The first two units at Adam Gordon's condo for art collectors just hit the market (h/t BuzzBuzz). There are only eight total at 560 West 24th Street, and the ones available now are a third-floor full-floor four-bedroom for $7.25 million and, oh, the penthouse, a duplex with about 4BR/4.5BA 4,500 square feet with four separate outdoor spaces. It's asking $18 million. What makes them so well-suited for deep-pocked buyers with big art collections? Walls reinforced with plywood to support heavy picture frames, ceilings lined with small white lights, gallery-style, some tilted walls to easily display paintings, and extra storage space for art that just doesn't make the cut for wall display.
With a laundry list of successful redevelopments under his belt, Gordon was remarkably hush-hush about this nine-story residence in West Chelsea, which is his first ground-up project. It also marks another collaboration with architect Steven Harris. Construction is proceeding at a swift clip, and occupancy is expected for late this year.
