Located on 30th Street and 11th Avenue, Ohm was the first residential project along the northern spur of the Highline at the Hudson Yards. The development totals 360,000 sf and includes 288 market-rate, and 80 affordable housing units. The neighborhood had been known for its industrial buildings, nightclubs and art galleries, but since Ohm's lease-up, a new residential neighborhood has emerged.
Architect Stephen B. Jacobs and interior designer Andi Pepper created a design that combines efficient residential layouts with exceptional amenity spaces. The residential and common area finishes, worthy of the trendiest of New York luxury hotels, were designed to target young, sophisticated renters. A 5,000 sf performance venue in the lobby features monthly concerts provided by The Knitting Factory; 20,000 sf of amenities include a resident's lounge, media center, fireplace, and billiards; a 4,100 sq. ft. garden terrace; a video game arcade; a 2,100 sf fitness center overlooking the Highline and a landscaped sky deck with green features and spectacular city views. Ohm also extends its lifestyle amenities through partnerships with neighboring organizations including the Highline and Chelsea Piers. Both offer special promotions for residents. Ohm provides monthly movie screenings in the lobby and free shuttle service to Penn Station. Retail tenants include a 24-hour gourmet café and 181-space parking garage.
Ohm was the first to take advantage of the High Line Transfer Corridor square footage created as part of West Chelsea's rezoning, as well as HPD’s on-site inclusionary housing bonus. Since it had to meet the requirements of both the 80/20 program and the inclusionary housing program, we worked in partnership with both HFA and HPD to coordinate agency requirements that at times conflicted with each other.
