Installation of The Fitzroy’s Art Deco-inspired exterior recently wrapped up at 514 West 24th Street in Chelsea. The residential building’s sidewalk scaffolding has been dismantled and the final remaining touches on the ground floor are almost complete. The large canopy that hangs over the front door is installed, while several marble slabs at the base of the structure remain covered in a protective cardboard. This should be imminently removed, fully revealing the richly textured and dark-colored façade. The L’Observatoire International-designed spotlight fixtures, which will illuminate the glazed terra cotta panels and copper-framed windows, are all in place. The 65,300-square-foot project is being designed by Roman and Williams and developed by JDS Development and Largo Investments. Residences start at $5.6 million and are being marketed by CORE.
New photos from up close and across the street reveal the overall appearance of the building and the details of its craftsmanship.
The Fitzroy is positioned close to the High Line, but at a sufficient distance from the swarms of tourists that frequent the famous elevated park. The reinforced concrete superstructure stands 120 feet tall with a total of ten stories. Inside are 14 half- and full-floor residences. The ninth floor features a penthouse that spans 4,328 square feet and yields four bedrooms, a great room with two private outdoor terraces, a library, and a media room. Amenities for The Fitzroy include a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center designed by La Palestra, a wine cellar with designated cabinets for each resident, a landscaped rooftop with a kitchen, an art studio for children, bike storage, and a climate-controlled storage room.
Completion of The Fitzroy is expected by the end of the year.
