NEW YORK CITY | Chelsea Market Expansion

Chelsea Market Expansion Approved By Planning Dept., With Conditions*

Before and after proposals submitted to the Planning Dept.

After months of public back-and-forth regarded Jamestown Properties' proposed expansion of Chelsea Market, the City Planning Commission gave its thumbs-up to the plan today. But, as the Observer explains, the commission also mandated a few modifications that might (okay—it's unlikely) calm the project's opponents. First, the addition to the market over 10th Avenue will be set back, so it won't hulk over the High Line quite as much as in the initial plans—and the addition will end up totaling about 285,000 square feet, instead of the proposed 325,000 square feet.

Chelsea Market developer Jamestown Properties had initially offered $19 million to go toward High Line maintenance, but City Planning asked that about a third of that money go toward a local affordable housing fund instead. The City Council will hold its public hearings and final vote on the plan by October 29.
