The Ohm - 312 11th Avenue
Given that The Ohm was designed by architect Stephen B. Jacobs, the man responsible for the design of the Gansevoort Hotels in New York and Miami Beach, it’s little surprise that this building feels more like a hot spot boutique hotel then it does a condo building. Decked out with [...]
The Highline was built in the 1930’s as part of the massive infrastructure project called the West Side Improvement. Tenth Avenue had developed a reputation as Death Alley because of the monumental amount of traffic it attracted and the consequent fatalities. Freight trains mingled with street level traffic. Public safety required that men on horses [...]
Port 10 – 303 10th Avenue
Playing up its Chelsea heritage by incorporating its original façade of iron spot brick into its modern design, this luxury rental has a vibrant, young feel to it. All of the building’s units feature new, state-of-the-art appliances and stunning views abound (including ones looking out onto the High Line, the [...]
The curvy lines on the upper levels of 456 West 19th Street are said to “mirror the waves of the nearby Hudson River.” The base of the exterior is black brick, which contrasts nicely with the rippling balconies. Aside from the beautiful architecture, the units themselves are very impressive. There are 22 apartments in total, all duplexes, ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet. Each apartment features a double-height ceiling (20 feet tall), open floor plan, and energy-efficient UV-blocking glass multi-paned steel windows.
With lots of activity and construction in West Chelsea near the High Line, +Art is a unique project for a few different reasons. With 189 homes, it’s a large new development, with both condo and rental units. The main entrance will be on 540 West 28th Street, and renters have a separate entrance at 537 West 27th Street. This building will offer a fresh industrial look with sleek surfaces and steel fixtures. Kitchens will include Subzero refrigerators, Bertazzoni ranges, white Corian countertops and more. In keeping with its name, +Art will include both a curated lobby and something they’re calling an Art Yard, reflective of the wonderful artistic culture in Chelsea. Additional amenities include a fitness center, attended lobby, roof terrace, Abigail Michaels concierge on site, and 421-A Tax Abatement. The city’s newest park, the High Line, is just a short walk away.
Owners of the popular Five Points restaurant, Vicki Freeman and her chef-husband Marc Meyer, set out to open a “farm-to-table” restaurant dependent solely on sustainable ingredients. The debate of whether organic ingredients taste better can finally come to rest at this Chelsea outpost where the menu changes daily based on freshness.
The lower half of this 14-story building features wrapped wood facades while the rest is covered in light-colored masonry, achieving an asymmetrical yet elegantly modern style. When the sales office opened in the fall of 2004, all 22 condominium units of Vesta 24 were taken off the market in less than two days, surely a reflection of West Chelsea’s high desirability and the building’s distinctiveness. Soon after, Eileen Spinola, the head of residential development for the Real Estate Board of New York, claimed Vesta 24 to be “one of the first big public recognitions that the Far West Side is profitable for investors.”
New condo construction will not come to a halt if Gary Barnett has anything to do with it. The president of Extell Development has added another Chelsea address to his list of holes in the ground (see: also 19 West 20th St). He plans to build a 13-story, 54 unit condominium building at 147 West 21st Street, and has signed on SLCE architect, James Davidson, to conjure up plans for the ghost of a sliver space that once was. There is speculation whether Extell has also purchased the 3 adjoining buildings with the hopes of combining them into a sweeter package. One thing is certain however, its location next door to Casa, a top-quality rental building, will ensure Extell provides the competitive edge needed from its neighbors.
If you’re shocked to see how many combined addresses make up this new construction, don’t be. Extell Developers, known for making bold moves on the condominium front, has taken over the block with its efforts to build a 772 ft, 61-story condominium building. The once warehouse is still warehouse-like at first glance of the exterior. Or maybe it has yet to outgrow the area which is largely composed of factories and a whole lot of nothingness except for the Javitz Center, a couple blocks north. We have every faith that an Extell property has the influence to transform the neighborhood byway of simply attracting high-end tenants. We expect the renovation for this palatial, skyscraping condo building will be ready to go before the end of the year.
Remember when the term “artist’s loft” referred to an old broken down warehouse space where the rent was less than the amount of rats scurrying about? 650 Sixth Ave, located in central Chelsea, breathes new, modern, expensive life into our perception of the artist loft. The lobby, with its 16 ft ceilings and all-white backdrop, doubles as an art installation with an aluminum tree-like cutout sculpture at its center. The Jack Shaiman Gallery has been commissioned to curate the lobby’s art gallery. The 7-floor building had a page in the art world long before its conversion into 67 condos because of its landmark status as a Beaux-Arts building.
This Chelsea pre-war townhouse built in 1910 caught our attention the moment we noticed it being gutted for renovation. So far, the beautiful copper green moldings on the exterior have stayed in tact and the only thing being revamped appears to be the inside. Prior to the construction, the townhouse was home to two families, but now the destiny of the three-story building is less transparent. While the property is certainly suitable for one family, there is also the potential to add floors or extend through the garden, making it profitable to rent out as separate apartments.
The Heywood is an attractive pre-war building made of solid concrete that used to be a printing house for decades after its erection in 1913. Now, the 11-story building houses 50 loft-style condominium apartments with 4 ground floor duplexes.
If your hobbies include frequenting the art galleries home to Chelsea, consider the convenience of living above one. The Eagle Warehouse, located on one of the most charming cobblestone blocks in the area, shares space with the Sonnabend Gallery in addition to neighboring Chelsea Piers and the much anticipated high line. The 17-unit boutique condominium in the heart of West Chelsea’s art scene is a refreshing intersection between old and new. The classic New York red brick exterior pays homage to the warehouse it was converted from, but boasts sleek and modern interiors where it counts—in the home. With 11’ wood-beamed ceilings, oversized tilt and turn picture windows, and custom built-in bookshelves, The Eagle Warehouse succeeds in creating Zen-like sanctuaries of sizable proportion. The property lacks some of the frills of other luxury condominiums in the area, like massage rooms and sun decks, which may contribute to its lower price point compared to its neighbors, but the luminous interiors rival those double its price. Those looking to buy one of Eagle Warehouse’s condos may be pleased to know the prices have fallen almost 10% since its opening.
The Paradigm building might just be the model of greatness it proclaims to be. In 2004, the brand new condominium welcomed its occupants with a rare gift among new condominium buildings: a key-operated elevator which ensures full-floor privacy for its residents. The building’s sleek façade boasts steel gray granite further emphasized by eight-foot windows. The mirrored glass lining compliments the building’s stonework and that of its immediate neighbors, which sandwich The Paradigm, making it appear like a sliver of modernity in the midst of old world New York. Marvin H. Meltzer, the architect, was aware of the surrounding pre-war buildings and designed the modern building with them in mind. “You design something contemporary that reinforces the 1800 buildings, making its design stronger through contrast,” says Meltzer. The attention to design extends to the interiors with amenities like over-sized bathtubs, steam showers and entirely stainless steel appliances. The outdoor options are plentiful with access to a shared roof space as well as the private terraces or balconies attached to each unit.
Everything about this modern 11-story boutique condominium relates to dance in some form or another. Its name, The Dance Building, references the culturally significant Dance Theater Workshop situated on the bottom two floors of the building. The apartments themselves are marked by an attention to free space through unpartitioned, column-free open layouts that range from 2,158 to 2,675 square feet for two-bedroom to four-bedroom condos. It’s obvious that architect Ed Rawlings had dance on his mind when designing this “flexible” space, making it easy to stretch along the 53-foot-long windows that line the wall and connect to private balconies. The lofts boast refined details that distinguish these apartments from the rest, such as a chef’s kitchen lavishly equipped with Builthaup, Subzero, and Bosch appliances; marble finished master bathrooms, insulated double walls, insulated wide-strip maple hardwood floors, and high-speed data connectivity. If you wish to take the dancing outside, the building even offers a recreational rooftop for its residents. And if you’d rather watch others move and sway, simply take a stroll down the block to the Joyce Theater, famous for its modern dancing aficionados.
The Steiner Building on West 17th Street is proof that there are still condominium converted pre-war buildings that have resisted becoming the icy modern structures ubiquitous to Chelsea. Built in 1905 and transformed in 1998, the nine-story building boasts an elegant limestone base, while the rest of the façade is lined with white brick, a combination worthy of classic admirers. The corniced stone exterior mimics that of a Renaissance-style Italian palazzo, making the centrally located Steiner Building solid in stature and handsome in appearance. Its added bonus comes in the form of a well-kept D’Agostino’s supermarket conveniently occupying the first-floor of the building. Such retail space makes it impossible to justify pricey online grocery sprees. The 32 apartments have ample fenestration to breed light, just enough to get an illuminated glimpse of the charmed street it sits on. The landscaped sidewalks make for a fine block, not to mention its close proximity to the famous Joyce Theater just two blocks away.
It’s not often that a developer names its baby after those who came before it, but The Porter House, a luxury condominium on West 15th St, borrowed its name from the term for a choice cut of beef in honor of its meat-packing district locale and the famed Homestead Steakhouse that shares its corner. Thanks to architect Gregg Pasquarelli, the once Renaissance Revival warehouse was expanded upwards through the installation of an avant-garde condominium structure that sits atop a yellow-brick industrial building below it. Neither structure has anything to do with the other, yet neither does its neighboring designer, Alexander Mcqueen, and the once bloody cobble stone street it sits on. The contrast is dramatic, as is the effect of the vertical lighting units patterned throughout the building. The funky apartment building is more than just a home to its residents. New York City art historians consider the property a breakthrough in post-modern architecture. The “prime” location of The Porter House and its unique façade make this condominium a savvy investment for those looking to live in one of the trendiest spots in Manhattan. The building features 5 one-bedroom apartments, 13 two-bedroom apartments, 3 three-bedroom apartments, and for its more high rolling suitors, 1 four-bedroom duplex with a private deck.
One of the largest residential conversions of a commercial property in Chelsea, the Chelsea Mercantile evolved from a factory in 1906, to four pre-war buildings which were gutted and adapted in 2000 into condominiums by Rockrose and Avinash K. Malhotra and Gruzen Samton. The building’s 354 apartments have 108 different layouts, creating a small building feel with large building amenities. Its impressively restored Rotunda Lobby and its fresh artistic aesthetic are an indication of the kind of lifestyle residents can expect.
The Chelsea Club is a small, intimate collection of 42 designer residences by renowned Karl Fischer Architects and Andres Escobar. Boasting an impressive array of amenities, the building finds itself in the nexus of West Chelsea’s Gallery District. It is just steps away the city’s trendiest restaurants including Buddakan, Craft Steak, and Morimoto. From a recreational standpoint, residents can enjoy all that Chelsea Piers, Hudson River Park, and the new High Line Park have to offer.
A lavish landmark building from 1887, the O’Neill Building is a premier and majestic loft conversion by the most discerning of standards.

Perfectly situated just steps from Chelsea’s Gallery District, Madison Square Park, and Union Square, residents can enjoy their a one-of-a-kind lifestyle both inside and outside of the O’Neill Building.
Iron Chef meets NYC at Masaharu Morimoto’s Philadelphia transplant in the heart of the Meatpacking / HighLine district. This 12,000-square-foot restaurant is bustling, visually intriguing and as much of a conversation piece as the food it serves. Despite its buzz from Iron Chef fans and Japanese foodies, reservations aren’t too difficult to get your hands on. You’ll only need about one week of forethought to score a table for Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
For one of the more delectable Italian dining experiences in Chelsea, Del Posto is sure to please the choosiest of foodies. Located next door to other Meatpacking culinary favorites like Morimoto and CraftSteak, Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich have their work cut out for them.

Grosvenor House is a condominium building in Chelsea that offers the perks of a full-service building, without being over-the-top.

Amenities include a 24 hour concierge, live-in super, laundry, and a fitness room. A few unique features: private storage lockers can be rented out by tenants and there’s a planted roof deck with Empire State Building views.
October 15th 1985 was a crisp glorious fall evening and I had just appeared in my very first play in New York , Bobby Moresco’s “Half Deserted Streets.” Bobby would go on to win an Oscar for co-writing “Crash” and I am still in the streets of New York doing what I love best – eating! And that’s what Manganaro’s Hero boy is all about - New York history and memories.
Though many new developments boast outdoor space, only one can take pride in a back yard that’s over 100 years old: the Chelsea Enclave. This luxury condop development is uniquely built on Chelsea’s historic General Theological Seminary grounds, and will share the central garden with the Seminary: quite a view for some lucky buyers. Situated between West 20th and 21st on Ninth Avenue, the building benefits from the quiet charm of this little-known area of Chelsea and the eccentricity of Highline starchitecture only minutes away.
This loft building hidden among a stretch of wholesale jewelers and Tupac T-shirts vendors is perfect for the anti-cookie cutter Chelsea crowd. Zoned as a live-work space, this renovated loft offers an industrial vision of New York that is fast disappearing.
Chelsea is pleased to inaugurate a fourth member into its growing club of condo quality rentals: The Echelon. Alongside Casa, the Chelsea Landmark and the Caledonia, the Echelon is a truly welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Its floor plans are spacious and light-filled, particularly once you clear the 8th floor. All apartments offer washers and dryers in the residences, and uniquely offer carpeted bedrooms, for those of you who want some variety in terms of flooring. Those lucky enough to live in the Echelon’s larger units will enjoy wine coolers, walk-in closets and large terraces.
The Verde Chelsea is home to thirty-three homes on 22nd Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues. Due to its unique design which incorporates multiple gardens terraces that overflow with plants in Spring and Summer months, the building has dubbed itself the “hanging gardens of 22nd street.”
Joining the plethora of new developments along Chelsea’s 6th to 7th Avenue corridor (Clement Clarke, Indigo 21, etc.), Prima boasts 36 residential units contained within its 13-story brick and glass structure, reminiscent of Avant Chelsea.
The façade of the Onyx doesn’t fail to impress when illuminated at night - after dark, its black metallic panels suspended from the structure are at their most dramatic. The building’s name is derived from the sleek black granite and steel bolts that envelop its exterior as designed by the FX Fowle architecture firm.
Situated in between several well established neighborhood, Indigo 21 finds itself at the crossroads of pockets of activity between 6th and 7th Avenues. Its zinc and aluminum façade is unique and helps it stand out from between its two neighboring low rise buildings.

Blocks from Union Square Park and within walking distance of Washington Square Park, it is at once in the middle of everything and off the overly beaten path.
Originally a brick garage built in 1925, this new condo building represents an interesting mix of old and new: the first three floors of the building are from the original structure and from the fourth floor up is new construction. Located on 17th street between 7th and 8th avenues, 246 West 17th is more calm and relaxed than its Chelsea counterparts, preferring function over fashion and no over-the-top amenities. As such, it fits right in to the block rather than trying to transform it.
The Clement Clarke is a unique 12-story building among the new condo developments. Located in the heart of Chelsea between 6th and 7th avenues, it distinguishes itself through its lower key and private nature. Though its exterior was restored to maintain its old New York charm, its interior boasts all the amenities and details of a brand new condominium.
The designers of 133 West 22nd have transformed an old walk-up apartment building into 100 luxury residences for those who grasp the neighborhood ’s future promise. The building boasts one of the best amenities package in the area, while skipping the pretension that it may otherwise attract. With an outdoor pool, a beautiful rooftop, on-site parking and a fitness center, the building truly caters to its residents’ desires.
I have to say that out of all of the management companies I deal with, Stonehenge is tops. The meticulous care they put into their properties, the flexibility with which they work with their tenants and brokers, along with the pride they take with their product makes them one of Manhattans top rental choices. And The Olivia is a perfect reflection of their philosophy.
The Highline 519 is one of the early condo projects in the “High Line Park” area, fairly close to many newcomers off 10th or 11th avenues in the high teens and 20’s. Being one of the first, it lacks the stellar amenities that younger developments bring to the table, which in turn, makes its monthly common charges lower than most. The building features a glass façade with an unusual metal design that scales the building.
Loft 25’s nine stories cross over two buildings: a brick-clad one that houses true, older lofts and garden duplexes, and a glass-adorned one that’s home to smaller one-bedroom units. The lofts are majestic with high ceilings and industrial character, while the one-bedrooms have lower ceilings but full-floor windows, with a more modern personality.
The intense light bouncing off uninterrupted steel walls makes 245 Tenth Avenue immediately conspicuous to the naked eye (or to those wearing shades). Its facade of glass and stainless steel expands outwards and upwards, a mirror of West Chelsea’s changing landscape.
200 Eleventh Avenue is a majestic steel tower rising from a gunmetal glazed terracotta base that exudes a unique level of craftsmanship, warmth and character. Its 16 limited-edition homes range from simplexes with terraces to duplexes, and penthouses, with a corresponding spectrum of square footage: 1,300 to 3,500 square feet. The units feel bright and spacious due to the double-height ceilings in most units and an abundance of glass.
Live at The Capitol and you’ll enjoy what very few Manhattanites have…a backyard. The beautifully landscaped and furnished courtyard of The Capitol spans from 26th to 27th Street and is situated outside of the Antique Café. Back inside, apartments have beautifully finished parquet floors. While the layouts differ a bit, all apartments have an open floorplan.
The Westminster is a true find in the Chelsea area. All apartments have beautifully finished parquet floors and in unit washer/dryers. Kitchens feature granite countertops, crisp white appliances, sleek white cabinets with frosted glass fronts, and open shelving. The one- and two-bedroom floorplans have pass-thru kitchens and the open shelving serves as a functional, yet decorative touch. You will find two shades of marble tile in the bathrooms with a lovely pedestal sink. But perhaps the best feature in these apartments is the closets.
When people think of Chelsea, many now think of high-rise living due to the transformation the area has seen. Yet there are still a few unique places to live for the townhouse lover in you. This building offers a mere ten apartments, most of which are studios boasting high ceilings and decorative fireplaces. Its personality matches that of the neighborhood: quaint, quiet, and charming. These apartments move very quickly, not only because of the limited inventory of the building, but also because of the double positives of location and transportation.
For those seeking no compromise between value and space, this little building is the perfect fit. The property features loft-like studios, with high ceilings and sleeping lofts, giving residents a nice separation between their living and sleeping spaces. The windows in the building are expansive and provide views onto some of the quaintest blocks of Chelsea and Union Square. Those lucky enough to live on the first floor, usually not a plus in most buildings, enjoy triplex apartments and enviable outdoor space. It’s easy to see why these are some of the fastest moving apartments in the neighborhood!
Hidden on one of the quaintest, quietest blocks in prime Chelsea / Union Square is a very interesting building: half walk-up and half elevator. In the walk-up section, you will find loft-like duplexes that offer a true New York feel. The front part of the building offers great value for those who prefer simplexes. No wonder these are some of the fastest moving apartments in the neighborhood! The accessibility to all major subway lines makes this location largely unbeatable. At your doorstep is Union Square and its farmers’ market, minutes away are Chelsea’s best galleries, and a few short blocks are a great walk home from Flatiron’s culinary treats.
Opened in 1997, the Chelsea Market has been formed inside what used to be the old New York Nabisco factory. Food, flowers, kitchen supplies and dining occupy the ground-level space, while offices for companies such as Oxygen and the Food Network make up the upper floors.

This building offers a split floorplan in the two-bedroom units with a bedroom on either side of the living room, a great feature for added privacy. The pass-thru kitchen is equipped with bright white appliances and boasts granite countertops. You are guaranteed to enjoy many meals at the handsome breakfast bar. There is ample closet space in the good size rooms here and many apartments have a terrace off of the living room for a bit of personal outdoor space.
The Archstone offers seven different floorplans, making it the ideal choice if you like options. You will notice the light bamboo plank floors as soon as you walk into the foyer. That’s right…the foyer. (The one and two-bedroom units have an ample entryway providing a lovely way for you to great your guests.)
Upon entering the lobby, you will find this beautiful building succeeds in being sleek and modern, yet warm and inviting at the same time. Apartments feature light wood plank flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows, which flood the units with light. Add to that the nice open floor plan and the attributes “light and airy” will be redefined.

Apartments feature an open kitchen that is great for entertaining. Beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and dishwasher, will inspire you to reach new heights of gourmet cooking.

Two closets with double hanging rods and built in shelving make these units a dream.

Perhaps one of the most well known buildings in the area, the Vanguard Chelsea simultaneously provides luxury living and a homey atmosphere. With the front entrance located on 24th Street you will be in the middle of the Manhattan hustle and bustle without it literally being on your doorstep.
From the moment you walk into the sleek, modern lobby of the Chelsea Landmark, it will secure a spot on your most-wanted list.

Welcome to one of the truly innovative and award-winning condo homes leading the renaissance of New York’s West Chelsea district: 459 West 18th.
Designed and developed by award winning Della Valle Bernheimer, these condo residences contribute to the impressive showcase of exciting and leading-edge residential architecture of Far West Chelsea. Its striking geometric black and white exterior, juxtaposed against the subtleness of its full floor residences, pays tribute to Chelsea’s rich artistic character (the neighborhood boasts the highest concentration of art galleries in the world).
Pronounced Eve, the Yves Chelsea is one of the most unique residential buildings along the 7th Avenue corridor. Its all-glass tiered façade is an appropriate reflection of the Chelsea neighborhood: contemporary, trendy and eye-catching.
The façade of his 11-story luxury condo dazzles with blue glazed terracotta and floor-to-ceiling glass. With a maximum of three units per floor, it is one of the quainter new developments in West Chelsea, though not with respect to its spacious apartment layouts.
The Avant Chelsea is one of the smaller luxury condo buildings in Chelsea neighborhood, likely its greatest appeal. With approximately two units per floor, all two-bedrooms, it has a neighborly feel that complements the area’s personality quite well. This may well be due to the townhouse experience of 1100 Architect who designed the building, further adding to the quaintness of Avant and its intelligent layouts. For those who want to dwell in modern, unique settings, while still seeking the personal feeling of knowing your neighbors, this may well be the building for you.

This luxurious hybrid building (including condo owners and renters) was one of the first luxury residential buildings to mark what is now known as West Chelsea.
450 West 17th Street is a perfect balance between serenity and the urban energy that the West Chelsea neighborhood is well known for. The Caledonia is one of a kind, built along The Highline — which will soon be a beautiful public elevated park.
Chelsea Stratus rises into the sky unlike any other building in the area.
