A Bit of Sugary History in Chelsea – 120 Eleventh Avenue, PH-6/7B

By Linecity, December 31, 2019

This glorious multi-level penthouse sits atop the Lifesaver Lofts building at the southeast corner of West 20th Street and Eleventh Avenue and looks directly out upon Chelsea Piers and the Hudson River beyond.

The Lifesaver Lofts, situated in the heart of the West Chelsea Gallery District, offers a boutique condo with a bit of sugary history.  This seven-story structure was home to the mint products company where Lifesaver mints were manufactured between 1913 and 1916. In 2010 the building was converted to condominium ownership and two floors were added atop the original five-story brick structure.  There are just 10 loft residences in total, two each on floors two through six.  

Penthouse 6/7B at 120 Eleventh Avenue is a grand apartment in both scale and features.  This contemporary loft offers more than 2900 SF of jaw-dropping interior space and just under 1900 SF of private outdoor space.  While the building itself has historic charm, there is nothing prewar about this penthouse residence. Due to its deep setback, the modernity of the design is pretty much obscured from the street elevation. 

A key-locked elevator opens up onto the main level where you are greeted by a 30×25 great room with 18-foot-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the private roof terrace. The kitchen covers such a wide expanse, you feel like you’re in a world-class restaurant. It is open to the living area with an extended island for casual dining.  On the same level, the master bedroom suite offers a five-fixture bath, a tremendous walk-in closet and direct access to the terrace.  

Climb the elegant glass paneled staircase to the mezzanine level and an open den floats above the Great Room.  This casual space is awash with light and offers a gas fireplace for when the weather turns. There are two additional bedrooms on this level and one five-fixture bath which is shared via entry from both rooms. 

Other features of the loft include central air, electric solar shades, a laundry room and three walk-in-closets. The building provides a part-time doorman as well as a virtual doorman during off hours.  Pets are allowed. 

The price on this special apartment is $5,500,000, about $1,900 per interior square foot.  The property is being represented by Jennifer Ireland Kubis, Chris Kann and Robby Browne of The Corcoran Group. For full details view on Linecity.com.
