Chelsea | West Chelsea Condo, Condop, Coop Apartments & Townhouses
19th Century Townhouses to Pre-war Coops to Post Modern New Luxury Condo Developments
Chelsea is located between 34th Street and Greenwich Village on the West Side. Chelsea is largely a residential area with a varied mix of high-and mid-rise buildings, brownstones and industrial lofts. The architecture in this area is unique. East of Ninth Avenue, the spacious and stylish loft warehouses give way to stunning landmark townhouses, prewar co-ops and new luxury high-rise buildings.
One of the most architecturally distinct pre-war buildings is London Terrace, a 1929 complex that runs the entire block from 23rd to 24th Streets between Ninth Avenue and Tenth Avenue. London Terrace includes a common garden, a pool, and 1,700 units in co-ops (known as the Towers) and rentals (known as the Gardens.) In 1930 London Terrace was the largest apartment complex in NYC and in the world located across the street from the fashionable townhouses and Fitzroy brownstones on "Millionaire's Row".
