An exciting Manhattan neighborhood surrounds The Capitol at Chelsea, where
eclectic shopping, dining and entertainment are all in close proximity.
This beautiful full-service building provides residents with unmatched
services and amenities, including concierge services, a fitness center and
spectacular sundeck. Newly renovated apartments feature wood floors,
stainless steel kitchen appliances and marble baths.
I have lived here for 2 years. The elevators are mess. They never work. The management send periodic emails asking residents to be patient. They have closed off the roof multiple times for "renovations" and FISP. The gym was closed for a large majority of my living here too. Despite signing a contract and NOT getting what I signed up for, I am still paying full price. Unless you have no other options, DO NOT move here. You will be just as miserable and frustrated as the other residents.
Do not move here! The entire building is currently undergoing massive construction and so far it seems that nothing will be completed on schedule. Elevators never work, we've been taking the stairs due to long wait times and lines of people stretching to the lobby. Management is constantly making excuses as to why the elevators don't work. Additionally management is indifferent to all residents concerns about this ongoing, very disruptive construction. Furthermore we are paying for amenities that have not been available for almost a year. Rents are still sky high even though we are living in a noisy, dirty, eye sore of a construction zone. Please look elsewhere to rent in Chelsea.
It's a nice building with friendly representatives but is currently undergoing a lot of poorly managed construction. When all of the work is over I suspect the building will be extremely enjoyable again but until then I wouldn't necessarily advocate moving there.
As a current resident, I couldn't be more disappointed in Bozzuto's management of this building and my time here. I moved here in the spring of 2017, under the premise that construction would be ongoing through the first half of 2018, and it would have a limited impact on my day-to-day. Sadly none of this could be further from the truth. The schedule will be pushed back to AT LEAST 2019, but I would suspect it to last until 2020. The constant noise, the inconvenience to tenants, and management's seeming indifference, has made what was an exciting move into the building a complete nightmare instead.
First off, elevators are a constant issue. There are 4 elevator banks in the building, and in almost 1 year living here, never have all 4 been in operation simultaneously. Typically it's 2 or 3 (and sometimes only 1), which for a building with 300+ apartments, can be extraordinarily taxing on tenants. Long wait times, people getting stuck between floors and the fire dept having to be called, as well at the constant "fixing," are all sadly the norm.
Secondly the roof deck, which was remodeled recently and reopened for the summer of 2017, is nice. Great views, quality amenities, and a solid place to host friends and family. Sadly, management's planning of this was very poor, and the roof deck will now be closed until further notice. The closing is being blamed upon New York City mandated facade work, which if that is indeed the case, they couldn't foresee this coming?? It would be one thing if management was understanding and would agree to a lower monthly rent, due to the inconvenience and the inability to use this amenity we are being charged for. However they are unwilling to budge or negotiate due to the "new facilities about to be onboarded." The only new facility onboarded so far in my 1 year here? The gym, which you have to pay a $45 monthly fee to use. Incredibly frustrating and obtuse.
Maybe move here in 2021 once construction is done, definitely not now.
See previous comments. This place is a construction zone... Enter at your own risk if you want to way overpay for a terrible experience.
