Chelsea’s food options just got elevated to a whole new plane with the recently opened European-style open air food market at the Chelsea Triangle on 9th Street between West 14th and 15th Street. What could be better than picking up fresh cheese, madeleines, organic pasta and meats, artisanal baguettes, and more all in one place? They even received special permission to install the exact same awnings as those used at the Paris street markets, so it feels like an authentic bit of France in the middle of Chelsea. A short walk south from Citizen, the market is open Fridays and Saturdays through November 24th and is a perfect place to pick up supplies for a delicious homemade dinner at Chez Citizen!
Eco-Conscious Living in Chelsea
Translated from German, developer Anbau Enterprises’ company name means “to add on to a building,” an appropriate sentiment in a city where each vacant lot serves as a foundation onto which a new piece of the future is built. And whether they were transforming the former InterContinental into the luxury residences that today make up 110 Central Park South or constructing Harsen House, the Upper West Side’s first LEED-certified residential building, Anbau has taken its responsibility to the city seriously.
“Every addition we make is building our urban fabric,” says Barbara van Beuren, one half of the husband-and-wife team that founded Anbau. “It’s not about us; it’s about how a building interacts in an urban context.” Nowhere is that worldview more apparent than at their latest development, Citizen, at 124 West 23rd Street—a 16-story condominium that fits seamlessly into a historic neighborhood that has undergone a historic reinvention.
The announcement was made by Stephen L. Glascock and Barbara van Beuren, Anbau’s principals.
“We are proud to introduce Citizen and believe its unique attributes will resonate with a diverse range of potential buyers. Citizen establishes a new standard of urban living,” Glascock said.
