A bright and modern 2 bedroom loft apartment, with floor to ceiling windows providing unparalleled High Line and city views, which covers the entire 12th floor of the award winning HL23 building in West Chelsea, New York.
This is the highest simplex in the building which is located at the nexus of 23rd Street and 10th Avenue. The building rises up from the High Line as a curtain wall of glass and stainless steel panels hung on a complex cantilevered steel frame. It boasts a LEED certified Gold rating for its use of green power and eco efficient appliances and fixtures.
The lobby of the building is at the base of the 23rd Street entrance to the High Line Park. From here, you enter the private keyed lift which opens directly into each of the 11 residences.
This striking apartment has over 2,600 sq ft (244 sqm) of living space in its open plan interior. There is a large entrance foyer, 2 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and an expansive south facing living and dining room that flows into the cook’s kitchen, set against an exciting backdrop of panoramic views of the High Line gardens to the south and north and London Terrace and historic Chelsea to the east.
No two floors are alike at HL23. The public living areas of this apartment boast nearly 11 ft ceilings, 12 ft wide plank solid oak floors with two layers of sound insulation and sloping floor to ceiling walls of low iron glass with motorised windows for easy opening. On the western wall of the living room is a wood burning fireplace with Pierre de Cluny stone surround and on the eastern wall, the Valcucine fully fitted kitchen. There is a large dining area surrounded with banquettes, concealed sound system and a charging station created from what was originally a third bedroom.
The master bedroom occupies the entire northern end of the residence and has amazing views up the High Line to north Chelsea and midtown beyond. The second bedroom has Empire State Building views to the east.
Motorised shades, a multi zoned heating/cooling system and unique lighting fixtures designed by Linnaea Tillet are throughout the residence.
The building’s amenities include a full time doorman, fitness centre fitted with TechnoGym equipment, weights and space for yoga or training sessions, a bike room and private storage. The unique cantilevered structure of HL23 gives residents the pleasure of floating directly above their very own world class urban oasis.
Vibrant, exciting and bursting with brash attitude, New York is one of the world’s favourite cities, a place where anything seems possible and simply walking a few blocks becomes an exhilarating experience.
With space in seriously short supply New York developers are eyeing the sky, building ever higher and often slimmer towers to house the never-ending demand for their city. There are also low-level options though including the charming architecture of Brooklyn that lies across the East River from Manhattan or among the brownstones of The West Village.
Chelsea is west of Broadway towards the Hudson River and offers one of Manhattans most eclectic mix of high-rises, industrial-chic lofts and low-level family homes.
Once populated mainly by impecunious artists, the opening of world-class art galleries followed by the redevelopment of the High Line, a former train line transformed in a wonderful elevated park, has brought wealthier buyers. Today Chelsea has the highest concentration of art galleries in the city as well as antique markets, vintage shops and impressive food markets.
