Penthouse Dining Room and Kitchen

One of New York’s award-winning buildings, Chelsea Modern offers luxury real-estate in the city’s finest neighborhood. With its last few remaining units—including duplexes and penthouses—on sale in an eager international market, Chelsea Modern could be a great investment. The hottest place to live in New York has already received wide recognition for its innovative design and it was recently ranked second on Carter Horsley’s Top 10 glass-clad Manhattan buildings. The structure, developed by Robert Gladstone and hailed as one of architect Audrey Matlock’s best, manages to stand out even in an area that is known as the world’s leading site for modern art. The twelve-story condominium located at 447 West 18th Street features an eye-catching glass fa├žade in a revolutionary shifting zigzag pattern that has artists and celebrities flocking to live in one of the last of Chelsea Modern’s 47 designer apartments.

Penthouse Living Room

The building boasts indulgent amenities such as a fitness center complete with showers and steam rooms, a 24-hour fully staffed lobby, cold storage and package rooms, and a private outdoor garden with a reflecting pool, fountain, and rock garden, making it a modern New Yorker’s paradise. Aside from its one- and two-bedroom residences, Chelsea Modern offers unique gallery three-bedroom duplex lofts, which start at $2.4 million and include private street level entrances and gardens—an ideal location for live/work professionals such as artists and gallerists, and exclusive three-bedroom floor-through penthouses with private rooftop terraces starting at just under $4 million. Luxury amenities for the apartments include individually designed kitchens, in-residence washers and dryers, Sub-Zero stainless steel refrigerators, individually controlled heating and cooling systems, private terraces and balconies, and specially designed cabinetry.

Since its creation, the building has received wide recognition and praise, winning a number of awards including the AIA’s Excellence in Architecture award in 2005, the SARA NY Design Award of Honor in 2006, and the CNBC NY Times’ Best Condo in NY, Best High Rise Development in New York, and Best High Rise Architecture in U.S. awards in 2008; as well as housing creative personalities such as fashion designer Christian Cota. The condominium building is within walking distance from the Avenues World School, The High Line Park, and is surrounded by an abundance of chic restaurants, nightlife, and galleries, making Chelsea Modern the ideal residence for the quintessential stylish New Yorker.
