92 East 8th Avenue

Location: New York, New York
Anticipated Completion: 2017

Located on 8th Avenue between West 14th and 15th Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, this new ground-up residential building is in the vicinity of the most reputable art galleries, offices of large technology companies, as well as the fashionable Meatpacking District.

The 6 story building occupies a roughly 26 feet wide and 93 feet deep lot, and provides 10,000 sq. ft. gross area above ground. The ground floor provides commercial retail space which extends into the cellar. The upper floors accommodate 9 rental units, of approximately 500 sf to 1,000 sf each. Most of the units have their own private terrace or balcony. The rooftop features a generous terrace shared by the tenants.

At the front façade, a fully glazed curtain wall spans over the entire height of the building, extending into the sky. A patterned print on the glass at each floor level provides privacy for the apartment and lends the façade lightness and rhythm. The side walls are clad in metal panels, setting the building apart from its neighbors and giving the all glass façade a strong framing.
