Nonprofit housing group the Clinton Housing Development Company filed a permit today for 13-story, 125,000-square-foot affordable housing project in Hell’s Kitchen.

The 135-foot-tall property at 530-548 West 53rd Street, near 11th Avenue, is slated to hold 103 apartments below market rate, New York YIMBY reported. There will be 107,000 square feet of housing, 16,000 square feet of commercial space and a 1,250-square-foot community facility space. 

Perkins Eastman is serving as the architect. About a block away, the nonprofit partnered with Taconic Investment Partners and Rutterman Capital to construct a 400-unit high-end rental building at 525 West 52nd Street, including 80 units of affordable housing. The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development is spearheading the affordable housing push in that area, between West 51st and 53rd streets on the far West Side. [NY YIMBY]Mark Maurer
