Over the next decade, New York will see the full build-out of Manhattan's Far West Side. With the eastern half of Hudson Yards complete and another dozen skyscrapers springing up around it, it's no stretch to imagine what the area will become: The city's mightiest wind tunnel. North of 42nd Street, where the district bleeds into low-rise, more residential Hell's Kitchen, a crop of new apartment buildings are sympathetic to the area's low scale and waning manufacturing uses. The latest of such projects is The West, a 219-unit condo development entering its final lap of construction.
Steered by a partnership between CB Developers, SK Development, and Ironstate Development, The West is one of the first for-sale apartment buildings on this stretch of Eleventh Avenue. The area was rezoned in 2011 to allow the construction of medium-density apartment buildings, and opportunistic developers have since debuted rentals such as Oskar and Gotham West in recent years. The West rises a modest 12 stories from the entire eastern block-front of Eleventh between West 47th and 48th streets in an area colloquially known as Automobile Row. The project itself replaces a Lexus car dealership that was acquired in 2017 for $93 million and a new auto showroom is anticipated to occupy the building's ground floor.

Dutch architect Concrete Architectural Associates partnered with local firm Greenberg Farrow on the design of the nearly 200,000-square-foot venture. With its brooding brick skin and industrial-sash windows, The West's lower floors mimic the aesthetic of the classic daylight factory building. Its upper floors, however, unleash a spirited display of cantilevering, glass-enclosed volumes a la 56 Leonard.
A recent visit to the site, shows the facade work is nearly done and a new mural by Manhattan-based (Scandanavian-born) artist Tony “Rubin” Sjöman has gone up along its eastern elevation. Large-scale murals have become popular among New York developers who have the taste to cover up unsightly blank walls. Sjöman has done murals for other recent builds such as The Centrale, The Nordic, and 21 West End.

The West bills itself as human-scaled, environmentally conscious, and respectful of the colorful and dynamic energy of Hell's Kitchen. Its units are a healthy mix of studio to three-bedroom configurations in simplex and duplex layouts. Many spreads will benefit from sizeable outdoor terraces that offer dazzling views of the Hudson River and/or the Midtown skyline which becomes aglow at sunset. Closings and occupancy are anticipated later this year.

Currently, there are 22 apartments on the market, priced from an attainable $795K for studios, $1.185M for one-beds, $1.78M for two-beds, and $2.765M for three-beds. The listings blend to an average price per square foot of $1,989, a price point that is even competitive with some resale condos in Midtown West. Scott Shnay, a principal at SK Development, explains that the layouts are very flexible and lend themselves well to working from home. "They are less cookie-cutter with more nooks and crannies and many have a small home office, vestibule, and foyers."

The building's 25,000-square-foot amenity package is incredibly robust and boasts a rooftop pool and deck ("Tar Beach Pool Club"), a double-height fitness center curated by The Wright Fit, a yoga studio, and greenhouse. Residents will also have on hand two guest rooms to accommodate their short-stay visitors. Even with Hudson River Park and a popular dog run nearby, the pet-friendly condo will host its own pet spa and dog run managed by Throw Me a Bone.
Despite being in a somewhat auto-centric section of Manhattan, the building has no parking garage (thankfully) though many buildings nearby have commercial garages. Like many neighborhoods of the city, the area is poised for a public space renaissance as several outdoor dining setups have opened nearby and a new protected bike lane has been installed on the avenue.
