Description of The Chainworks Building at 144 West 18th Street

The Chainworks Building was originally built in 1910 as a red brick factory and converted to an 8-story, 18-unit boutique condominium in 2002. It is topped with two common roof decks -- one with outdoor dining and gas grill, and the other a furnished sundeck with incredible skyline and landmark views, including the Empire State Building. The building's part-time doorman is on duty seven days a week with designated hours, and residents access their home via a keyed elevator. Additional amenities include a bike room, storage room, and video intercom.

It is well situated in the heart of Chelsea at 144 West 18th Street. This puts it close to Eataly, Chelsea Market, and many more spectacular retail and restaurant venues in Flatiron, Union Square, and the Meatpacking District, as well as convenient transportation.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Chainworks Building

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very attractive former 6-story, loft building at 144 West 18th Street in the heart of Chelsea was converted to residential condominiums in late 2002.

It has 18 apartments ranging in size from 1,350 to 3,400 square feet and initial asking prices were $985,000 to $2,250,000. The building also has two penthouses, one of which is a duplex, that were priced at $1,995,000 and $2,495,000 and had 1,750 and 2,000 square feet, respectively." Read Carter's Full Review
