Grid Group files plans to convert garage to 22-unit resi building in Chelsea

Grid Group, on August 2, filed plans for a project to convert a two-story garage to a 22-unit residential building at 142 West 21st Street in Chelsea, Manhattan. Yiannes Einhorn, a principal and one of the founders at the firm, filed the plans. The project will add 64,544 square feet of space to the building, bringing the total size to 80,879 square feet.

This past December, the developer filed a permit application for construction of a 393-unit, 409,961-square-foot mixed-use building at 1440 Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem, Manhattan. That building will have several retail spaces, per the plans.

The Grid Group purchased the 21st Street site about one year ago for $31 million.

The plans call for the change in use and increase in size of the building from a 30-foot tall, two-story garage to a 135-foot tall, 13-story residential building with 22 dwelling units. This was filed with the New York City Department of Buildings under job number M00766992.

The development site spans one tax lot. The lot has a width of 89 feet.

The project is described in the filing as: vertically enlarging and converting existing garage building, and maintaining existing garage use in cellar.

Per the plans, the ground floor of the building will have parking, a lobby, and fitness room. The second floor will have four dwelling units. Floors three through nine will each have three dwelling units per floor, the 10th floor will have one dwelling unit, and floors 11 through 13 will each have three dwelling units per floor. The roof will have terraces and the cellar will have parking.

The architect listed is BKSK Architects.

The property was acquired for $31 million on August 23, 2021.
