Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"With 354 condominium apartments, The Chelsea Mercantile at 252 Seventh Avenue is one of the largest residential conversions of a commercial property in Chelsea.

The conversion in 2000 of the handsome, 21-story, 1906 building was designed by the firm of Avinash K. Malhotra and Gruzen Samton, one of the city's leading architectural firms, for Rockrose Development, one of the city's leading residential builders and converts." Read Carter's Full Review
