The Chelsea Fireproof Storage Warehouse is a distinctive early 20th-century warehouse designed in a style inspired by progressive Central European architecture that is rare in New York City. Unlike earlier warehouses made for the purpose of commercial storage, this massive, 9-story building was designed to provide attractive fireproof storage space for household goods. Six large arched bays stretch the length of the building; these were intended for truck access. The integrated design of the facade resembles a patterned textile, with multi-colored brick laid in intricate patterns and ornamental cast-stone panels inspired by Secessionist and Jugenstil architecture.
