Chelsea’s Carriage House launches sales after three-year delay
After more than three years of delays, sales are now officially underway at Chelsea’s the Carriage House, the former horse stable at 159 West 24th Street that Broad Mill Development Group has converted to 24 high-end condominiums.
The Michael Schmitt-designed project, which preserved the stable’s original limestone façade, exposed brick walls and cast-iron columns, is offering up studios, one- and two-bedroom units as well as duplex lofts and penthouses, with interiors designed by Gustavo Martinez and with prices ranging from $695,000 to $3.6 million. There’s also a roof deck and eight private indoor parking spots, two of which are reserved for penthouse buyers and the rest of which are up for sale for $200,000 each.
Sales were originally slated to launch at the Carriage House during the fall of 2007 under a Citi Habitats marketing team, but the developers wound up falling behind on their loan payments, and by the summer of 2009, they were facing lawsuits from two lenders for a total of around $20 million, in addition to 25 mechanic’s liens.
Now that the building has regained its footing, Warburg Marketing Group’s Jocelyn Turken, Joél Moss and Herbert Chou will be heading up sales. TRD
