    Excavation at the site, and some funny Manhattan Mini Storage ads.


    I like this one on the flip side.

    So is it still an office building? It is kind of a strange place for office. To me this area is better for residence buindings. But whatever as long as it gets off the ground. It is such a cool new building that it is going to look good from the river cruise line... I think.

    Still office. This is being built by the corporation, not a developer, so, unless they back out entirely, there is basically no chance for residential.

    This is a "hip" office area, so a high-tech type of company certainly fits in, especially if they build something like this!

    It's a perfect spot for IAC, a media company. The film and TV production company, Silver Screen Studios, is across the street at Chelsea Piers. The area from 11th to 10 Ave is almost all commercial, with small industry, galleries, and the High Line. Subways are a bit of a walk, but there's great shopping at the Chelsea Market, birthplace of the Oreo.

    I can't wait to see how this will transform into reality.

    This one is moving at a snail's pace - a severely handicapped snail's pace. Makes you wonder how unstable the ground is they are trying to build on.

    Bad news: Nothing above ground.

    Good news: Much construction activity.

    I found out that this area was wetland just north of a Lenape village at what is now Gansevoort peninsula. The site is all mud, and there is a large "groundwater management" tanker truck on the street. They appear to be augering in foundation caissons, so this may take a whille.

    *I aslso noticed that there is a test boring rig in the large lot to the south W17 - W18th. Anyone know what is going on there?

    The area is great for offices and a lot of awesome companies have moved their offices and studios down to Chelsea including the fabulous Chelsea Market complex where NY1 is based as well as The Food Network and Oxygen.

    The ground is very wet since it is so close to the shore. They are using a combination of wellpoints and deep wells. Also, the water that is removed has to be treated by a complex system rarely seen in Manhattan. It suggests that the site was contaminated.

    This one's moving at a snail's pace, there's still nothing above ground.
