Far West Chelsea No Longer Seems So Far or So West. Discuss.

Long before everyone started buzzing loudly about redeveloping the High Line, this far western flank of Chelsea was already gaining steam, especially among artists attracted to the burgeoning gallery scene. Even in this unpredictable housing market, the creative and residential inflow continues. Fans of the area say it’s the next meatpacking district; it certainly gives off a similarly charming and rakish vibe heightened by the cobblestone streets and industrial warehouses dotting the landscape. The similarities mean prices will likely grow prohibitive as its profile rises. Already, swanky condos such as 555 West 23rd Street and Loft 25 are demanding top dollar. For now, however, properties here — co-ops, condos, and townhouses — are still within somewhat decent reach for would-be homeowners. How long this will last is anyone’s guess.
