The Onyx Chelsea at 261 West 28th Street in Chelsea

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams NYC

Chelsea condosChelsea is easily recognized as Manhattan’s vibrant, artsy district.  Numerous art galleries, the High Line, world-class restaurants and Chelsea Piers are within this West Side neighborhood.


Near the heart of this beautiful community is the Onyx Chelsea on 261 West 28th Street, a full-service boutique condominium.  The award-winning architectural design team of FXFowle, whose projects include commercial and residential buildings all over the world, designed the Onyx to reflect Chelsea’s energetic personality.  


Its exterior is glass, granite and metal.  The black metallic panels are fastened to the structure with stainless steel bolts.  Oversized windows let in lots of light and the building’s vertical bands are illuminated at night, creating a glowing silhouette against Chelsea’s skyline.  


The 11-story mixed-use building contains 52 luxury condominiums, ranging in size from 700 square feet one-bedrooms to large three bedrooms.


Steps away is Whole Foods Market, The Fashion Institute of Technology, Chelsea’s Galleries, Chelsea Park and plenty of boutiques and quaint eateries.   


The finishings are meticulous and luxurious; gleaming hardwoods, mosaic glassed tiles, marbled, spa-like baths with radiant floor heating, chrome faucets and top-of-the-line appliances such as Sub Zero, Bosch and Viking.  Interiors have high ceilings and living rooms open to sleek, modern kitchens.  Some units have landscaped terraces.


There are two rooftop common areas that give spectacular city views and a professionally-designed fitness facility, although two New York fitness clubs are within walking distance.  The dramatic lobby contains an original Vera Wang sculpture, cold storage and the building has a state-of-the-art security system. 


Built in 2007, The Onyx Chelsea is an architecturally distinct luxury condominium building  located near the heart of one of Manhattan’s largest and eclectic neighborhoods.
