Rental Building News and Offers

3Eleven, a massive new rental tower finishing up in West Chelsea 3Eleven, a massive new rental tower finishing up in West Chelsea
To walk through Chelsea now, it's hard to believe this part of New York ever used to be farmland. Between a thriving gallery scene and an elevated train track transformed into a popular public park, it's clear that this is a creative setting. Between the protections of three historic districts and the efforts of local preservationists, the area remains rich in quaint townhouses and turn-of-the-century walk-ups on timeless side streets. However, a number of architecturally adventurous buildings have sprung up along the High Line, and a commercial building boom is following suit to make it a true live/work/play neighborhood.
Another plus for Chelsea is its central location and easy access to public transportation. That includes the much-maligned Penn Station, but improvement may finally be on the horizon: Governor Hochul just announced that the Penn Station revamp has moved into the design phase, and that architecture and design firms have until July 28 to submit proposals. The project calls for transforming the cramped two-story station into a sweeping, streamlined space with higher ceilings and new entrances, as well as eight acres of public space and several new buildings, some of which will include affordable housing.

Mayor Eric Adams says of the new train station, “We’re going to turn an embarrassment to a symbol of light.” The state is expected to choose a firm to lead the design process by late summer or early fall.

Over 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities are set to include an outdoor pool, private cabanas, multiple outdoor terraces, a fitness center, meditation space, many communal lounges, a pet care facility, two outdoor dog runs, bicycle storage, and a parking garage.
