The Jardim at 527 West 27th Street is an upcoming 11-story residential complex in Chelsea. It stands adjacent to Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street project. The new property has already topped out and almost all the exterior work is finished, with only minor touches awaiting completion on the ground level and top floors. Meanwhile, the interiors of the 36 units are being fitted out, each averaging 2,500 square feet. The 90,000-square-foot undertaking is being designed by Isay Weinfeld and developed by Centaur Properties and Pizzarotti.
Views from the High Line and from Hudson Yards show the Jardim getting very close to the finish line.
The Jardim consists of two separate towers. The one that stands along West 28th Street will be called Jardim Norte, and will contain 29 units. It starts with a seven-story, red-colored brick facade with a setback on the eighth floor. Several protruding metal balconies jut out from the brick exterior. Above the future landscaped terrace will be an additional four stories with floor-to-ceiling glass panels arranged in a scattered pattern of square and rectangular frames. A flat roof parapet crowns the top.
The second building is called Jardim Sul, and is a thinner, rectangular tower standing isolated along West 27th Street. It has a mixture of red- and white-colored bricks and large, floor-to-ceiling glass panels for the units. There will be outdoor terraces and balconies, and two penthouses on the top two floors. Connecting the architecture and aesthetics of the two components is an outdoor courtyard with overhanging shrubs.
The Jardim should most likely finish before the end of the year.
