Related Companies has commissioned Zaha Hadid Architects to design an 11-storey residential condominium adjacent to the High Line at 520 West 28th Street in Chelsea, New York City.
The project marks Hadid’s first commission in the city and continues Related’s long history of partnering with world-class architects and designers. 520 West 28th Street’s design captures the richness of its vibrant and historic urban context. A fascinating interplay between the city and the High Line has created a powerful urban dynamic among the elevated park and surrounding streetscape.
This same dynamic is evident within the design; an interconnected chevron separates and merges the building’s two distinct zones, further establishing this contextual relationship and giving each residence the highest degree of originality.
The 11-storey development will feature approximately 37 residences of up to 5,500 square feet with 11-foot ceilings, technological integration and tailored interiors. Designed with multiple elevator cores, a majority of the residences will have a private vestibule and entrance that adds to the intimacy of the building.
The double-height entrance lobby offers glimpses beyond to the residents’ communal spaces and outdoor garden. Large terraces, courtyard, indoor pool and spa, entertainment space and playrooms give additional opportunities to relax and entertain.
