Located at 261 West 25th Street, the Condo Features Tailored, Luxurious Finishes created by the City’s Top Craftsmen
On one of Chelsea’s most picturesque tree-lined blocks, The Naftali Group, acclaimed development group behind 182 West 82nd and 234 East 23rd Street, has launched sales at The Seymour, a new 12-story apartment building with 49 luxury condominium residences, with rich interior finishes, lounge spaces and boutique hotel-inspired amenities.
The Manhattan developer has enhanced The Seymour with modern character and a nod to its past: It is named after the “Seymour Club,” a historic club run by New York’s 18th governor, Horatio Seymour, from the late-1800’s, once located on the site. Horatio Seymour is also the namesake for Horatio Street in the West Village a few blocks from the site. “We believe in honoring the history of the block and the neighborhood,” said Miki Naftali, Founder and CEO of the Naftali Group. “We worked incredibly hard to create a very special residence that is both luxuriously modern in its finishes and timeless at the same time.”
To accomplish that, Naftali worked with an elite team of specialists to create a building that is unique in the marketplace. Architect Goldstein Hill & West created an authentic, brick-and-metal façade that embodies the neighborhood’s rich heritage and charm, showcased by large floor-to-ceiling casement windows that let light fill the apartments. The lobby and amenities are designed by McGinley Design, with residential finishes byRottet Studio.
“The design of the interiors is tailored and refined,” said Naftali. “We worked with the best craftsmen and designers and collaborated to create homes that have great attention to detail.” With wire brushed solid oak floors and the highest quality finishes, residences at The Seymour are inviting and comfortable, with incredible light and views through floor-to-ceiling casement windows. The residences, comprised of one, two and three-bedrooms, range from 720 square feet to 2,029 square feet. Prices start at $1.2 million.
The kitchens in The Seymour combine meticulous attention to detail and beautiful workspaces. From the warm, rift cut oak cabinetry to the handstitched, leather wrapped hardware and Calcutta Gold backsplash, these extraordinary designs marry the finest materials with Bertazzoni, Miele and SubZero appliances.
“This building has what today’s buyers want: history and character combined with modern indoor- and outdoor-amenities in a hot neighborhood,” said Alexa Lambert, of Stribling Marketing Associates, the exclusive sales and marketing firm. “The Seymour has a story that will grab the attention of first-time and seasoned buyers and leave them captivated.”
Residents at The Seymour will have access to bespoke amenities. Centered around a herringbone brick courtyard, the amenities include a state-of-the art fitness center bathed in natural light, and a resident’s lounge with a fireplace, a billiards table, bar and a separate screening lounge. Also available for purchase is a private roof-top cabana with views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline. The building will also feature a full time doorman and concierge service as well as individual private storage units and bicycle storage.
