Review of 555 West 23rd Street by Carter Horsley

The very attractive, red-brick building at 555 West 23rd Street was originally conceived as a rental development, but changed to a condominium. 

It has 337 apartments and construction began in 2004 and was completed in 2006. It is a two-building complex with a 14-story section on 23rd Street and a 13-story section on 24th Street separated from a central courtyard. 

Douglaston Development, a Levine Buildings company, served as the developer with Real Evergreen International and GTM Realty Associates. 

It was designed by Stephen B. Jacobs Group and its interiors were designed by Andi Pepper, who also collaborated on the Ganesvoort Hotel in the Meatpacking district to the south.

Bottom Line

A large, attractive, through-block, red-brick apartment building and an very pleasant stretch west of the High Line Park in the heart of Chelsea’s art gallery neighborhood and one block west of the very handsome London Terrace full-block residential enclave.


555 West 23rd Street goes through the block to 550 West 24th Street where the building is only 13-stories high. 

The atrium lobby has a waterfall and a large "license plate" sign with the building's address.


It has a doorman, a concierge, a 12,000-square-foot roof deck, a doorman, valet services, a fitness room, bicycle storage, on-site valet parking, some terraces, and a landscaped outdoor courtyard.


All apartments have wall safes.

Apartments have GE stainless steel refrigerators, ranges and dishwashers with Grigio Sardo granite kitchen countertops with  glass mosaic backsplashes and cayenne maple kitchen cabinetry. 

Baths have expresso wood vanities with Juparuna Vyara granite tops and Amarillo stone shower enclosures.

Large apartments have washers and dryers. 

Apartment N11B has a is a two-bedroom unit that has a 9-foot-wide entry foyer that opens onto a 23-foot-wide living/dining area and a pass-through kitchen. 

Apartment N7F is a two-bedroom unit with a 9-foot-wide entry foyer that leads to a 26-foot-long living room with a pass-through kitchen. 

Apartment S3R is a one-bedroom unit that has a 7-foot-wide entry foyer, a 23-foot-long living/dining room with a pass-through kitchen and a 29-foot-long terrace. 

Apartment N4A is a one-bedroom unit that has a 10-foot-long entry foyer and a 23-foot-lone living room with a pass-through kitchen.


Following a 1999 rezoning, this block witnessed considerable mid-town block development with The Tate and The Marais apartment buildings preceding the construction of this building. 

Two other, smaller mid-block buildings also were built just to the west of the High Line Park on the block, the High Line 519 and HL 23.
