Prices Slip on Chelsea Condos


Who says you can't get a new-construction condo on the cheap in Chelsea? Well, maybe not exactly "cheap." (This is pricey, trendy Chelsea, after all.) But still, this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath apartment at the Chelsea Stratus (101 West 24th Street), supposedly the tallest condo in the neighborhood, has had two price changes, according to Streeteasy.com. The most recent slash was two days ago, lowering the asking by more than 20 percent to $2.88 million. If this floor plan's not to your liking, there are more than a dozen left on the market, all of which are outfitted with name-brand kitchen appliances (Fisher & Paykel, Sub-Zero), high-end finishes, and other de rigueur luxuries. Par for the condo course, the building's larded with goodies like a wine cellar, billiards room, and indoor basketball court, too. —S. Jhoanna Robledo
