Work is wrapping up on Maverick, a 20-story two-building residential development at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Designed by DXA Studio and developed by HAP Investments, the 250-foot-tall reinforced concrete structures yield a combined 162,834 square feet and 87 condominium units, as well as 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing and Fredrik Eklund’s and John Gomes’ Eklund | Gomes team are responsible for sales and marketing for the residences, with Alex Lundqvist as the sales director in charge. The property is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues across from the Fashion Institute of Technology campus, in a stretch of the street that has seen a tremendous amount of vertical transformation with new offices and homes being built in the vicinity.
Since our last update in July, the finishing touches have concluded at the ground level, including the installation of a shrubbery-topped canopy over the white eastern portion of the development. The sidewalk scaffolding still covers the black western end, but should be removed soon.
The following photos show the details in the geometric façade paneling system, which creates interesting plays of light and shadow throughout the day.
Maverick residences come with kitchens featuring custom white oak cabinetry by Scavolini, oil-rubbed bronze metal surrounds, White Fantasy marble leathered finish countertops and backsplashes, and Dornbracht mounted platinum matte faucets. Homes will also include integrated Miele appliance packages, which include a wine fridge.
Primary bathrooms are clad in Stellar White honed marble with a chevron mosaic black porcelain accent wall, as well as 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. The majority of the units have a free-standing bathtub or an oversized soaking tub with a separate glass-enclosed shower and radiant heat flooring. Secondary bathrooms have 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.
The following renderings depict a typical condominium and the 12,000 square feet of amenity spaces, which span three floors inside Maverick. These include a 24-hour attended lobby, a residential library with a fireplace, and a children’s “imagination room.” A Swim & Wellness Collection features a 60-foot-long mosaic indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a meditation room with a Himalayan salt wall, treatment rooms, and a fitness center. On the rooftop is a Cabana Park with chaise lounges, a fire pit, and an al fresco kitchen. Other amenities include bicycle storage and indoor parking available for purchase.
The interiors for Maverick should not be too far behind, and we can expect construction to fully conclude this spring.
