Striking-angular blue and white glass facade, stands out in the starchitect neighborhood spanning the length of the High Line. Nice large layouts with a lofty feel.
The Not So Good
The interior finishes are a little let down from the grandiose exterior.
The Bottom Line
Chelsea Modern stands out from the other properties in the neighborhood; it's one of those people can easily identify with in a fantastic location. However with lackluster interiors, you may want to consider updating it to match the outside.
Flexible spaces and plenty of light are the hallmarks of this impressive structure in Chelsea. Residences feature sliding walls that open up spaces and lend more flexibility to the living environment. Kitchens are furnished with Miele appliances and Sub-Zero refrigerators, while bathrooms feature Philippe Starck soaking tubs, marble-countered walnut vanities and French limestone floors.
“Wow!” is one way to describe this 12-story glass boutique building. Behind the bands of blue glass set in a zigzag pattern are 47 units. Amenities that complement the beauty of the award-winning building include a full-time doorman, concierge, live-in super, fitness center, bicycle storage, and a rooftop deck that features a landscaped garden.
Located near the High Line, Chelsea Modern enjoys direct access to a natural setting for outdoor activities. For those that enjoy cultural and artistic offerings, West Chelsea offers a multitude of galleries and museums throughout its streets. And don’t forget about Chelsea Market, a great place for a stroll, to eat a unique meal or buy ingredients for cooking at home.
