Building continues to be stalled at 251 West 14th Street, an 11-story residential challenge in Chelsea. Designed by Isay Weinfield and FORM4 Design Studio PLLC, the bolstered concrete superstructure at the moment stands greater than midway to its pinnacle. Roughly 4 flooring stay to be accomplished, together with the higher portion above the setback that cantilevers over the adjoining western neighbor. Pizzarotti is in command of the construct, which is anticipated to yield a complete of 25 condominiums.
Evaluating current images with these from our last update again in late January present the wood formwork on the middle line perimeter column of the semi-finished eighth flooring has been eliminated. This leaves the metal rebar, which was already fashioned in place and awaiting the following concrete pour, uncovered to the weather. The identical is true for the interior core partitions that function the backbone of 251 West 14th Road and stand protruding prominently on the high of the construction. This rebar meeting is exhibiting indicators of rust, with streaks of crimson rust stains on the surfaces of the concrete partitions instantly beneath. Non permanent wood railings on the eighth story, in addition to black netting and poles that caught out from the primary southern elevation, have additionally been taken out.
It’s unclear what has prompted the halt in development and when work will resume on the challenge. It’s doable that the design could possibly be simplified to facilitate completion.
