Here’s our first look at a seven-unit boutique condominium slated for a mid-block site at 231 West 26th Street in northern Chelsea. The developer is the New York-based Azimuth Development Group who plans to supersize the existing four-story building between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. Permits were filed and approved earlier this year and DOB signs have already been posted on the doorway. The 24-foot addition will blot out a few floors of lot-line windows of the adjacent co-op 233 West 26th Street, where a three-bedroom home is on the market for $4.5 million, a price that will likely be similar to its new neighbor.
The architects of Azimuth’s development are the Long Island-based Afshari Shahriar. In addition to adding 5,100 square feet to the structure, their design will provide for larger window openings and reclad the existing red brick exterior with a uniform grey brick and metal paneled facade. The building will be divided into seven floor-through homes ranging from one to three bedrooms. Each will have private elevator access and outdoor space. The project will boast superior access to tapings of the Rachael Ray and Wendy Williams shows, Whole Foods, and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Completion is slated for January 2017 according to Azimuth’s website.
