Review of 261 West 25th Street by Carter Horsley

The Seymour at 261 West 25th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in Chelsea is a mid-block condominium apartment building that sports an extremely attractive entrance and handsome fenestration.

The developer is the Naftali Group and Goldstein, Hill & West is the architect and Rottet Studio is the interior designer.

The 12-story building has 61 units.

Bottom Line

The handsome building has a very central Chelsea location close to the Chelsea Hotel and the Fashion Institute of Technology and convenient public transportation


The lower eight floors have a red-brick façade with four large bays of multi-paned windows beneath a dark metal four-story top that is mostly setback with continuous bands of multi-paned windows.

The top four floors have a couple of setbacks and corner windows and the building has an asymmetrical and geometrically detailed roofline that nicely balances the setbacks below it.

The two-story base of the building is highlighted with dark metal frames that line up well with the higher window bays but are have light sconces between the compartmentalized window sections.  The window sections above handsomely and discretely outlined with thin masonry frames above thin stone sills.

The building’s entrance has a large, black marquee supported by two outrigger cables and the entrance surround is glass permitting views through the lobby to the building’s garden that is bordered on one side by the building’s gym and a lounge with a fireplace, a media room and a library on the other.



The building has a doorman, a concierge, a gym, a garden, storage and a roof deck with a kitchen.


Apartments have kitchens with SubZero, Miele and Bertazzoni appliances and bathrooms with Calcutta Tucci marble and double sinks, and oversized ceiling rainshowers.
