    Chelsea Market’s food concourse

    With the expansion of the Chelsea Market approved, some worry that the historic building’s food concourse will shrink or be removed, DNAinfo reported. Despite claims by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn that  it would be protected, Jamestown Properties — the building’s landlord — has no legal obligation to keep the concourse following the expansion.  [more]

    The City Council’s approval of the controversial Chelsea Market expansion will soon send two office towers soaring above the former warehouse building. But before construction gets underway, the existing landmarked building will undergo an interior renovation that will add eight new retail spaces without altering the structure’s exterior, according to the New York Times.

  • Chelsea Market building at 95 Ninth Avenue

    Google is looking across the street to the Chelsea Market building for more office space, after some attempts to soak up additional space at its headquarters at 111 Eighth Avenue were thwarted, Crain’s reported.

    The Internet and advertising giant is in talks to take about 75,000 square feet at 95 Ninth Avenue, the space across the street from 111 Eighth (where offices are in at least one instance connected via slide). The company leased 95,000 square feet at 95 Ninth, already an expansion from their previous space, about two months ago. If the pending lease is signed, Google’s total square footage at the space will be around 300,000. [more]

    The City Council voted unanimously today to approve the rezoning of Chelsea Market, paving the way for developer Jamestown Properties to build a nine-story office tower atop the converted cookie factory.

    Over the course of the approval process, Jamestown had made several concessions to city planning officials and opponents of the project, nixing a plan to build a hotel and earmarking money for affordable housing. [more]

    The City Council zoning subcommittee today approved the upzoning of the Chelsea Market block, which will potentially allow Jamestown Properties to build its expansion atop the Chelsea Market structure. Next comes the full Council vote, which is slated for Oct. 30 and will be the final word on whether the plan can move forward.

    However, the approval of the subcommittee is considered to be a last step for the project, as the full Council almost never votes against its subcommittees, Crain’s reported. [more]

  • The interior and exterior of Chelsea Market

    Jamestown Properties, the development firm behind the controversial expansion of the Chelsea Market, has agreed to amend two aspects of its proposal, according to the Wall Street Journal. Jamestown Properties will not alter certain exterior elements of the 17-building complex between Ninth and Tenth avenues, nor will it change the windows or the facade. Although the precise agreement has yet to be revealed. [more]

    The City Council held a public hearing on the proposed Chelsea Market expansion today, but City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, whose vote is key to the approval of the project, was nowhere to be found. Quinn has not yet taken a position on the expansion, but many attendees had hoped to get a sense of her views at the hearing.

    Jamestown Properties, which owns the market, is seeking to build a nine-story office tower atop the converted Nabisco factory, and had previously planned to construct a hotel on the property as well. But community groups claim the addition could devastate the historic building and increase traffic in the area. [more]

    Jamestown Properties’ controversial plan to expand the Chelsea Market finally got the green light today, although not without significant alterations. The City Planning Commission gave its unanimous approval for the project – despite opposition from Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and ambivalence from City Council Speaker Christine Quinn –  on the condition that Jamestown give approximately $12.7 million to the High Line, some $6.3 million to affordable housing in the area and reduce the scale of the additions, the New York Observer reported.

  • From left: Scott Stringer and a rendering of the proposed expansion

    A poll by the Chelsea Market Coalition shows that roughly half of New Yorkers support the market’s expansion, and that number jumps to 8 out of 10 when they are read a short description of the project, the New York Observer reported.

    Of residents in all five boroughs, 49 percent supported the project before being told what the expansion would entail — about 300,000 feet of new retail, commercial and residential space — and 15 percent opposed it. Meanwhile, 77 percent supported the plan after being told about it, the Observer said. [more]

    Having already faced off against the community board and the Department of City Planning, Jamestown Properties has been presented with a new obstacle in its bid to expand Chelsea Market. The New York Times reported that Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer will recommend today that the project be vetoed unless significant reductions are made. Stringer wants Jamestown to back off its planned eight-story, 240,000-square-foot office addition to the 10th Avenue side of the market. [more]

  • Christine Quinn and a rendering of the Chelsea Market expansion

    Jamestown Properties’ Chelsea Market expansion plans persist as a thorn in the side of City Council Speaker, and mayoral hopeful, Christine Quinn, according to the New York Times. As Chelsea’s representative, Quinn can dictate the future of the proposal, and as has been widely speculated, the decision will be key to her own political future: she must weigh the interests of the community that propelled her to the forefront of city politics against the demands of business leaders whose support she needs to win an election.

  • Chelsea Market rendering

    Manhattan Community Board 4 voted 24-14 last night in favor of the controversial Chelsea Market expansion, Curbed reported. Their support was conditional on developer Jamestown’s commitment to create 90,000 square feet of affordable housing inside the new building.

    The proposal will now go to Borough President Scott Stringer, then to City Planning and finally to the City Council, where the project will receive its final say. [more]

  • Rendering of Chelsea Market expansion plans

    Manhattan Community Board 4 will likely urge the city to reject Jamestown Properties’ controversial plan to expand Chelsea Market, unless the developer agrees to a series of costly conditions, Crain’s reported. The board is expected to ask Jamestown Properties to shrink a 250,000-square-foot addition to the property, on Ninth Avenue spanning West 15th and West 16th streets. It will also recommend that the developer donate to a local affordable housing fund, reserve space for independent businesses in Chelsea Market and seek landmark status for the building. But the most serious request is for Jamestown to eliminate its plans for a 90,000-square-foot, 12-story hotel nearby on Ninth Avenue. [more]
