Two new residential buildings to rise on West Chelsea sites formerly owned by Six Sigma Two new residential buildings to rise on West Chelsea sites formerly owned by Six Sigma
In 2014, near the peak of Manhattan's boisterous condo market which defined the middle of the decade, developer Six Sigma picked up a five-floor commercial warehouse for $21 million and hatched plans to add five new floors to the structure and introduce six swimming pool-infused condos to West Chelsea. Named Pool House, the High-Line-area venture at 435 West 19th Street was designed by the I.M. Pei-founded Pei Partnership Architects and would present each unit with a pool, private parking space, sunroom, and a wood-burning fireplace.

However, for several years since the sale, the warehouse building sat gutted and enveloped in construction netting with little visual progress being made. This past April, The Commercial Observer reported Six Sigma filed for bankruptcy on the project a second time, and redevelopment of the site will start from scratch under a new sponsor. The Observer noted that the developers were more than $40 million in debt after sinking funds towards transforming the former sound-stage manufacturer headquarters into a high-end condo.

Recently, a visit to the block shows construction workers on-site and a new rendering posted depicting a new and very plain design. Pool House's former lender, Churchill Real Estate Holdings, is now listed on permits and per the Observer ousted Six Sigma as the developer earlier this year.
Revised building permits hint of a less lavish development with the planned unit count growing from six to 19. Three floors will be added to the warehouse structure bringing it to eight and there will be between two to four apartments per floor on lower levels and floor-through penthouses above. Rand Engineering and Architecture are listed as the architects of record.

Churchill Real Estate Holdings also acquired ownership of another Six Sigma site nearby at 519 West 29th Street where 60 apartments are planned. The preexisting warehouse building was demolished earlier this year but construction has yet to begin. Rand Engineering and Architecture is also listed as designers of record for this venture.
