Rarely available opportunity to own a 26-foot-wide building with air rights on a prime Chelsea block. 255 West 18th Street's location combines the vibrancy of central Chelsea with the serenity of a streetscape with limited, one-way traffic. Retain the 1920 brick facade or start afresh to create a one-of-a-kind, bespoke townhome with elevator and roof garden or a luxury boutique residential development. The current three-story structure of approximately 3,616 square feet on a lot of approximately 26 feet by 67 feet--combined with additional air rights of 5,890 square feet--would allow for five stories and a roof garden. Delivered vacant.
The varied architectural styles found in Manhattan's Downtown neighborhood of Chelsea reflect its status on the US National Register of Historic Places with both grand estates and townhomes and converted industrial buildings. Enjoy the great outdoors along The High Line and Hudson River Greenway and shop Chelsea Market, Eataly, designer flagships and creative emporia. Gain inspiration from the Rubin Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art and add to a collection from Chelsea's impeccably curated art galleries. From Elmo to Cookshop, and everything in between, Chelsea residents enjoy outstanding restaurants and nightlife. The surrounding neighborhoods-the West Village, the Meatpacking District, the Flatiron District, NoMad and Hudson Yards--are each equally iconic, and Chelsea is in the heart of them all.
