Chic in Chelsea: A Glam Walker Tower Apartment Asks $18.5M

Finished in 1929, Art Deco-style Walker Tower remains an iconic building of the world-famous NYC skyline. However, it has a new life and purpose than it did long ago, carefully renovated by architecture firm CentraRuddy with respect to its original design. That extensive 2013 process turned it into a luxury condominium, which the NY Daily News reports grabbed the attention of celebrity homebuyers such as Cameron Diaz and Blake Lively. With dazzling details reflecting its Roaring Twenties roots and sweeping views, can you blame them? Now, an upscale apartment on the 17th floor has listed ready to once again tempt affluent condo hunters.

Designed by architect Ralph Walker, the stunning Chelsea building has a prestigious legacy. Walker received several accolades throughout his career, a 1957 New York Times headline even named him the “Architect of the Century.” With such an extraordinary reputation, it’s no wonder Walker Tower units are particularly pricey.

Listed for $18.495 million, this elegant residence establishes a welcoming environment with floor-to-ceiling casement windows that showcase breathtaking vistas and allow natural light to pour. Around every corner, the interiors have a glamorous glint and dramatic moments that compliment the building’s Art Deco facade.

However, its style isn’t the only show-stopping aspect. In addition to this property’s nearly 4,000-square-feet of space, a new owner will have access to the building’s concierge, library lounge, fitness center, roof deck, and more desirable amenities.

Chris Poore of Brown Harris Stevens and Jonathan Hettinger of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom Walker Tower listing.
