The High Line

Varied Built Character
West Chelsea contains buildings of diverse character. The primary building forms include three to five-story walkup residential buildings along Tenth Avenue and large loft buildings along the avenues and midblocks. Large, tower buildings are located immediately adjacent to West Chelsea in the Fulton and Chelsea/Elliot Houses and London Terrace developments. Other dominant building types include lower-scale garage and auto-repair facilities as well as open, surface parking lots.
