2,400 sq. ft. Chelsea Co-op Loft Sells for $2.15M
An enormous 2,400 sq. ft. co-op loft at 135 West 17th Street in Chelsea just sold for $2.15 million, $300,000 less than the original $2.45 million asking price when the apartment first went on the market last September.
To date, this is the highest price on record ever paid for a cooperative apartment in the building. Prior to this closing, a sixth floor loft sold for $1,445,000 in September 2009 after selling for $1,185,000 just two years earlier.
The seller was a trust established by the late New York City artist Joanne Lowenthal.
Daniel Shapiro was the buyer.
Prudential Elliman brokers Jason Amirian and Jason Karadus had the listing.
Like many Chelsea lofts, this apartments is railroad shaped. It is a light, open unit complete with a modern stainless steel loft kitchen, gorgeous refinished oak floors, and a perfect entertaining and work space spanning nearly the entire length of the apartment.
The apartment includes a washer and dryer (of course), an elegant master bath, and a nicely configured home office workspace in a windowed corner. Monthly maintenance is $2,355.
The building is close to transportation, located between 6th and 7th Avenues. Thrift shops abound on this West 17th block: the Chelsea Housing Works Shop and the Angel Street Thrift Shop are right outside the door.
