Background

Chelsea is an area rich with history. Named after the estate of an 18th century land-owner, the area around what would become 22nd Street was farm land in the 1700s, an industrialized neighborhood of small family homes in the early 1800s, and a theater district in the late 1800s. West 23rd Street was the original Broadway, a theater strip offering everything from opera to daily vaudeville, until The Empire opened on Broadway and became the epicenter of American theater.[1] Today the area has emerged as one of the major contemporary art centers.[2]

Three tall buildings on West 20th highlight the depth of the history in the area. The former Baker and Williams Warehouses were a storage site for Manhattan Project uranium during the second World War, and the residual uranium was not cleaned out until the late 1980s and early 1990s.[3]

The building of 133 West 22nd Street sits on the site of a former apartment complex originally built in 1909. The replacement of the old walk-up building with a modern condominium project boasting all manner of contemporary amenities is a fitting example of the efforts towards modernity throughout the Chelsea area.

Location

133 West 22nd Street is a short walk away from an eclectic collection of landmarks, stores, boutiques, and restaurants which reflects the diversity of the area's population. Residents are less than half a mile from restaurants like the Guilty Goose, which offers a combination of fine dining and unusual craft beers for the adventurous, coffee shops like Joe Pro, and several parks and playgrounds.

The Ladies' Mile District, a historic district known for turn-of-the-century department stores and theaters and once one of the famous shopping destinations of the world, is also nearby.[4]

133 West 22nd Street is a good location that allows residents to satisfy most day to day needs without a vehicle.

Construction

133 West 22nd Street is a post-war mid rise designed by Cetra/Ruddy Incorporated. The new building was developed by Magnum Real Estate Group and Ascend Group, and construction, which transformed an old walk-up apartment complex into a modern condominium project, was completed in 2007. [5]

Layout and Features

A sunny day at 133 West 22nd

With thirteen stories containing one hundred condos, 133 West 22nd is a mid rise that makes the best of the panoramic view it offers. Apartments are nearly nine and a half feet high and feature floor-to-ceiling windows as well as glass walls in the living rooms, allowing for maximum benefits of natural light. In addition, each apartment has solid oak hardwood floors. Apartments range in size from 500 to 2,400 square feet and do not have balconies, though several offer terraces or private roof cabanas.

There is a special emphasis on luxury in the kitchen areas, which feature ItalKitchen design formats and are outfitted with stainless steel fixtures and appliances, Sub-Zero fridge, Bosch oven and dishwasher, Marvin wine coolers, and black lava countertops.[6]

133 West 22nd is particularly known for its façade, a series of gentle cast-iron curves which set the building apart from the flat exteriors of the neighboring buildings.[7] Inside, the lobby area is populated with glass artwork, and the top of the building offers a roof terrace with cabanas and a view of the surrounding city, including the Empire State building, from 13 floors up. The roof terrace also offers two grills for rooftop barbecuing. Residents can also make use of the fitness center and recreation room, or relax by the outdoor pool. For the evenings, the building also offers a wet bar and grill and fine dining facilities.[8]

The building offers a 24-hour concierge and doorman as well as on-site parking, making it easy for residents to come and go at all times.

Trivia

  • Apartments offer a TV remote system which is designed for use with multiple televisions. The remote knows what room it is in and adjusts what equipment it controls accordingly.[9]
  • Controversial developer Ben Shaoul was called "developer of the year" by Curbed NY, the same site that dubbed him "Sledgehammer Shaoul" in reference to his aggressive contributions to the "hyper-luxurification" in East Village.[10][11]
  • The Hotel Chelsea is only a few blocks away. The former home of great artists such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Allen Ginsberg, the hotel has also been the location of some particularly infamous deaths, including Dylan Thomas' death by pneumonia and the murder of punk rock figure Nancy Spungen.
