The apartments pay homage to the building’s former life

Name/address: Inkwell, 520 West 45th Street

Developer: Gotham Organization

Size: 5 stories, 18 apartments

Prices: from $1.75 million to $2.8 million

Sales and Marketing: Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing

The five-story building at 520 West 45th Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, once home to elementary school P.S. 51, has a new life as Inkwell, an 18-apartment condo developed by Gotham Organization. The development is comprised of just 16 roughly 1,300-square-foot two-bedroom condos that begin asking around the $1.75 million mark, and two 2,000-square-foot three-bedroom apartments that boast their own private gardens and are asking from $2.8 million.

Much of the building’s past life has been intertwined into its apartments in a classy yet nostalgic way. Each of the 18 apartments have interiors designed by AvroKO and are bedecked with custom cabinetry, oversized windows, and details that harken to the former elementary school like adorable shoe cubby holes, chalkboards, and sliding library ladders.

Inkwell’s amenities include an outdoor terrace, gym, and storage space.
