Ralph Thomas Walker, who was hailed in The New York Times as the “architect of the century,” designed Walker Tower, which was completed in 1929. It has an art-deco exterior design motif and around 50 luxury condos.
Walker Tower is a name imbued with history. Originally called The Verizon Building, an Art-Deco style skyscraper designed by famed architect Ralph Walker, the Chelsea high-rise is now one the most sought-after modern condominiums in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. With pre-war detail that is absent from any contemporary designs, Walker Tower is the ideal combination of classic style with the modern comforts that define luxury New York apartments.
The building’s elaborate brick façade has been painstakingly restored, as has the Art Deco ornamentation that Ralph Walker made famous through architectural masterpieces such as One Wall Street and the Barclay-Vesey Building.
