Located at 212 West 18th St., the 24-story building in the heart of Chelsea offers protected 360-degree views of Manhattan that are unique to the building since it was built before height limits were enacted and is one of the few buildings in the area that rises high above its surroundings.

Apartments range from one- to five-bedrooms and feature 18-foot ceilings, radiant floor heating, French herringbone oak flooring, Smallbone kitchens, marble bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures and steam showers. Many units include private terraces and 11 units have wood-burning fireplaces.

Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman, concierge, library lounge, a fitness center with yoga room, sauna, a children’s center and a landscaped common roof deck with a dining area, sun lawn, observation deck and covered cabana room.

JDS and PMG’s property at 435 West 50th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, also designed by Walker, is in the process of transforming 17 stories of commercial space into 65 residential units, or 115,000 sq. ft. of livable space. Amenities are to include a resident’s lounge, fitness center, residential storage and bicycle storage.

Verizon will retain the building’s lower 10 floors, which will remain in-use as offices and an operations base.
