  • #18 Rated condo - Chelsea
How was this building rated?

The elegant and handsome Metal Shutter Building at 524 West 19th Street was designed by Shigeru Ban and built in 2007 by Jeff Spiritos, the president of HEEA Development L.L.C., and Klemens Gasser, a Chelsea art dealer.

It has a very prime location in West Chelsea flanked by Frank O. Gehry’s sail-like, IAC headquarters building and Annabelle Seldorf’s terracotta-banded 520 West 19th Street, and across the street from Jean Nouvel’s 100 Eleventh Avenue with its broadly curbed façade of differently angled and sized windows.

Ban’s 11-story building has only 9 residential condominium apartments. It was completed in 2011.
