In recent years, the stretch of West Chelsea around the High Line has been dominated by architecturally adventurous condominiums with ultra-luxe finishes, five-star amenities, and correspondingly high prices. However, the prewar buildings that once defined the Chelsea Historic District have not been consigned to history: Sales have launched at the newly reimagined 458 West 20th Street, a prewar cooperative located in a charming stretch of Chelsea near the General Theological Seminary.
The first availability is a renovated one-bedroom priced at $824K for Residence #3A. This is an incredible bargain compared to the median price of $1.625 million for a one-bedroom condo in Chelsea (figures per CityRealty listings), and these sponsor units allow buyers to get more bang for their buck without having to go through the uncertainty of a board approval process. Additionally, the building allows pets, pied-a-terres, parents buying for or with children, and gifting.
458_West_20th_Street The building is located on one of the most beautiful historic streets in Lower Manhattan but surrounded by some of the city's most exciting venues and companies

"458 West 20th Street is an answer for people who don’t want to take on the time, stress, or expense of renovating on their own with current supply chain issues and contractors and designers who are already booked so far out. We have taken that on for them so they can buy and move right into like-new homes" — Myles Horn, Principal, Glacier Equities

In September 2021, Glacier Equities purchased the co-op's unsold shares for $3.1 million. Since then, they have been busy combining the layouts to offer 11 residences, gut-renovating the interiors, and redesigning common areas like the lobby, hallways, and elevators. Future improvements are expected to include all new windows, repainting the building's facade, and upgraded vent installation to allow for new HVAC systems in units.
458 West 20th Street does not have a gym in the building, but is one block from the Chelsea Piers fitness center. It is also close to the High Line, Hudson River Park, Little Island, Pier 57, Chelsea Market, world-famous art galleries, fine dining establishments, and boutique shopping. The A, C, and E subway lines are a short walk from the building.
Chelsea The building is across from the General Theological Seminary whose bucolic grounds, called the Close, are lushly planted. (
