Frame Building office conversion completes at 541 West 21st Street in Chelsea, Manhattan

0

Work is finishing on The Frame Building, an eight-story office conversion at 541 West 21st Street in West Chelsea. Designed by Mancini Duffy and Pizzacora and developed by Higher Ground Development, the project includes the interior gutting and facade replacement of the former 65,000 square foot warehouse. Erbo Properties LLC is the owner, JLL is the broker and Cauldwell Wingate is the general contractor for the property, located at the corner of West 21st Street and West Street.

When we last updated in August, the main south elevation was completely stripped of its facade, exposing the old steel-framed superstructure. Work has progressed rapidly since then, and the new shell is largely complete.

Recent photos show the finished look of the new brick facade and perforated rectangular window grille with copper trim. Only the ground floor remains to be completed and unveiled behind the scaffolding of the sidewalk.

The ground floor will be 5,000 square feet, the second floor 8,000 square feet, and floors three through eight will be 9,000 square feet each. Tenants will have access to amenities including a lobby with a rotating modern art gallery, outdoor landscaped roof and rooftop lounge with views of the Hudson River and surrounding Chelsea neighborhood. The offices will feature four south-facing Italian-made windows per floor, exposed and renovated brick walls, polished concrete floors, new bathrooms and air conditioning units.
