Earlier this year, developer and architect Cary Tamarkin filed applications for a 12-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 550 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea. Now, a tipster has informed YIMBY that the project is making significant strides, and building permits have been granted. Highline Development Group, who is the property owner, is co-developing with Tamarkin, and CORE will eventually be handling sales. According to filings with the DOB, the building will measure 55,368 square feet, and will include a 5,065 square-foot retail component on the ground floor. Above, residences will average 1,572 square feet apiece. Demolition of the site’s former occupant was completed over the summer.
