Portions of Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld’s Jardim condominium is now reaching street level as foundation work for the Chelsea development are now coming to an end.
The mid-block site at 525 West 27th St. is giving way to a set of two 11-story condo buildings encasing an elevated garden. Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group is responsible for the 95,000 square-foot complex. They purchased the site formerly occupied by the Pink Elephant nightclub in 2014 for $45 million.
The $62 million development is Weinfeld’s foray into New York’s design world. Building amenities include a private driveway, on-site parking, landscaped gardens, an indoor skylit swimming pool, fitness center, massage room, children’s playroom, tenants’ storage and a bicycle storage room. Completion is scheduled for sometime in 2017. [6sqft] — TRD
