    515 West 29th Street

    The Bauhouse Group plans to turn a High Line-adjacent commercial building into a residential property — and a gut-renovation toward that end is already underway.

    Bauhouse closed on the 35,000-square-foot, six-story property at 515 West 29th Street in September, and plans to construct a rooftop addition that will give the building an additional 40,000 square feet. Bauhouse paid $24.4 million for the existing building, but shelled out another $6 million in the last of three air rights deals last week, enabling the additional square footage. [more]

    104-111 Eighth Avenue

    More than 12 businesses along Eighth Avenue between West 14th and West 23rd streets shuttered last year and early this year as retailers struggle to pay rising rents.

    The result is many empty storefronts lining the Chelsea stretch. The bar Rawhide at 212 Eighth Avenue; clothing shop Camouflage at 139 Eighth Avenue; and Pinkberry at 170 Eighth Avenue are gone. Rawhide’s rent jumped to $27,000 per month from $15,000 per month, leading the owners in March 2013 to leave the space, which has not yet been filled. [more]

    Hudson River Park

    The financially strapped trust that controls the Hudson River Park is looking into the possibility of selling the air rights at seven piers.  Trust officials believe those sales could help generate nearly half a billion dollars for key infrastructure projects in the city.

    The Hudson River Park Trust believes that underutilized parcels along 12th Avenue would be ripe for development were air rights to be sold, given their proximity to Hudson Yards and the High Line. Many of these parcels are government-owned, including a U.S. Postal Service facility on West 24th Street. [more]

    What is the Spur? Slightly reminiscent of the Titan’s Goblet in Thomas Cole’s famous painting of that name, it looks like a massive cup or bowl that has been left in nature for a thousand years and is overrun with vegetation. Ferns and strange grasses tumble over the sides, while trees rise from the center of the structure, above a sequence of rounded steps that also serve as seating. [more]

    Edison Properties is paving the way for a development project near the High Line by replacing thousands of pounds of contaminated soil at the site.

HLP Properties, a division of Edison, began work last week to replace the soil, and hopes to build a mixed-use structure at the site, according to HLP executive Anthony Borelli. [more]
