The pace of development in Chelsea is such that you can't really blame us for missing a charming little conversion project like the Carriage House. But the former parking garage got a recent shout-out from a Curbed reader, and we promised we'd be back. Originally built in 1901, the building?at 159 West 24th Street (near Seventh Avenue)?was first used as a stable. Now it's 24 "loft residences" with eight parking spaces and, as our spotter mentioned, flower boxes marking the façade. Looks like the detailing came out pretty close to the rendering in this case, though we're a little early on checking out the ground floor. No shmancy sports cars yet, just dumpsters. Per the website, the on-site sales gallery is now open, but we didn't see the Citi Habitats listings online.
