Review of 55 West 17th Street by Carter Horsley

Toll Brothers City Living is erecting a 19-story, mid-block apartment building at 55 West 17th Street in Chelsea between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.  The building has been designed by Morris Adjmi and will have 53 condominium apartments.

Bottom Line

A pleasant mid-block apartment building in Chelsea with a doorman and concierge, a children’s playroom and a fitness center but no garage and no roof deck.


The building has a façade of white, handmade Danish brick, a dark entrance marquee and the middle section of its façade is also dark on the lower three floors.  There is a façade on the central section of the 13th floor, and two small setbacks on the 15th floor.


The building has a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a double-height residents’ lounge with a billiards table and a dramatic spiral staircase and wet bar, a screening room, a full-time doorman and concierge, bicycle storage and a landscaped terrace with grills.


Kitchens have black oak cabinetry, Bianco Oro marble countertops and backsplashes, wine refrigerators and Gaggenau appliances.  Apartments also have wide oak plank floors.

Apartment 1003 is a two-bedroom unit with a 20-foot-long living/dining room with a 13-foot-long, pass-through kitchen.

Apartment 405 is a two-bedroom unit with a 20-foot-long living/dining room with an 11-foot-wide pass-through kitchen.

Apartment 501 is a two-bedroom unit with a 19-foot-long living/dining room with a 10-foot-wide, pass-through kitchen.

Apartment 602 is a one-bedroom unit with a 20-foot-long living/dining room with a 9-foot-long, pass-through kitchen.
