Exterior work is finishing up on Maverick, a pair of connected 20-story residential buildings at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Designed by DXA Studio and developed by HAP Investments, the 162,834-square-foot property stands at almost 250 feet tall and consists of 87 condominiums, and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The site is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues at 215 West 28th Street. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing and Fredrik Eklund’s and John Gomes’ Eklund | Gomes team, with Alex Lundqvist as the sales director are handling sales and marketing of the units, which just launched this month. Available one-bedrooms start at $1.3 million, and two-bedrooms at $1.995 million. Prices for three and four-bedroom residences are available upon request.
Recent photos show the buildings’ charcoal and white curtain wall panels entirely in place. The construction crane is fully removed and nearly all of the large windows are installed.
Select homes feature Juliette balconies, private outdoor spaces and gardens across the buildings setbacks.
The ground-floor frontage has also seen progress with the glass and envelope reaching down to the sidewalk, which is still temporarily blocked off to pedestrian traffic.
The below image looking up from the dividing line highlights the uniform design of the fenestration. Sculpted trapezoidal canopies protrude from each of the wide ground-floor cutouts in the perimeter wall.
Drawing from the Flower District, Maverick will feature lush landscaping from the flower-lined Sun Lounge at the Rooftop Lounge and Cabana Park to individual gardens and terraces on the building’s setback.
Both buildings come right up to the sidewalk; their walls flush with the two abutting neighbors.
The geometric surface of Maverick’s black and white curtain wall creates an interesting contrast with the traditional New York architecture that surrounds it, buildings clad in red brick and stone masonry. The structure brings a modern touch to the block, which also features Skidmore, Owings & Merrill‘s 28 & 7 at the corner along Seventh Avenue.
Residential amenities will span three floors and over 12,000 square feet and include a 24-hour attended lobby, a residential library with a fireplace, a children’s imagination room, a Swim & Wellness Collection with a 60-foot-long mosaic indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a meditation room with a Himalayan salt wall, treatment rooms, a fitness center, a rooftop Cabana Park with chaise lounges, a fire pit and an al fresco kitchen, bicycle storage, and indoor parking available for purchase. The closest subway is the 1 train at the 28th Street station directly to the east along Seventh Avenue, while the A, C, E, 2, and 3 trains are also nearby at Pennsylvania Station, six blocks to the north.
Each of the 87 residences feature abundant natural light that enters through oversized tilt-and-turn windows, ceiling heights that extend up to 10 feet, and the use of natural materials such as seven-inch European white oak flooring.
All of the kitchens feature custom white oak cabinetry by Scavolini, oil-rubbed bronze metal surrounds, White Fantasy marble leathered finish countertops and backsplashes, Dornbracht mounted platinum matte faucets. Every home has an integrated Miele appliance package which includes a wine fridge.
Primary bathrooms are clad in Stellar White honed marble with a chevron mosaic black porcelain accent wall. They include a custom designed white oak vanity with oil-rubbed bronze legs, a custom mirrored medicine cabinet with lighting surrounds, and Dornbracht platinum matte fittings throughout. Most residences feature a free-standing bathtub or an oversized soaking tub with a separate glass-enclosed shower and radiant heat flooring. Secondary bathrooms feature Woodgrain Silver honed marble walls with Gioia Venato honed marble tub aprons or shower surrounds, Oyster matte porcelain tile floors, white oak vanities, and Dornbracht platinum matte fittings throughout. Powder rooms are styled with Misty Black granite stone, suede Venetian plaster walls, rubbed bronze accents, and Dornbracht brushed Durabrass fittings.
Below is an extensive collection of newly released interior and exterior renderings that show typical residential interiors and the expansive amenity spaces.
Maverick looks like it should finish construction later this year, and residents should also be able to move in at the end of this year.
