Chelsea, New York
The owner wished to renovate the lobby and amenity spaces of this 39 story tall rental building for the purpose of remarketing. HMWhite’s scope included a 4th fl terrace which featured a lounge area, a dog run, and an outdoor fitness area, as well as a main roof deck with real lawn for sun bathing and lounging, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, and an outdoor shower.
The project also includes renovating the through-block privately owned public plaza, which was underused due to poor design and management. The proposed design will significantly increase the planted area and will provide multiple forms of seating to enhance social gathering. With a native planting pallet, custom lighting, and furniture design, the new plaza will become a popular outdoor green space for the residents.
