View of West Chelsea from The Caledonia View of West Chelsea from The Caledonia
Each of New York’s luxury enclaves stands out with signature features. Pre-war opulence permeates Central Park West. Residents at Billionaires’ Row live higher than anyone else in the country. None of these, however, can match the sheer inventiveness, experimental spirit, and sleek architecture on exhibit in West Chelsea, on and off the High Line, with a star-studded roster of architects from all over the world.

The late and great Zaha Hadid incorporated her signature style for her only NYC residential project, which faces the High Line. The zig-zagging facade curves is reflected in the split-level unit layouts, where kitchens were designed by Hadid herself. Sensuous curves are also on view through the amenities, such as the sunlit pool, fitness center, and screening room.

Despite its seemingly restrained exterior, the Soori High Line, designed by SCDA Architects, is one of the most unique condos in all of New York. Living room ceilings rise to atrium-like heights, amply lit by full-height windows. Luxuriant finishes permeate down to the smallest touches, such as leather-wrapped door handles.

Moreover, the Soori sits just steps from the High Line and just a block away from Hudson Yards.

Anabelle Selldorf’s sleek, chrome-plated tower at 200 11th Avenue revs with energy like a vintage hot rod. Speaking of hot rods, tenants can ride theirs right up to the apartment via the dedicated car elevator. After stepping out of the in-unit garage, the driver is treated to Hudson River panoramas from double-height windows. The 19-story tower holds just 16 apartments, creating a penthouse vibe in every unit.

11 floors | 5 units | 2020 | Architect: Peter Marino

The Getty-501 West 24th Street
Was it wise to name a luxury condo after the gas station it replaced? Apparently so, since the Getty’s 2018 penthouse set a record for all of Downtown. The crisp, minimalist building opens onto the High Line and Chelsea from three directions. Ample sunlight pours in through enormous windows, some of which rise 23 feet high. The 11-story high-rise contains just five apartments, which brings a degree of privacy hardly matched by any other high-rise apartment building in the city.

21 floors | 72 units | 2010 | Architect: The Ateliers Jean Nouvel

100 Eleventh Avenue nyc condos
The faceted facade of architect Jean Nouvel’s curved high-rise ranks among the city’s finest. An abstract array of angled apertures, colored in different shades of turquoise, ripples like the waters of the Hudson River that it looks out upon and seems to dissolve into thin air above the street corner entrance. The building’s many amenities, such as an expansive fitness center and an indoor swimming pool, similarly channel an aesthetic of sumptuous modernism.

Architects Tamarkin with the design firm Hill West brings the clean-cut Bauhaus style to Chelsea, where exposed bands of concrete alternate with strips of broad, loft-style casement windows.
