As new developments rise along the High Line in West Chelsea, families are flocking to them, the New York Times reported.

A lack of family-sized apartments Downtown has sent prices for luxury condominiums surging past those of Uptown and Midtown. One of the most sought-after neighborhoods is West Chelsea, as the High Line’s elevated parkland continues to drive development.

At developer/architect Cary Tamarkin’s 508 West 24th Street, all but one of the 15 three-bedroom units will offer views of the High Line, only 15 feet away. The 10-story building is expected to be finished by June 2014.

Tamarkin’s building will offer three three-bedroom penthouses that range from 3,000 to more than 3,300 square feet along with 11 three-bedrooms of 2,300 square feet. Over half of the apartments will feature outdoor spaces.

Not far away, at 560 West 24th Street, Adam Gordon Holdings is building an eight-unit condominium that will be open by spring of 2014. The apartments will average 3,300 square feet.

Gordon tells the Times that the new Avenues private school is another big draw for West Chelsea, attracting some 1,200 children and families. [NYT] — TRD
