As the blocks surrounding The High Line continue to see plans made for one new development after another, a block-spanning site stretching from 527 West 27th Street to 528 West 28th Street is closing in on completion. Named “Jardim,” the project is being designed by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, and today, YIMBY has a look at the north building, which has now topped-out.
Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development are developing Jardim, and Pizzarotti is the firm charged with its construction. As YIMBY reported back in 2015, the two buildings will have a combined 90,000 square feet of residential space, to be divided between 36 generously sized condominiums averaging over 2,500 square feet apiece. Both will stand 11 floors to their rooftops.
The project sits directly adjacent to the Zaha Hadid-designed 520 West 28th Street, which obscures Jardim somewhat from The High Line. Nevertheless, the building should still have decent views of Hudson Yards to the north, and the growing Meatpacking District skyline to the south, which will soon be dominated by the BIG Architects-designed 76 Eleventh Avenue.
As for Jardim, completion is likely in the next year or so.
