The John H. Young Studio: 536 West 29th Street
Located in West Chelsea, moments away from New York City's new tech sector in Hudson Yards, this rare fully commercially zoned building was built in 1904 and originally housed the studios of renowned theater set designer John H. Young of Ziegfeld Follies fame.
Masterfully restored and repurposed throughout the years, 536 West 29th Street is now a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece that is the epitome of "urban zen" in the nexus of West Chelsea's vibrant art gallery district and Hudson Yard's new tech corridor and neighborhood.
Built 25 ft x 65 ft on a 98.75 ft lot, this building was designed with two entrances on West 29th Street highlighting ultimate versatility leading to two separate spaces with dramatic 32 ft and 19 ft high ceilings across an architecturally impressive and columnless 25 ft wide building structure. Over sized windows and skylights provide generous northern light throughout with floor-to-ceiling steel casement windows overlooking a tranquil south-facing private garden with a centerpiece Cherry Blossom tree accentuated by 22 ft tall custom steel walls.
Currently configured as the perfect live/work space, this building includes various open working spaces with a separate studio area, atrium, great room with chef's kitchen, library, private garden, terrace, and den, all accentuated with bedroom/sleeping areas throughout. Exposed architectural elements throughout this building add to its incomparable character and charm, creating the ultimate urban refuge in the middle of one of Manhattan's most exciting and rapidly evolving locations. This building offers limitless potential easily accommodating commercial/office use with amply spaced co-working spaces, an impressive art gallery/foundation, studios, or residence.
