The Dream Downtown is a looming behemoth that sinks its circle-themed footprint deep in the heart of Chelsea. The metallic facade is punctuated by portholes that look like the windows of Captain Nemo’s would-be space vessel; a generous smattering of ellipses echo throughout, including bedroom walls and the subtle tiling of the narrow pool – a refreshing oasis on unbearable summer days.

Ample public space is a priority here, which takes the shape of several cocktail lounges and restaurants that attract weekenders in the know.
