Updated 1/29/2020 to include the latest news and images of Lantern House.

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 Chelsea, on and off the High Line, with a star-studded roster of architects from all over the world.
It wasn't easy to narrow it down to only ten, but the following list shows the most architecturally inspired finished and nearly completed condominiums in Chelsea. However, once Lantern House nears completion (estimated for this fall), it will be a strong contender for the top ten. It is easily recognized for its modern interpretation on the bay window, many of which are now installed, and sales have just launched on the condos inside. Prices will range from $1.4 million to approximately $17 million.

36 floors | 236 units | 2020 | Architect: Bjarke Ingels Group

Bjarke Ingels’ twisting 36- and 26-story towers span an entire block between the High Line and Hudson River Park, allowing for the 236 luxury condos to partake in sweeping views of both the river and the city. The project will also have the country's first Six Senses Hotel, commercial space, and a new public promenade that will extend to the High Line.

Walker Tower
The 22-story tower takes its name from Ralph Walker, the architect of the 1929 telephone switching building that comprises the lower floors. The architects at Cetra/Ruddy not only treated the original’s Art Deco with utmost deference, but also extended and intensified the energetic theme to create a 21st century masterpiece wrought in the finest Gotham style.

11 floors | 31 units | 2018 | Architect: SCDA Architects

New York City apartments
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. Most units feature personal pools, which come into full view from the living area thanks to their glass walls. Moreover, the Soori sits just steps from the High Line and just a block away from Hudson Yards.

11 floors | 39 units | 2017 | Architect: Zaha Hadid

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.

19 floors | 16 units | 2010 | Architect: Selldorf Architects

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.

19 floors | 44 units | 2015 | Architect: Sir Norman Foster

The 19-story tower, designed by Sir Norman Foster, channels crisp, timeless modernism from the fluted-wall porte cochere through and similarly styled amenities such as the fitness center. The clean-lined facade makes picture-perfect frames around the Hudson River-facing floor-to-ceiling windows.

THe Getty manhattan condominiums View to the High Line
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.

When designing the Porter House at 66 Ninth Avenue, SHoP Architects boldly grafted a striking six-story modernist cube onto pre-war industrial loft. The building sits right by the nightlife of the Meatpacking District, at the doorstep of the Greenwich Village, and next to Google’s New York office.

West Chelsea apartments
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. The minimalist clock facing the High Line completes the turn-of-the-20th-century avant-garde aesthetic. The 10-story building holds just 15 apartments, which are some of the roomiest in the neighborhood.
