Review of 514 West 24th Street by Carter Horsley

The Fitzroy is a stunning, deep-green, terracotta-clad, mid-rise, mid-block residential condominium at 514 West 24th Street in Chelsea.

It was developed by JDS Development Group and Largo Investments and scheduled for completion in 2016.  JDS recently made condominium conversions of the handsome Walker and Stella buildings on the West Side that were designed in Art Deco-style by Ralph Walker.

This new building has 14 apartments.

Roman & Williams, which is headed by Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer who were married when they were film editors in Hollywood, was the architect and the IBI Group-Gruzen Samton is the architect of record.

The building is named after a British Lieutenant General named Charles Fitzroy who lived in Greenwich Village in the 18th Century and whose “military success brought forth naming a highway in his honor,” according to the building’s website.  “Before the Manhattan grid,” it continued, “the Fitzroy Road ran through current day from West 14th Street through present Eighth Avenue, to 40th Street and Ninth Avenue.”

Bottom Line

A very elegant, green terracotta mid-block building in Chelsea with Art Deco-style accents.


The building has copper spandrels and window frames highlighting its dark-green terracotta cladding.  The building has a central setback at the 8th floor.


The building has a 24-hour attended lobby, a landscaped rooftop lounge with summer kitchen, a bicycle room, a laundry room, a children’s art studio, a wine cellar with secure locker for each apartment and a La Palestrina fitness center.


Apartments have 11-foot ceilings and kitchens by Smallbone of Devises.

Apartment 9 is a four-bedroom unit with a large great room flanked by two angular loggias.  The unit also has a library and a formal dining room.

Apartment 4W is a three-bedroom unit with 2,345 square feet and a formal dining room.

Apartment 3E is a two-bedroom unit with 2,265 square feet and a formal dining room.
