Bathrooms are done in Bottocino marble with soaking tubs. The Vanguard Chelsea offers an array of amenities and building services.

The 4,000-square-foot landscaped terrace is a peaceful refuge from city life with lovely city views. The residents-only fitness center and aerobics room is state-of-the-art in every way, as is the WiFi-wired conference facility.


The Vanguard Chelsea is also steps to several subway stops including the 1, F, V, R, and W trains, making the rest of the city a quick trip away and the morning commute a cinch. The building is within walking distance to the high-profile clubs and restaurants of the Meatpacking District and the western reaches of the neighborhood, but it’s also not far from the transit hub of 34th Street, where you’ll find Penn Station, and a short walk away, Port Authority. Chelsea is one of the hottest residential neighborhoods around – it offers tree-lined streets packed with beautiful brownstones, it’s a short walk from the West Side Highway and the newly constructed Highline Park, and it’s chock full of galleries, restaurants, bars and boutiques.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

The Vanguard Chelsea offers beautiful, spacious apartments and a great location in the heart of Chelsea. Apartments aren’t dirt cheap, but they’re not outrageously priced. Given the building’s proximity to a variety of different modes of public transit to get both in and out of the city, the rents are quite reasonable. The location is a big selling point of The Vanguard Chelsea, which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from attractions like The Frying Pan at Pier 66, the sports activities of the Chelsea Piers, and a variety of bars, boutiques and galleries. If you’re looking for reasonably priced and nicely finished Chelsea apartments, The Vanguard Chelsea is a great choice.
