We tend to mock dated real estate adages like “location, location, location,” but in the case of this sensational West Chelsea condo, those old words of wisdom ring true. Situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, with dramatic views of both, this 4-bedroom, 3,353-square-foot apartment is on West 19th Street’s “Architect’s Row,” featuring new buildings by Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban and Annabelle Selldorf, who designed this boutique condominium building to have floor-to-ceiling windows and a striking midnight blue terracotta façade.

The apartment is modern, fresh and contemporary, much like its neighbors and the surrounding art galleries of Chelsea. It’s also the rare new apartment that manages to be perfect for entertaining (with an open 40′ living and dining area) while not sacrificing any space for the bedrooms (the two master suites attest to that). While we recommend checking out the entire photo gallery, below is a quick peek at one of the views, of the High Line, Chelsea’s landmark London Terrace towers, the Empire State Building, and beyond.
