Hell’s Kitchen condominium tops out
CBSK Ironstate, a partnership between CB Developers, SK Development and Ironstate Development, has recently topped out The West, a new construction condominium in Hell’s Kitchen.
The West is located at 547 West 47th Street on 11th Avenue, between 47th and 48th Streets, blocks away from Hudson Yards and near the Hudson River waterfront. A block-long development, it will rise 12 stories and feature 219 residences, which will include studios to three-bedrooms.
Residents are expected to move in next year. Sales will launch Spring 2020 and will be exclusively handled by The Marketing Directors.
Concrete, the critically acclaimed design firm, is responsible for the architecture and interior design. The West is the Dutch-based firm’s first condominium development in New York City. Concrete has designed high-profile projects around the world including the first Virgin Cruise Ship, the CitizenM hotels in NY, London and Amsterdam, as well as the Urby residential developments in Staten Island and Jersey City which are also developed by Ironstate.
Concrete’s design for The West’s exterior is meant to evoke the neighborhood’s industrial past with large volumes at street level, window walls, and a façade comprised of Dutch made bricks. The upper area of the building, known as The Cloud, is comprised of a completely glass facade. It crowns The West’s top five stories and features the building’s most spacious residences, many with outdoor terraces.
The West has 25,000 s/f of amenities. This includes two guest suites that residents can book for visitors, a communal kitchen named Hell’s Kitchen, a rooftop pool deck, gym, dog run, children’s playroom and other areas.

Renderings out for Clinton Hill rental
The Daten Group has released renderings for its planned nine-story, 135-unit mixed-use rental building at 540 Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn at the intersection of Atlantic and Waverly Avenues.

It is expected that Verizon will continue to use its portion of the property as a central office.
The proposed 95-foot-tall development totals 117,000 s/f with 91,900 s/f of residential space. The project will contain 40 affordable apartments, as part of the Affordable New York and Voluntary Inclusionary Housing programs. The remaining 95 apartments will be market rate and the building will include amenities.
The Daten Group has hired Daniel Bernstein of Kutnicki Bernstein Architects as the architect of record for the new building. Construction for 540 Waverly is scheduled to commence in the spring of 2020 with an anticipated completion date of mid-2022.
SL Green has provided $58.5 million in financing towards the project.
