Chelsea is about to welcome one more architectural oddity, as B+B Capital announced plans for a cantilevering condo tower at 251 West 14th Street.
The top three floors of the 11-story tower will lean over a neighboring townhouse, enabling the developers to squeeze more square-footage out of the narrow site. Designed by ODA Architects, the boutique building will feature 11 full-floor residences boasting 10-foot ceiling heights and private elevator access.
“This boutique property is located in what is considered to be one of the most vibrant and trendy areas currently in Manhattan, and is around the corner from Google’s New York City headquarters,” said Ilan Bracha, co-founder and managing director of B+B Capital. “Situated only a few blocks away from the High Line, numerous retail boutiques and prominent restaurants, the building will offer buyers both a quiet refuge along with access to exciting nightlife.”
The lot currently contains a four-story property that was built in the 1920’s and includes a sub-grade ground floor. The property lies in a C6-2A zone, providing extra buildable space, which will be utilized to develop an additional seven floors of residences along with a stunning duplex penthouse.
The full-floor residences will range in size from approximately 1,700 square feet to 2,500 square feet, with two-bedroom to-four-bedroom conversions, three full baths and private entries directly off the elevator on all floors. The ground level will feature a duplex penthouse with outdoor space. The residences will feature high ceilings with views of the Hudson River for apartments located on the upper floors. The building features entry-level bike storage, roof deck access, a common living room lobby located on the first floor and a doorman.
Bracha New York at Keller Williams NYC is the exclusive marketing and sales team for the project. Sales are expected to launch in the fall of 2015.
