At 125 West 22nd Street in the heart of Chelsea stands the sustainable structure of Verde Chelsea. The design of this new condominium building in Manhattan incorporates green concepts throughout the building and each of its 33 apartments. Proudly designed by New York high-rise expert H. Thomas O’Hara, the 13-story building features multiple garden terraces that transform the architecture into a sculptural play of brick-clad volumes.
The condominium units are a mixture of one and two-bedroom configurations and are designed with hardwood floors, high ceilings and oversized windows. The spaces are smartly-designed and constructed of recycled and organic materials. The gourmet kitchens are filled with high-end appliances to compliment its counter tops and wooden cabinetry. The bathrooms feature natural materials and an organic color palette matched with marble and walnut accents.
In keeping with the green lifestyle, the huge windows are complemented by spaces for terraces filled with plants to help regulate the surrounding temperature. Each apartment also has huge closet spaces, including a walk-in closet. The units have radiant heating as well. Apartments do not exceed three per floor, heightening privacy for their residents.
The building has a video security and an alarm system installed. In addition, the lobby is also attended by a concierge and a doorman.
Other amenities in the building include a roof deck, a landscaped courtyard, and private storage areas.
There is a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and a few landmark spots in the surrounding area. Subway lines are conveniently located a few blocks from the building.
