A woman was found dead in the basement of a luxury condo building near the High Line in Manhattan on Friday, police said.

Officers responding to a 911 call around 2:40 p.m. went into the basement of the +art building at 540 W. 28th St. in Chelsea, where they found the woman’s body, police said.

A worker at the building found the woman’s body in a trash compactor, said a police source.

The woman was caught on video entering the building Thursday night and may have been intoxicated, said a police source who added that the woman did not live in the building.

Rents for one-bedroom apartments at +art were listed Friday for $5,500 a month. The Street Easy website lists for sale at +art a two-bedroom condo for $2.48 million, and a one-bedroom for $1.275 million.

The woman found in the basement was pronounced dead at the scene.

“There were detectives on every floor. They were asking if we heard a domestic dispute last night,” said a neighbor who did not want to give their name.

The city Medical Examiner will determine a cause of death, police said.
