Review of 777 Sixth Avenue by Carter Horsley

This 32-story rental apartment building at 777 Avenue of the Americas on the northwest corner at 26th Street in Chelsea’s former Flower District was erected by Macklowe Properties in 2001 and has 293 apartments.

It was designed by Schuman Lichtenstein Claman & Efron and is now owed by Equity Residential.

Bottom Line

This large beige-brick tower is entered almost surreptiously through a one-story, mid-block brick gate on 27th Street that leads through a glass-block alley with gravel to an entrance with a Jackson Pollock-like painting. 


A large rental apartment tower on Sixth Avenue one block west of Madison Square Park that has a side-street entrance that is so discrete it is almost a secret.

The beige-brick, stepped-plan tower has a 5-story base with a one-story stone base.

It has many corner windows and discrete air-conditioners.

It occupies much of the avenue block-front north of 26th Street. 


It has a concierge, a 24-hour health club, a gated, side-street entrance with a lengthy waterfall, a laundry room, a doorman, a live-in superintendent, a community room and is pet-friendly and smoke-free.
