One of the most attractive contemporary buildings in Chelsea, the Caroline was designed by Richard Cook & Associates and Costas Kondylis and is notable for its rooftop pergolas and its nice proportions.
The 20-story building is on the southeast corner of the Avenue of the Americas, and was developed by Pan Am Equities. It also has an address of 51 West 22nd Street and has a marquee entrance.
The building houses the city's largest New York Health & Racquet Club, has a large courtyard with a formal European-style garden on the fourth floor, and has a garage, bicycle storage, a pet concierge, valet services, some terraces and balconies, and central climate control. It also has floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in closets and allows pets.
Its retail tenants include Outback Restaurant and Best Buy and it is convenient to the Ladies' Mile Historic District and Madison Square Park.
It has a wood-paneled lobby with a concierge and a roof deck.
The building replaced a parking lot and the site had once been home to the Booth Theater designed by Renwick & Sands in 1869 and then to a department store for James T. McCreery that was demolished in 1975.
