A new Chelsea housing lottery will make 17 brand-new apartments available to qualified, selected applicants. Located at 211 W 29th St., Flow Chelsea is a new, 24-story passive house apartment complex with studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom layouts.

According to ZH Architects, passive house construction “includes continuous filtered air, triple-glazed windows to reduced street noise, and an overall lower consumption of energy for the entire building.”
