The Chelsea neighborhood is the perfect symmetry between commercial and residential and old versus new architecture. Many of the old factory and meat packing buildings have been converted to address the tech companies, small businesses and housing demands. The area has become a destination for art, food, fashion, tech and finance industries. The expansion of Chelsea was spurred by rezoning certain areas and buildings for residential use, the beautification of the West Side Highway parks, Chelsea Piers sporting complex, the old Nabisco building transformed to Chelsea Market, the abandoned above ground rail road has become the celebrated High-Line park, and then the galleries began to come; currently over 300. The neighborhood has the most celebrated iconic starchitects sprinkled along the Highline and due to a large-scale 28 acres mixed-use redevelopment program Hudson Yards a 28 acre a new world is being built over the West Side Rail Yard along 10th and 12th Avenue. Hudson Yards will comprise 16 skyscrapers containing new offices, residential and retail spaces including New York’s first Neiman Marcus.
