Welcome back, old friend! We consigned Chelsea's Carriage House to the arrested development files in 2009, when the parking garage-to-condos conversion faced a lawsuit from its lenders. But the project got new permits a few months ago, and it's finally on the market (with four listings live so far) and ready for the Development Du Jour treatment. The building has parking for buyers to purchase?as befits a former parking garage?a part-time doorman, and a shared rooftop with gas grill and outdoor kitchen.
The unit interiors?with custom Italian cabinetry and white oak hardwood flooring, according to the press materials?were designed by interior designer Gustavo Martinez. And speaking of custom design touches, the building's exterior has custom flower boxes "with filigree fabricated by Milgo Bufkin, makers of the iconic LOVE sculpture on West 55th Street." Ah, but are they self-irrigating?
