Real estate investors Dalan Management Associates and Elion Partners announced a joint venture on Tuesday to acquire eight adjacent buildings in Chelsea for $83 million. The buildings, which run along Eighth Avenue from West 15th to West 16th Streets, contain 102 multi-family units and 10 ground-floor retail spaces known as the Chelsea Collection. Because the property sits directly across from Google headquarters, developers hope to attract workers from the tech giant, Crain’s reported.

The renovated two-bedroom Chelsea loft owned by CNBC co-anchor Sara Eisen (“Squawk on the Street,” “Power Lunch”) and her husband Matthew Levine, head of U.S. Programming at Bloomberg TV, just hit the market for $2.595 million. The 1,200-square-foot condominium is in the Spears Building at 525 West 22nd Street, a former factory built in 1880 and converted in 1996. Twelve-foot beamed ceilings, exposed brick, and polished concrete floors pay homage to the building’s historical roots, while recent updates assure modern comfort and design.

This 2,223-square-foot three-bedroom triplex condominium looks for all the world like a modern townhouse–or, as the listing says, a Tribeca loft or a Hamptons house–in the heart of Chelsea. Topped by a  rooftop terrace and lit by a 300-square-foot skylight, the three-bedroom home is definitely unique for a condo.

Cozy Chelsea co-op with a ’70s vibe asks $975K

250 West 15th Street, Chelsea

This one-bedroom co-op at 250 West 15th Street in Chelsea shows off its considered design and just enough of an of-the-moment look and laid-back 1970s feel for us to almost overlook its compact size and slightly odd layout. The turn-key apartment is priced to sell at less than a million–and a wood-burning fireplace with an exposed brick hearth and drawers galore can’t hurt its chances.

The project is a collaboration between architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, with words and lyrics by acclaimed poets Anne Carson and Claudia Rankine.

The High Line and affordability don’t typically go hand-in-hand, but the lottery opens tomorrow for a new, 160-unit affordable housing project at 425 West 18th Street, less than a block from the High Line. As part of a Bloomberg-era initiative to lease unused NYCHA land to private developers, the 18-story building took over the parking lot of the 1960s Fulton Houses complex. The low- and middle-income availabilities range all the way from $702/month studios to $3,216/month two-bedrooms, and amenities include a laundry room, bike storage, and outdoor space on the roof and first floor.

While it measures just over 1,050 square feet, the design of this Chelsea co-op packs a punch. The beautiful two-bedroom apartment boasts unique touches which fuse an industrial and country aesthetic, from its ten-foot restored pressed ceilings to its original cast-iron columns. The loft, located on the fifth floor of the pre-war building at 107 West 25th Street, has hit the market for $1.79 million.
