Construction is rising on 335 Eighth Avenue, a seven-story residential building in Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by MAG Partners and Mutual Redevelopment Houses, Inc., with financing provided by global holding company Safanad, the structure will span approximately 200,000 square feet and yield 188 rental units in studio to two-bedroom layouts, as well as a 23,000-square-foot Lidl supermarket and additional ground-floor retail space. Thirty percent of the homes will be reserved for affordable housing. The property is located at the corner of Eighth Avenue and West 26th Street within the Penn South affordable housing cooperative, officially known as Mutual Redevelopment Houses.

The reinforced concrete superstructure has begun to rise above street level since our last update in late January, when foundations were still being formed. Recent photos show the building standing four stories high with a dense network of scaffolding and formwork aiding in the settling of the latest levels. Given its modest height, 335 Eighth Avenue could likely top out before the end of spring, followed by the installation of the brick fa├žade later in the year.
