High Line Nine ~ Nine New Affordable Ground-Floor Spaces Coming To West Chelsea.

High Line Nine ~ Nine New Affordable Ground-Floor Spaces Coming To West Chelsea.

Nine new gallery spaces coming to West Chelsea are now pre-leasing. These built ground-floor spaces, 2,500 RSF and under, with high-ceilings, storage and offices, and in a prime area with monthly rents that will encourage small- to mid-sized galleries to come back to West Chelsea. Please contact me or call +1-917-576-2384 for more information on...
2015 Update To "Why West Chelsea Floods".

2015 Update To “Why West Chelsea Floods”.

Since 2013, when I wrote “Why West Chelsea Floods” and presented Aqua-Fence as the best and least-expensive solution for keeping West Chelsea dry, two developments have come up that would prevent the installation of this product around the entire district. Neither are trivial, but both can be overcome. • The first is that FEMA will...
Resilient Art Spaces ~ Protecting Your Gallery From Flooding

Resilient Art Spaces ~ Protecting Your Gallery From Flooding

The Department of City Planning has published an excellent guide of recommendations and actions that art galleries can take to limit, if not prevent altogether, damage from flooding in West Chelsea and elsewhere. You can download it here and I strongly urge it’s liberal distribution. There are no easy answers to the problem of storm-surge...

Alf Naman has put this 5,000 SF lot with 27,500 SF of buildable space on the block for the highest land-deal price yet : $27.000M. Anton just renewed his lease last year, but, as with most leases in West Chelsea, it has a Demo Clause, something to be aware is a very negotiable term when...
2016 Update : 303 Gallery To Go Back To West 21st Street

2016 Update : 303 Gallery To Go Back To West 21st Street

UPDATE to this story January 2, 2016: Lisa Spellman is indeed moving back to West 21st this year as I reported two years ago, and this series of moves on her part was a very smart play. Kudos. It also means that her previous 7,200 SF gallery – with 3,900 SF on the ground floor...

Yancey Richardson Goes Downstairs to 537 W 22nd Street, Continuing A Trend…

Yancey Richardson took Frederick Petzel’s previous 3,100 RSF gallery on June 1, 2013 for a reported $24,000 per mont, or $93/SF, which is below market. Their former 3,000 RSF space upstairs at 535 West 22nd Street is available for a 6 month sublease that can be converted to a 5-10 year direct lease for around...
West Chelsea North ~ Gateway to Hudson Yards

West Chelsea North ~ Gateway to Hudson Yards

West Chelsea North – West 28th, 29th and 30th Streets – is the fastest-growing new gallery area in the West Chelsea Special District, though “fastest-growing” hardly describes it. Actually “new” doesn’t either, since there have been 15 galleries on West 29th since 1998, more than there have been ground floor galleries on West 25th Street...

West Chelsea South ~ Gateway To Meatpacking?

West Chelsea South ~ Gateway To Meatpacking?

Walking around West Chelsea is like gazing at the Milky Way: what you see now is really looking at the past, the future is what’s happening now. This is important to keep in mind if you have a longer-term lease because five years into your lease, West Chelsea will likely look much different than when...

Vicky David Gallery For Sublease ~ 2,200 SF @ $110/SF until 2018

Joining the new subleases in only the first month of 2013, Vicky David Gallery at 514-522 West 23rd Street is available at $20,000 per month asking rent. This 2,200 SF fully-built gallery at $110 per square foot reinforces this pricing as the new normal on West 23rd Street, perhaps higher on West 24th. But its...
