One of the elements that set 21W20 apart from many other buildings is each of its thirteen residences is a full-floor home. There are nine homes with 1,302 square feet, along with four other penthouses. Residents get to enjoy beautiful views, as well as all the benefits that go along with calling the Flatiron District home.
Gale International is the development firm behind 21W20. Gale International has roots that go all the way back to 1922, and the firm has successfully completed huge projects everywhere from Connecticut to South Korea. For the architecture of the building, Gale selected Beyer Blinder Belle.
Because this firm was founded during the start of the US urban renewal movement, their design aesthetic emphasizes the social integrity of communities and institutions. For the building’s interior, Mr. Architecture + Decor used their team of twenty talented designers to find the right match between form and function. The firm’s aesthetic “is characterized by diversity and unified by an essential clarity.”
21W20 spans a total of fifteen floors. For the exterior, Beyer Blinder Belle took a very modern approach to the building’s architecture. The highlight of the building is the three penthouse units on top, which each have a private terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows that can illuminate the night skyline. The exterior is also defined by a mixture of stone, glass and blackened stainless steel.
Each of the full-floor residences has 6″ solid fit white oak hardwood floors in the living, dining and kitchen areas. The homes come with a washer and dryer, as well as stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. And both the master and en-suite bathrooms have Zuma soaking tubs.
In addition to a 24/7 doorman, 21W20’s amenities include a garden, available private storage units, and a pet washroom. And because the building boasts a 421-a tax abatement, purchasing one of these units can be a very wise financial investment.
There are currently two different units available. The first is Unit 4, which is located on the fifth floor. It has 1,302 square feet of space and features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The asking price for this residence is $2.748M.
The second available residence is Unit 7. Located on the eighth floor, this home also has 1,302 square feet of space, as well as two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Since it is a few floors higher, its asking price is a little higher at $2.975M.
In addition to everything the building has to offer, residents of 21 West 20th Street will be able to enjoy living just off of 5th Avenue in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. This district has been called “the ideal Manhattan neighborhood.” The reason is while it’s urban, it still has a special intimacy. It also provides excellent access to all kinds of local and global fares, including shopping, entertainment, dining, and an excellent nightlife.
