Near Chelsea’s raggle-taggle intersection of Seventh Avenue and 23rd Street, a new residential building has begun its 17-floor rise skyward. The 53,135-square-foot tower designed by C3D Architecture will boast 50 rental apartments with first and cellar levels dedicated to commercial and retail uses. Floors two through 11 will be configured with four apartments per floor and floors 12-16 just two apartments apiece. According to C3D, the exterior will be clad in a subdued mix of limestone and metal panels with full-height glass windows wedged in between. The second floor will be provided a large rear terrace and all levels above will have west-facing balconies. The twelfth floor is setback and the uppermost four levels will be outfitted with street-facing balconies.

Failing to amass a larger assemblage stretching to 23rd Street, the project rises midblock replacing three commercial buildings that held sushi and Indian restaurants and a gift shop. While Chelsea’s gentrification ship has long sailed, the corner still evokes a bit of gritty old New York with a Chelsea Papaya hot dog venue, the hideous Chelsea Savoy hotel, and a mid-century apartment building that housed the nail salon where hip-hop artist Foxy Brown famously assaulted a worker for not giving her the pedicure she ordered. The project is also near the legendary Chelsea Hotel and the former McBurney YMCA that inspired the Village People’s hit song.

The Y at 213 West 23rd Street (where rents average $1,211 per square foot)was converted to condos in 2004 and a number of condo buildings surround the construction site such as The Chelsea Royale ($1,811 psf) next door, The Chelsea Atelier ($1,727 psf) across Seventh and the Whole Foods-housing Chelsea Mercantile ($2,048 psf) across 24th Street.
