residents have begun to move into zaha hadid’s first residential building in new york at 520 west 28th street as the development nears completion. comprising 39 unique residences and high-end amenities, the building is characterized by dynamic curves and continuous lines. the distinctive hand-rubbed metal façade and dynamic curves seamlessly integrate interior and exterior and sits directly on the high line, at the heart of west chelsea.

the project is being developed by related companies, and is slated for completion this year. a short walking distance from hudson yards to the north, the zaha hadid-designed condo building stands out as a sculptural ‘work of art’ in the emerging neighborhood of west chelsea. other exciting projects in the area includes the ‘high line nine’ cultural initiative, which will see exhibition spaces pop-up beneath the elevated park, and heatherwick studio’s urban landmark, ‘vessel’. the architecturally-rich and diverse district serves as a dynamic setting for the new residence.

loft-like residences are individually crafted, each with hadid’s signature style woven into the design. ‘the interiors integrate seamlessly into the sculpted nature of the building’s exterior, creating one monumental piece of art,’ explain the developers.

 

prices range from $4,975,000 USD, for a 2 bedroom residence, up to $25 million for a duplex 4 bedroom unit. occupants will have access to state-of-the art amenities including a reservable lounge and entertainment suite, a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a fitness center, 75-foot swimming pool, a private IMAX theater, and an automated valet. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
