West Chelsea’s Lantern House condos bring together artistic design details, enviable outdoor spaces and an exclusive amenity collection

Integrated amidst New York City’s beloved High Line park and only steps away from the waterfront, Lantern House stands as a testament to high-design and luxurious living in West Chelsea. The 180-unit condominium residence has one of the most unique façades in the neighborhood, designed by renowned Heatherwick Studios to include custom masonry with hand-laid bricks and the firm’s instantly recognizable modern interpretation of double bay windows. Residents get the benefit of exquisite natural light filtering in from these unique windows, as well as enhanced views of the city that create a three-dimensional effect in every room. With lush vistas and easy access to the High Line, Hudson River Park, Little Island and more, Lantern House blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living and incorporates the industrial yet bold spirit of the neighborhood.

Inside Lantern House, everything from the ornate lobby entrance to the lavish interior design details reflects March and White Design’s refined yet relaxed vision of home. Ranging from one-bedroom to four-bedrooms, each home contains a warm and inviting color palette that welcomes residents and complements the exterior’s architecture. Residents can choose from either caramel or cocoa stains for their oak wood flooring and cabinetry throughout, which include contrasting bronze accents that add depth to the overall design. The alluring textures showcased in key elements such as the herringbone flooring (in select homes), fluted oak cabinetry and polished marble not only add beauty to each residence, but they also play off of the ample sunlight and lighting fixtures, no matter the time of day. Additionally, the penthouse collection residences include fireplaces, full-height corner bay windows and private terraces with nearly 360-degree views of the city.

Whether Lantern House residents seek energizing or calming experiences, they don’t need to venture far—over 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces create a wealth of possibilities. Between the property’s two buildings and nestled underneath the High Line, a unique private landscaped park known as the “secret garden” provides an ideal respite any time of the day. The park was curated by Hollander Design and features plenty of plants, seating and tables for relaxation and gathering. 22 floors up, the sun-drenched roofdeck features eastern views of the city, a fire pit, a barbecue area and more for charming guests or for enjoying solo. With state-of-the-art equipment curated by Equinox, the fitness center includes a private Pilates room, floor-to-ceiling mirrors and tubular wall lights selected to supply ideal visibility while working out. The 75-foot indoor pool is situated in a double-height space featuring plentiful natural light, including a sauna, shower and private yoga and meditation room. For kids, there is the fully-stocked playroom and adjoining terrace, and for adults, the game room comes complete with a pool table, foosball table, billiards, shuffleboard and private theater. To wind down, the chic library lounge welcomes residents with its cozy fireplace and the dining suite with bar allows for enhanced entertaining and events.
