New York’s City Council has overwhelmingly approved the plan put forth by Jamestown Properties and STUDIOS to expand the Chelsea Market building. The 290,000-square-foot addition will include office space, allowing media and tech companies already located in the neighborhood to expand and grow. STUDIOS’ design preserves the historic building’s facade and 75% of its retail space. STUDIOS completed a renovation of Chelsea Market’s 9th Avenue facade and entry last year. In addition, Jamestown will also invest in affordable housing units, a youth technology center, and continued work on the High Line.
