As is often the case with Hadid’s projects, 520 West 28th Street is equal parts art and architecture. Swooping curves composed of amorphous layers of glass and steel will allow for floor-to-ceiling windows in each of the 39 two- to five-bedroom residences. Interiors will feature plenty of signature Hadid style as well, with sculptural marble islands in the kitchens and curving walls throughout the building. Expected to hit the market this fall, the units will be priced from $4.65 million for a two-bedroom apartment to $50 million for the largest penthouse, and will include access to a wellness center and a sculpture garden.
Despite its futuristic shape, Hadid says 520 West 28th Street—her first permanent project in New York City—brings a measured integration to its West Chelsea surroundings. “I’ve always been fascinated by the High Line and its possibilities for the city,” she says. “The design engages with the city, while concepts of fluid spatial flow create a dynamic new living environment.”.
Zaha Hadid’s first permanent New York City project will bring a striking new shape to the High Line and surrounding West Chelsea neighborhood. Residents will enjoy panoramic views of the elevated park, as well as such interior design features as signature Zaha Hadid furnishings and polished Grigio Metallico marble floors.
