To Showcase Foster + Partners Designed Luxury Condos
New York, NY March 19, 2014 – Scott Resnick and Brown Harris Stevens are pleased to announce the opening of the sales office for 551W21, the new 19-story luxury condominium in West Chelsea by internationally renowned architect Foster + Partners. Designed by Lee Mindel of Shelton, Mindel & Associates, the sales office meticulously presents the signature interior elements of Foster + Partners’ building design. Visits are by appointment.
551W21’s sales office is unlike a typical office, it feels like an inviting home with spectacular views of the Hudson River and the New York skyline. Located on the 20th floor in a tower in West Chelsea, the space was conceived to showcase and highlight the warmth of the interiors and the sumptuous details of a typical residence in 551W21, a building with a contemporary feel and inspired by the generously-scaled pre-war homes customary to Park Avenue and the Upper East Side.
It also realistically conveys the luxurious qualities, details of security, and sense of scale offered by Foster + Partners’ plan, including a large section of the curtain wall, 11-foot ceiling heights and window spans that are elegantly proportioned to capture the expansive views. Lee Mindel presents the true proportions of the rooms in the large-scale residences in 551W21, including the grand room, kitchen, dressing room and master bathroom. Its floor plan is thoughtfully designed to articulate the progression through space of an actual residence; from the entry hallway into the grand room, from the dressing room through double doors into the spacious master bathroom.
Mindel considered every aspect of the sales office to reflect a range of the 551W21’s exceptional characteristics. In a nod to the building’s contemporary aesthetic and highest levels of craftsmanship of the interior elements, he selected a thoughtful mix of custom furnishings – such as a modified version of a Rockefeller sofa – with classic modernist works to express the voice of the building without losing the formality of the space. Also incorporated are oak herringbone floors and the four rugs handmade by V’Soske are a continuous graphic of the longitude and latitude and as center of the composition of the site. Specially produced textiles of gold and titanium hues, capture and reflect the dramatic light of the location and reference 551W21’s window frames made of luminous metal. This offsite collage is perched high above the actual construction site two blocks south, so that the building of the building becomes an art piece itself.
Design in the sales office include furnishings and objects by Alvar Aalto, Billy Baldwin, Fontana Arte, Patrick Norguet, V’Soske, along with various components by Foster + Partners.
551W21 Sales Office is located on the 20th floor of the Chelsea Arts Tower and overlooks the building site at 551 West 21st Street. An outdoor space offers a view of the building’s progress.
551W21 residences are offered exclusively through Brown Harris Stevens. For a private showing, please call 212 452 6200 or email info@551W21ST.com. For more information, visit www.551W21.com
