Terrace envy at the Chelsea Stratus

click floor plan to enlarge

for rentWho wouldn't covet this brand new apartment with outdoor space that's bigger on its own than a large one bedroom apartment! This is a one of a kind, two bedroom at the new Chelsea Stratus. It's got an absolutely stunning, private, 844 square foot terrace. A brand new 1272 square foot, two bedroom, two bath apartment, with extra tall ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows— feels like a downtown penthouse loft, but with all the amenities of a white glove, concierge building. You'll have access to the residents' health club and there is private storage included in the deal. You will be the first person to live here, in this newly developed (2008), full service building.

reader comments:

im either missing something or no real estate broker knows how to do math. 21 feet x 13 feet ~ 270 square feet. Where in gods name did you get 844 from? It absolutely infuriates me the extent to which brokers inflate square footage numbers. This is among the most ridiculous ive ever seen.


Thanks for pointing that out. The dimensions on the drawing were incorrect. We endeavor to get every detail right, but we didn't catch that before it posted. The sponsor actually increased the terrace area in the delivered unit. It was a a typo picked up from an older drawing and our floor plan labels are now updated with the correct info. The good news for you is that it is no exaggeration that the terrace is 844 square feet—the gross dimensions provided by the owner are 25'-7" X 34'-10". Apologies for any confusion and please, let us know if you'd like to see it.


Hey, you have some grammatical errors.

It's = it is, you need to use "its", which is possessive--his, hers, theirs, its.

Then when you say "Its" at the beginning of the sentence, it should be "It's", it is.

In the first sentence get rid of the comma.

Also it should be "residents'", not "resident's", because it belongs to all of them, not just one.


I stand corrected. We had about a thousand people visiting this listing over the past couple of days, so its great that blogsphere just reaches out with helpful copy proofing too, anonymously. Anyone up for checking the rest of the site :-) Thanks!
