The Maverick Chelsea rendering via HAP Investment Developers The Maverick Chelsea rendering via HAP Investment Developers
Construction has nearly topped out on HAP's sizeable new Chelsea condo-rental project at 215-229 West 28th Street. Officially minted Maverick Chelsea (formerly HAP Eight) by the young investment firm, the nearly 300,000-square-foot project aims to bring roughly 200 for sale and rent apartments to a relatively low-key block between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, across from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Residents of the buildings will be able to take advantage of the area's stimulating fresh floral options, dwindling fur trade, growing tech footprint, Madison Square Garden, and plethora of transit options.

Designed by the astute firm of DXA Studio (think One Hundred Barclay interiors and 14 White Street in Tribeca), the brawny, nearly identically-massed buildings will sport beveled, gridded façades whose extruded sections become narrower as they rise. The first panels have been installed at the western tower in recent weeks (see gallery photos). Passersby can expect these mirroring skins to capture varying qualities of light and shadow. The theme is consistent with other big-ticket developments such as Essex Crossing’s 242 Broome and JDS Development's 111 West 57th Street, both designed by SHoP Architects.
Revised building permits show a slight change of plans from what we previously covered. The buildings will have 112 rentals and 87 condos, a total of 52 parking spaces, and ground-floor retail. The floor schedule shows there will be between two and eight apartments per floor. New renderings, given to us by the developers, show many homes will have inset Juliet balconies — this is in addition to terraced units located along the buildings' setbacks. Common amenities are to include a fitness center, spa, tenant and bike storage, and a rooftop deck.

HAP EIGHT According to Viele map of 1865 which shows Manhattan's original topography and shoreline, a stream once ran through the site of HAP Eight (shown red). This likely explains the arduous excavation work taking place.
The project’s scale and scope was enabled by a 2011 rezoning of the Fur District, opening the door to mixed-use residential buildings up to 210 feet in height. Since enacted, ground-up projects such as Chelsea29, a Passive House at 211 West 29th Street, and a through-block pair of buildings at 241 West 28th Street are breathing new life into the underutilized area. Just east of the Maverick site, developer GDSNY and its partner Klovern are building a ground-up 12-story office building at 322-326 Seventh Avenue. Excavation work is now well underway.
The rezoned blocks, between West 28th and 30th Streets, are primely situated south of Penn Station/Madison Square Garden, two avenues west of the High Line, and close to Whole Foods and FIT. An alphabet soup of subway/commuter lines can be had within walking distance.
