Buyers at JDS Development Group and Largo’s swanky Art Deco-inspired condo The Fitzroy can let out a collective sigh of relief: Four and a half years after launching sales, closings have finally begun at the High Line-adjacent building.

The news comes with new photos that confirm the building’s 14 sprawling condos are approximately as lovely as the renderings promised long ago, with moody Roman and Williams interiors to match. The lobby, which has been photographed finished for the first time, will also appeal to fans of brooding glamor.

The half- and full-floor condos feature direct elevator entry, ceiling heights of nearly 11 feet, oak casement double-pane windows, and radiant heated solid oak floors in a chevron pattern.

The photogenic kitchens are done up with Smallbone of Devizes copper backsplashes, Fiore de Pesco marble countertops, black enameled Lacanche ranges, and Waterworks fixtures custom-designed by Roman and Williams in copper. All condos also feature a separate service entrance. (No word on whether it will primarily be used by the career copper polisher the building may or may not come to employ.)

The copper accents carry through to the master bathroom, where there’s a custom William Holland Cuprosa Bateau copper soaking tub and more custom-design Waterworks copper fixtures alongside Paonazzo marble walls and Nero Marquina marble floors.

Available condos in the building range from a Roman and Williams-furnished two-bedroom plus a home office asking $5.3 million to a full-floor four-bedroom, five and a half bath condo with two terraces seeking $21 million.

One of the first condos to close in the building is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom that netted $6.4 million or about $2,737 per square foot, one of the highest prices paid for a condo per square foot in West Chelsea. According to StreetEasy, the average asking price per square foot in the neighborhood is $2,122.

Roman and Williams also designed the building’s exterior with a standout green terracotta facade that was manufactured in upstate New York. Along with the exterior’s custom oak and copper finishes, the building oozes classic materiality in a neighborhood increasingly dominated by glass.
