Built in 2003, designed by SHoP architects, and named for the "porterhouse" cut of steak in a nod to the nearby Meatpacking District, this Chelsea condominium represents one of the boldest Manhattan residential designs to emerge in the 21st century. A relatively small conversion'actually an expansion of an industrial building to condominium apartments'the project also breaks new ground in its very unusual facade lighting. The base of the building is a yellow-brick Renaissance Revival warehouse structure originally erected in 1905. The startling new residence sits at its top: A dark zink-facaded "box" featuring vertical lighting elements'most of which are as large as some of its windows'that become, in context, very visible beacons. The lighting elements and windows almost resemble lines of barcode.The building, which has a full-time doorman, has 5 one-bedroom apartments, 13 two-bedroom apartments, 3 three-bedroom apartments and a four-bedroom duplex with a private rooftop deck. This prime Chelsea location is near the Hudson River Park with its walking and bike paths, dog runs and green spaces as well as the newly-opened High Line Park and Chelsea Piers recreation center, and at the center of the neighborhood's seemingly endless collection of of-the-moment restaurants, clubs and art galleries.
