From the architect. The city elicits in our culture a stark duality - a desire to be immersed in its spectacle and a simultaneous craving for respite from its ceaseless activity. Avant Chelsea will provide for its residents both experiences. A modern, culturally sophisticated urbanite requires access to constantly shifting stimulation as well as a private space that can be adapted to their personal needs and sensibility.

This new condominium in West Chelsea will contain twelve floors of flexible apartments, upper-floor terraces, recreation areas, and a courtyard. The street façade is a window wall, skillfully proportioned to achieve a balance between the scale of the user and the building at large. The design is efficient with a refined elegance.
