at The Northwest corner of Sixth Avenue View Full Building Profile

Review of 101 West 24th Street by Carter Horsley

Chelsea Stratus at 101 West 24th Street was completed in 2008 as the tallest condominium tower in Chelsea and the first condominium tower in the phalanx of apartment towers that sprouted in the city’s former flower district on the Avenue of the Americas above 23rd Street after a rezoning in the late 1990s.

The 204-unit building was developed on a former site of a parking lot that had been used by Con Edison by LCOR and designed by SLCE Architects.

LCOR, whose corporate office is located in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, has about $8 billion in developments completed, under construction, or in pre-development and has developed more than 20,000 residential units and more than 16 million square feet of commercial space nationally.  It was formed in 1992 when its principals acquired the assets of the Linpro Company that had been founded in 1978.

Bottom Line

A handsome, tall tower in Chelsea with many balconies that is a block away from Mario Bataly’s Eataly at 200 Fifth Avenue and Madison Square Park.


The 491-foot-high, 40-story tower is on the northwest corner of the avenue and 24th Street and is faced with gray-tined glass and has a five-story base.

The building’s lobby has slate walls and a waterfall.

There is excellent public transportation.


The building has 24-hour doorman and concierge service, a roof deck designed by Thomas Balsey.

It also has a fitness center, a basketball court, a residents’ lounge with a fireplace, a billiard table and a dining area with a catering kitchen, a dog run and 16,000 square feet of retail space.


There are a variety of layouts, most of which are 1- and 2-bedroom units.  Many of the units have windowed kitchens, balconies with one side slightly angled, and living/dining rooms with one slightly angled side.

There are some 3-bedroom penthouses on the top three floors.

Kitchens have Macassar ebony cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Bathrooms have separate showers and bathtubs and Wenge wood vanities.

Apartment 10A is a 2-bedroom unit with a pass-through kitchen next to the entry foyer that leads to a 22-foot-long living/dining room.  It has a master bedroom with an angled fall and a balcony with a slightly angled side.

Apartment 10C is a one-bedroom unit with a 19-foot-long living/dining room adjacent to a pass-through kitchen.

Apartment 10D is a 2-bedroom unit with a foyer that opens onto a pass-through, windowed kitchen and a 22-foot-long living dining room that opens onto a balcony.

Another two bedroom unit has two balconies.
