25' Wide/Garage/Signature Architecture
The historic strength of Cast Iron, the power of Brutalism, and a dash of Corbusier whimsy all contribute to the architecture of 241 West 17th Street. This rare 5,400 sq ft mixed use building will become the enviable signature home for some lucky buyer to engrave their name on. Currently configured as a luxurious five story single family home with elevator, staff quarters and private garage, the conversion to offices or boutique meeting center is available by the C6-2a zoning.
Located on West 17th between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, you are surrounded by the TAMI world of Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter. Residential icons Walker Tower and the Steiner Building are your neighbors. The distinguished 50' vertical glass front and 21' ceiling inside offer drama, grand south light amid contemporary styling.
With a nod to its cast iron origins, this 1999 new construction house has an urban Zen rarely found in Chelsea townhouses. The elevator services all five floors which are currently configured as 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, living room, dining room and kitchen, library and 2 ground floor offices with kitchenette plus the garage. There is a finished roof deck garden and a heated and cooled cellar which has 8' ceiling height. The building has 400 amps electric service, multi zoned heating and cooling. The structure can continue as a single family home with staff quarters on the ground floor, or with the 2 open floors measuring 22' x 36' and C6-2a zoning it can easily serve as a luxury private meeting facility with executive quarters above.
241 West 17th Street is a truly rare opportunity for the private or corporate buyer.
