Architect and developer Cary Tamarkin filed plans today for a 12-story condominium building in West Chelsea.

The plans for the new building at 550 West 29th Street, near the High Line, call for a 135-foot-tall structure that will span more than 55,000 square feet. The building is slated to have 32 apartments as well as a roughly 5,000-square-foot commercial space.

Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the architect of record.

Some of the units will be floor-through apartments, according to the plans. The building will also include two duplexes.

This isn’t Tamarkin’s only development along the High Line. At nearby 508 West 24th Street, Tamarkin developed a 15-unit condo building where units range in size from 2,000 to 3,000 square feet and in price between $4.2 million and $10 million.

The new building will likely include some of Tamarkin’s trademarks such as steel-banded windows.

Tamarkin has also been active in other parts of the city. In October, his firm Tamarkin Company paid $50 million for an Upper West Side church property owned by the Archdiocese of New York, as previously reported.
