239 Tenth Avenue Gets Glassy In Chelsea

We’re appreciative of the coverage New York YIMBY & Tectonic recently provided on our project on 239 Tenth Ave. in Chelsea:

239 Tenth Avenue Gets Glassy In Chelsea

The development, named the Getty after the former gas station, was designed by architect Peter Marino. The 11-story building will hold just six condos when it’s finished. They’ll be divided across 28,044 square feet of residential space, and typical apartments will measure nearly 4,700 square feet. A 13,400-square-foot art gallery will fill the ground floor.

 

Construction has progressed quickly over the last six months. In June, the structure was only a few stories tall, and by July, it had topped out.

 

The High Line runs between 10th and 11th Avenues, and most of the blocks next to it are bursting with new, high-end condo projects. The late Zaha Hadid designed a building on Eleventh Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets before she died. There’s also a 35-story tower under construction on Tenth Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets, and the Fitzroy is underway on the same block as 239 Tenth Avenue.
