Great location in the heart of Chelsea, steps from restaurants, the 23rd Street shopping promenade and many subway lines. Highly sought after hi-rise with amenity packed services. Many apartments have outdoor space.
The Not So Good
The kitchens look dated. It can be quite busy in this bustling area.
The Bottom Line
Whether you are a buyer or investor, Chelsea Stratus has all the right elements to make it a great investment. Highly recommend adding this to your property tour, but you may want to consider updating some of the finishes down the road.
The 199 condo units at Chelsea Stratus are as modern as the building which holds them. Although the apartments are not uniformly appointed, the majority have kitchens featuring Macassar ebony cabinets with stainless steel appliances. Wide windows in the kitchens let in plenty of light, while many homes feature balconies. Bathrooms have Wenge wood vanities and separate bathtubs and showers, a nice touch.
The building rises 40 stories into the stratosphere and was the tallest tower built in Chelsea at the time it was constructed. Upon entering, residents are greeted by a slate-walled lobby with an indoor waterfall and a full-time doorman. Amenities include a concierge, fitness center, residents’ lounge, basketball court, roof deck, dining area, and dog run.
Living at Chelsea Stratus means being within walking distance of Madison Square Park and the Flatiron District, as well as numerous public transportation options. Residents have access to a multitude of great restaurants and shopping, including Eataly, the mega food market nearby. Located centrally in Manhattan, the building provides easy access to the rest of the city.
