This cute little studio at 410 West 23rd Street in Chelsea has a lot going for it in the looks department thanks to a considered renovation that kept an eye on form as well as function. A massive dressing room/closet makes sure your living space stays uncluttered, and a petite entry foyer adds class to the one-room-living experience.
eBay executive and Fab.com shopping site founder Bradford Shellhammer raced back from a vacation weekend to tour the Chelsea home he’s now selling for $2.2 million. He’s looking for more space that’s “more about texture than color,” the New York Post reports. In the years he’s been a resident at 575 Sixth Avenue, Shellhammer has transformed the Chelsea loft into a Memphis-style-meets-mid-century-modern masterpiece in sherbet hues, complete with art by Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. Refinery29 once called the home “The Most Colorful Apartment We’ve EVER seen.”
The architect’s signature curves and organic indoor and outdoor architecture made the late Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street 6sqft’s Building of the Year. Now, closings have begun in the stunning Chelsea condo, starting with a pair of two bedroom units. Residences 9, which sold for $6 million, and 14, which sold for $6.2 million, are 2,147-square-foot two-bedroom homes with private balconies.
Back in January 6sqft reported that the 25-by-85-foot landmarked Greek Revival townhouse at 436 West 20th Street–with 9,000 square feet of interior space and a fully-stacked celebrity pedigree–had been re-listed for $19.75 million. The home, whose residents have included Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Glenn Close, Courtney Love and Olivier Sarkozy, has been on the market since 2010. Returning this summer for $18.75 million, the Chelsea home’s five-unit configuration might prove daunting to prospective buyers, though a thorough structural and aesthetic renovation in 2013 plus the promise of almost $600,000 a year in rent certainly sound like positive attributes.
When Meryl Streep is your mother it’s hard not to get recognized, but actress Mamie Gummer has earned herself plenty of accolades in her own right, from starring in “Emily Owens, M.D.” and having a title role in “The Good Wife” to winning a Drama Desk Award for her appearance in the play “Ugly Lies the Bone.” True to her under-the-radar persona, Gummer’s Chelsea apartment is simple yet classy, and according to LL NYC it’s just hit the market for $1.8 million.
Fashion designer Reem Acra is selling her 3,200-square-foot spread in the Chelsea Atelier at 245 Seventh Avenue, Luxury Listings reports. The Lebanese-born designer, who made news for having created First Lady Melania Trump’s inauguration-eve dinner gown, purchased two apartments in the building nearly two decades ago. The sprawling, loft-like space, asking $5.5 million, features dramatic art on the walls and ceilings including a wall-sized photo featuring a model wearing one of the designer’s wedding dresses that was used in an ad campaign.
This pint-sized penthouse perched atop an elevator building at 368 West 23rd Street in West Chelsea manages to pack everything you need into two levels of renovated, sun-filled space and look good doing it. Asking $1.6 million, the one-bedroom co-op is freshly renovated with two full baths, new hardwood floors, central air conditioning, a wood-burning fireplace, and a washer/dryer. But it’s the impressive expanses of terrace that make the biggest impression.
Nearly a year after first hitting the market for $9.75 million, Kelsey Grammer’s condo at Jean Nouvel‘s glassy 100 Eleventh Avenue in west Chelsea has gone into contract, reports the Wall Street Journal. But despite the fact that that the listing showcased his piano from the set of “Frasier” and the impressive 100 feet of massive windows providing Hudson River and skyline views, the selling price came in at just under $8 million (the price was reduced to $8.95 million in March).
Last we checked in at the beginning of the year, the $350 million transformation of Pier 57, aka “SuperPier,” was making progress with its canted glass panels fully installed. Wednesday, co-developers RXR Realty and Young Woo & Associates held an event to mark the 450,000-square-foot development’s topping out, which came after 2,600 tons of structural steel were installed, 4,000 yards of concrete poured, and a 60,000-square-foot curtain wall built. The project will include 250,000 square feet of offices for Google, a 100,000-square-foot food market from Anthony Bourdain, and an elevated two-acre park with a rooftop movie and performance amphitheater to be used for Tribeca Film Festival screenings. This construction milestone comes ahead of an anticipated summer 2018 opening.
This cozy and chic one-bedroom co-op at 221 West 21st Street on a quiet and leafy Chelsea block may not boast a lot of square feet, but its well-curated design makes it feel more like a home than a tiny Manhattan apartment. It’s a success story we’ve seen over and over again; in this particular case, the home’s small-space makeover was the inspiration for successful designer-client matchup service Homepolish–the homeowner, a coder for Buzzfeed, went on to partner with the interior design company’s founder to help others find smart design solutions. The fifth-floor apartment is currently asking $750,000.
