At the beginning of June, 6sqft reported that the Moinian Group would be moving ahead with a project at 220 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea that they had collaborated on over a year ago with the late Zaha Hadid. This is located just three blocks away from the starchitect’s only other New York Commission at 520 West 28th Street along the High Line.

At the time, the developer announced that the new building will be “a collection of signature loft-like condominium residences, a collection of penthouses and a cultural institution to establish itself as the hub of the world renowned art district that is West Chelsea.” Yimby has now revealed that Moinian filed official permits for the 11-story structure, which will boast 40 large condos, a museum, and a restaurant.

The Moinian Group bought the site, which fronts the entire block between 25th and 26th Streets, in 2002 for an undisclosed sum, and in may 2015, closed on a $361 bond. Filings from SLCE Architects (Hadid’s firm is based in London and is thereofore working with these New York-based architects) show that it will rise 145 feet and encompass 158,000 square feet. The museum will take up 23,372 square feet on the first floor and cellar, and the restaurant will be located in portions of the first and second floors. The second floor will also house amenities, such as a lounge, exercise room, pool, and steam room. Residences will begin on the third floor with a generous average size of 3,034 square feet.

Though no rendering was put out, the earlier press release hinted that Hadid had “translated Manhattan’s powerful geometries and rhythms… integrating the city’s unyielding spirit and distinctive vernacular with the finely-detailed craftsmanship of her acclaimed jewelry collaborations.”

Specific details related to the museum and restaurant moving in are not yet known, but construction is expected to begin in 2017, with sales launching later that same year. Find future listings for 220 Eleventh Avenue on CityRealty.com.
