Construction has started at Michael Shvo’s condo project at 239 Tenth Avenue.

Shvo partnered with Victor Homes to buy the Getty gas station at West 24th Street for $23.5 million. The property traded for almost $800 per buildable square foot, a record for a development site in Chelsea, the Wall Street Journal reported.

In September, Shvo turned the site into public art of the fleecy kind — “Sheep Station,” by surrealist Francois-Xavier Lalanne, featured epoxy stone and bronze sheep, pictured below:

Now, the white picket fence is no more, and the livestock have left for greener pastures. But fret not — the condo project will be “something that will combine art, luxury residential, design and architecture,” Shvo told the Journal. “We will have river views and we will be looking over the High Line.”
