Renderings are out for the West Chelsea development site the Related Companies bought in October for $234 million.

Starchitect Robert A.M. Stern, who designed the Abington House rental building that Related developed at West 30th Street with Abington Properties, has come up with the design for the project at 522 West 22nd Street, CityRealty reported.

The development will include a tower overlooking Hudson River Park and a low-rise portion next door. Permits for the low-rise section show it will offer 109,950 square feet of residential and retail space.

The 39 apartments will average 2,245 square feet, indicating Related plans to build very large condominiums, according to YMIBY. The building will include a basement pool, bicycle storage and a dog spa, and floors two through four are set to feature private gallery space. [CityRealty]Rich Bockmann
