The Fitzroy, a ground-up condominium development at 514 West 24th Street has pulled back its construction netting to reveal an opulent exterior of deep-green terracotta and copper-framed oak windows. Not since the McGraw Hill Building on 42nd Street has the city seen a green-colored masonry building this good. Designed by Roman and Williams, the building's rich detailing and bold vertical lines evoke the Art Deco style and are a break from the glass and Modernistic designs rising throughout West Chelsea.
The Fitzroy stands 10 floors tall and is situated between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, by the High Line, next to Cary Tamarkin's 508 West 24th Street and diagonal to the Peter Marino-designed condo the Getty. The building will hold 14 two- to five-bedroom residences that roughly average 3,000 square feet in size. Sales launched in fall 2015 with asking prices averaging more than $3,100 a foot. The least expensive listing was a 2,283-square-foot two-bedroom listed for $5.2 million. The priciest was a 4-bedroom penthouse listed for $24 million. There are currently no homes on the market.
The residences will have 11-foot ceilings, hydronic radiant floor heating, 8-foot oak doors, private elevator entrances, and kitchens by Smallbone of Devises. All units have north and south exposures and some will have terraces/loggias with views of the High Line and Hudson River. Oversized windows manufactured by Vermont-based J.S. Benson were selected to complement the airy ceilings heights. According to the team, the windows use a combination of old-world craftsmanship and state-of-the-art practices in their construction. The same copper used to accent the exterior adorns each home's freestanding tub, mirrors, and fixtures.

JDS Development, who is a partnering developer on the project with Largo, was behind the conversions of the Walker and Stella buildings whose original Ralph Walker designs sport the Art Deco style as well. JDS is also a partnering developer on 111 West 57th Street whose SHoP Architects-design is partly clad in terracotta and echoes Art Deco architecture. As for green buildings, in the literal sense, JDS is readying to build a structurally-audacious 1,000-foot rental at 247 Cherry Street in downtown's Two Bridges neighborhoods. That supertall will also be wrapped in an emerald green facade, but rather than terracotta, glass.
