Location: New York, New York. Gentrifying former industrial district
On a neglected corner straddling the shoreline of the Hudson River, a new structure rises over the remnants of an abandoned filling station. The smells of pungent asphalt and petrol have disappeared as over 60,000 square feet of new shops and housing have been built. Perched on the boundary of the Chelsea Historic District, the project adds seventy new residences to an area of Manhattan experiencing a boom in popularity.Read more at this project's website.
