Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group, which is co-developing the high-profile Walker Tower project with JDS Development Group, is in contract to acquire a 40,000-square-foot commercial building in Chelsea for $40 million.

If extra air rights are bought, PMG could construct a building as big as 75,000 square feet on the site. Kilian LLC has owned the property at 548-554 West 22nd Street near 11th Avenue. The four-story building now has event and art gallery space.

Given the building’s location, zoning laws said the site must be equally divided up as both residential and commercial space. [Crain’s]Mark Maurer
