The blocks on the northern end of West Chelsea near the High Line, already bubbling with activity and construction, have a new friend on the way: construction has just started on a new condo/rental combo at 540 West 28th Street. It's a big one, with 189 units and a second entry for renters at 537 West 27th. They're calling it +Art, and in keeping with its name and the neighborhood gallery scene, it'll include both a curated lobby and something they call an Art Yard. The art doesn't stop there! Architects GF55 Partners have designed the building "in deference to the artistic narrative of Chelsea's most important artists, architects, and poets." And then there's the slogan: "+ Art fuels the New York life you should be living." Maybe that means buying less of those pricey energy drinks. No matter, there's even a very artistic 421-A Tax Abatement. Thoughtful, indeed.
