Sales have launched at 505 West 19th Street, a new High Line-adjacent Chelsea condominium project comprised of two 10-story buildings.

The project’s piece de resistance: Its shared lobby, which connects the two towers, is situated directly beneath the High Line, meaning residents will be able to see the underside of the elevated park when they look up.

“There’s a large skylight so you can look up and see everything. It’s really very unique,” Tricia Cole, of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, who is heading sales at the project alongside colleague James Lansill, said in a release from the firm.

The project, developed by Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital, has a total 35 units, spread across the two buildings. There are just eight units in the westerly tower and 27 in the tower to the East. The units are comprised of one-bedroom to five-bedroom pads. Twenty of them have direct elevator entry.

Just five units were released today, priced between $2.24 million for a one-bedroom and $7.4 million for a three-bedroom.

The project is the first to be completely designed inside and out by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen, who is known for designing the interiors at Extell Development’s One57.

“As Thomas says, he designed everything from the bricks down to the toothbrush holders,” Cole said. — Katherine Clarke
