How was this building rated?

This 24-story building tower known as Walker Tower at 212 West 18th Street betweeb Seventh and Eighth Avenues in Chelsea was converted to 50 condominium apartments in 2012.  

It is named after Ralph Thomas Walker, the Art Deco-style architect whose other buildings include One Wall Street and the Barclay-Vesey Telephone Building at 140 West Street, two of Lower Manhattan’s masterpieces, and The Western Union Building at 60 Hudson Street. 

The lower 8 floors in the 1929 building house a Verizon switching station with an entrance on 17th Street. The residential entrance is through a small, two-story high wing on 18th Street. 

JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group undertook the conversion that was designed by Cetra/Ruddy and added four stories to the building and four thin spires atop the western end of the building, which was not an official city landmark.  

JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group's recent developments include 50 North 1st Street and 202 8th Street. Other Property Markets Group projects include 823 Park Avenue, 500 West End Avenue and 171 MacDougal Street.
