Luxury condominium in West Chelsea / Completion 1988
This high-rise condominium located in West Chelsea has a mixture of flats, penthouse and garden duplex units. The building is set back to provide a residential front yard buffer to the street, while the facade references adjacent warehouse buildings on West 19th Street. Most of the 70 units have private balconies or terraces, and a common roof terrace offers excellent views of Lower Manhattan. The development maximizes usable floor within the zoning envelope through careful planning, which allowed for competitive sales prices at a time when the market was saturated. Most of the units sold within two weeks of the opening.
