During much of its development, New York City catered to families by providing comfortable living space in its Upper East Side and Upper West Side neighborhoods. But with recent construction, change is coming to where families will be able to live in the Midtown to Lower Manhattan as developer Tamarkin Co. unveils news that they’re in current development of a condominium located in West Chelsea.

Residing at 508 West 24th Street, the new 10 story building will have 15 units, of which 14 will contain three bedrooms. A more than desired living space for families wanting to move further into the heart of the city. With attractions like the High Line Park and the Chelsea Piers a short walk away, you start realizing just how much this area of the city can create the perfect environment for families.

Opening the neighborhood to a wider group of potential dwellers, in particular, bigger families, can bring a more homely feel to its vicinity. In a sense, nurturing a greater sense of community between its residents. The building is expected to be completed in June 2014.

Like minded developers such as Adam Gordon Holdings and HFZ Capital hope to cater to families and single residents alike by giving the market properties that fit the wants and needs of both parties. Both developers have recently finished construction of residential properties located at 560 West 24th Street and West 19th Street respectively.

“It is going to bring something on the order of 1,200 children and their parents into the area, which will drive very significant sales.” - Adam Gordon, President of Adam Gordon Holdings.

The possible benefits of including families in the future of New York City’s developing residential areas are infinite. But think about the cohesion it will foster, and as Mr. Gordon stated, the area will see a huge boost in sales. Ideas like these are what will help New York City flourish further. Creating the perfect balance between residential and commercial space only improves the image of New York City being a dream metropolis. And a dream it is becoming indeed.
