hub for Internet traffic for $1.9 billion for their New York Headquarters. Numerous ad agencies and media companies including Interactive Corp.'s Frank Gehry designed glass building on the West Side Highway opposite the Chelsea Piers are making Chelsea their corporate homes.

The development of Chelsea Piers and the water park has also provided a huge economic boom to the district. Chelsea Piers offers: ice-skating; rock climbing; gymnastics, golf, two restaurants, a marine center, health club, bowling facilities, biking, roller blading and television studios.

The High Line Apartments - West Chelsea - Far West Chelsea

West Chelsea from 10th Avenue to 11th Avenue, from 16th Street north to 30th Street, is booming with new condo developments that have transformed the once gritty Manhattan neighborhood into a fashionable destination. Most of the new developments are around the High Line. New condos with park views.

The Caledonia
The Caledonia, a 26-story building, at 450 West 17th Street, at 10th Avenue, was the first development with its own entrance to the High Line park from the second floor. It sold out quickly. Prices for the 190 apartments range from $700,000 to more than $4million.

High Line project Receives Urban Land Institute Award

0 comments
New York City is the recipient of the 2009 Urban Land Institute award for excellence for the West Chelsea/ High Line Project.

Ten awards are given out to projects throughout North America.
The Urban Land Institute has been recognizing excellence in land use and development for the past thirty years.

By adopting land use policies that support development in specific transit-oriented areas, NYC has created thousands of new housing units, commercial and cultural space and acres of new open space.

The High Line, once an abandoned elevated rail line, is fast becoming one of the City's - and world's - most innovative new parks. The redevelopment of the abandoned elevated railroad structure has created a residential new construction boom on the far west side along the High Line and the Hudson river.

The High Line runs through three of Manhattans most dynamic neighborhoods, Hells Kitchen, West Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.

The park's first phase, which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, is set to open by June of this year. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street and to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009.

West Chelsea NYC's 92nd Historic District

1 comments

Otis Elevator Building

The Otis Elevator Building, built in 1911-1912

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously approved the designation of the West Chelsea Historic District, a collection of 30 architecturally distinctive buildings that recall New York City's standing as the leading manufacturing center in the United States during the last half of the 19th
century.

Several of the nation's most prestigious manufacturers had a presence in West Chelsea at the end of the 19th century and during the first decades of the 20th century including the famed Otis Elevator Company the John Williams Ornamental Brass and Iron Works -- and the Reynolds Metal Company (521-537 W. 25th St.), a maker of tin foil wrappers and bottle caps that was founded by the nephew of tobacco maker R.J. Reynolds.

The West Chelsea Historic District is one of the few remaining industrial areas associated with Manhattan's once-thriving port and waterfront. The three large properties between 11th and 12th Avenues are directly tied to waterfront business, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company Freight Warehouse, the Starrett-Lehigh Building, and the New York Terminal Warehouse Company's Central Stores.

The long blocks of West 26th and West 27th Streets between 11th and 12th Avenues form one of the city's most impressive industrial streetscapes. The remaining structures centered around the presence of rail facilities. The R. C. Williams building, for example retains a second-floor loading dock opening directly onto the High Line.

This district joins the High Line in preserving industrial architecture and infrastructure.

High Line Update

Fujifilm joins Friends of the High Line with Portrait project

Hundreds of photographs will be displayed in unique outdoor galleries to raise awareness of High Line park, projected to open in 2008.

As the High Line park takes shape above the streets of New York City, construction fencing in the neighborhood will feature improvised outdoor art galleries covered with photographs of High Line supporters from the local community and beyond according to Friends of the High Line.

The group will also launch a Web site featuring the portraits, http://www.thehighline.org/portraits.

Dubbed "The High Line Portrait Project" and made possible with a $50,000 donation from Fujifilm, the photographs capture the spirit of the inventive new park that is being built atop the High Line elevated rail structure, which runs through the Manhattan neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell's Kitchen.

The High Line Park will be a unique 21st century public space. Plans are underway to transform a 6.7acre span of former elevated train track running 22 blocks into an open park.

The 190 condominium units in The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the future High Line Park had sold out in April, within eight months of sales.

For additional information including beautiful High Line pictures photographed by Joel Sternfeld along with news, preliminary designs, a film about the history of the High Line Rail and more please visit the Friends of the High Line website.

West Chelsea: New Residential Developments

0 comments

Chelsea New Construction update:

175 Ninth Avenue (No condo towers for Seminary)

The General Theological Seminary has reversed course on a plan to build a 15- story condominium tower on its campus after news of the plan met with fierce community opposition as reported in the NY Sun. The seminary wanted to build a 151-foot tower to generate $21 million in revenue for renovation of its existing 19th century buildings. Community activists charged the tower would have been out of place in the neighborhood. Officials are now presenting a plan for a seven-story mixed-use residential building.

IMHO tax exempt landmark churches have no business in real estate development. Look for my Upper West Side construction update coming soon where I will tell you about the 21-story residential building ajoining the West-Park Presbyterian Church on West 86th Street.

The Caledonia 450 West 17th Street (Sold Out)

The 190 condominium units in The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the future High Line Park had sold out in April, within eight months of sales. The complex will also have 288 rental units available for rent this fall at rents ranging from $3,495. to more than $10,000 per month.
