Maverick Chelsea

  • Type: Multi-Family Residential
  • Projected Completion: Fall 2022
  • 300,000 SF

Rising 20 stories tall in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, these side-by-side towers feature 87 condo units and 112 rental units, 31% of which is designated affordable under the NYC Inclusionary Housing and Fair Housing Acts. The facades are formed from acid-washed precast concrete that create a striking, faceted column and spandrel grid. Inlaid metallic paint provides highlights against the shadows cast by the facets on the ever-changing, dynamic street front. 

Designed to support health & wellness, the buildings share amenities including a 60-foot-long swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room kid's playroom, yoga room, meditation room with a Himalayan salt wall, pet spa and storage. Bicycle parking provided exceeds the NYC code requirement, and 77 parking stalls are available, including spaces for electric vehicles. 

The building's envelope exceeds the NYC Energy Code performance requirements and was designed to maximize light and air within the residential units with nearly all windows being floor-to-ceiling and operational. The interior program focuses on using low energy, individually controlled LED lighting, energy and water efficient appliances, and integrated building systems. Outdoor space is provided by way of private terraces and a landscaped, recreational rooftop with a full kitchen and fire pit, open to residents. Canopies at the building entrance are also landscaped and the amenity spaces are filled with plants to create year-round visual interest and celebrate the building's proximity to the historic flower district.
