Joe McMillan’s DDG filed plans for an 11-story, nine-unit condominium building in Chelsea near the High Line.

The Tribeca-based developer purchased the site at 532 West 20th Street between 10th and 11th avenues for $24.3 million in November 2014.

The new building will have nine units spanning roughly 27,000 square feet of residential space for about 3,000 square feet per unit, New York YIMBY reported. The full-floor condos will start on the third floor through the 11th floor, with the penthouse featuring a private roof deck, according to YIMBY. The building will also have 10 parking spots and 10 bike storage spaces.

The one-story Anton Kern Gallery is currently at the site. Permits have not yet been filed for demolition, according to the website.

Thomas O’Hara’s HTO Architects is serving as the project’s architect.

DDG is currently developing one of the tallest luxury condo towers on the Upper East Side. The developer is aiming for a total sellout of $308 million for the 50-story building at 180 East 88th Street. [NY YIMBY]Dusica Sue Malesevic
