Today's Featured Building: Citizen
The Chelsea neighborhood of the Manhattan has a new member in its entourage of residential buildings, the Citizen. West 23rd Street in the late 19th century featured daily vaudeville performances at the Proctor Theater and was New York's main theater strip until The Empire opened on Broadway 20 blocks uptown.
The Citizen is a modern understated construct that takes its exterior design concepts from the neighborhood in which it is located. Inside, relatively few apartments are available, 29 in all, in a 16 storey structure, somewhere between a mid-rise and a low-rise, by Manhattan standards.
