Applications for the second batch of affordable apartments at Chelsea29, a 21-story rental building designed by Hill West Architects, are now being accepted (the first batch of 19 launched in May). The luxury tower sits at 221 West 29th Street, conveniently located near Penn Station, the art galleries of Chelsea, and soon-to-be bustling Hudson Yards. Residents will have access to a full-time attended lobby, roof terrace with spots for barbecuing, lounge, and a fitness center. New Yorkers earning 40 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for 15 apartments ranging from $621/month studios to $2,743/month two-bedrooms.

The luxury rentals include spacious layouts and “condominium-quality” features. Apartments boast oversized, soundproof windows that provide an abundance of natural light and incredible city views. The residences include custom solar window shades and Bosch washers and dryers.

According to its website, the building’s facade of stone, metal, and glass was inspired by the area’s industrial lofts. Located in between downtown and uptown hot spots, Chelsea29 is within walking distance to the 1, 2, 4, A, C, E, F, B, and D subway lines.
