NEW YORK | 131 W. 23rd St. | 136m | 445ft | 35 fl | Pro

A new tower is in the works in Chelsea:


Permits Filed: 131 West 23rd Street, 35-Story and 445-Foot Tower Coming to Chelsea

The Midtown South boom continues to echo into ever-taller echelons, and the first permits have been filed for one of the stretch’s more significant high-rises, coming to 131 West 23rd Street. The Chelsea Associates LLC is behind the new building application, which calls for a 35-story tower designed by Stonehill & Taylor.

Perhaps more notable than the floor-count are the height and number of units; the building will stand 445 feet to its pinnacle, making it quite distinctive on both the neighborhood and overall skylines. The residential component will measure 68,195 square feet, split between 21 apartments, translating into averaging units of over 3,000 square feet.

Another 143,808 square feet will be split between a retail component and a hotel, though the Schedule A is surprising, as it actually shows residential on the lower floors, with the hotel above. This would flip what normally occurs in New York City developments, as residential is typically placed as high as possible to maximize pricing.

This one could attract a great design.
We are floating in space...

Even better news will soon be announced on East 23rd Street. Extell also has an assemblage, and there's also an 800 ft. tower coming to 41 East 22nd Street.

So E. 23rd street is going to get a bunch of towers. 450 ft., 800 ft., and no announcement yet for the Extell site (but probably very tall and skinny).

Sounds interesting, but I hope this project doesn't swallow the church next door. I've always loved that church, it looks like it was imported from some little Italian village.

Amazing height for the area. The skyline between the 20-30's street will be rising with all these other developments in the pipeline.
