“We are proud to officially launch sales at The Cortland, a truly design-driven building that represents a remarkable collaboration between two icons, Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Olson Kundig,” said Andrew Orchulli, senior vice president at Related Companies. “The classic exterior, modern interiors, and hospitality-driven amenities will deliver a living experience that is only available at The Cortland.”

Rising along West Street across from Hudson River Park, The Cortland’s detail façade will features a mix of LaSalle limestone, bronze metal detailing, and over one million handmade and hand-laid bricks. A brick motor court will be accessible via a limestone archway, and will provide around-the-clock access to on-site private parking. The double-height lobby features Italian marble, a bespoke Olson Kundig-designed kinetic wheel operated fireplace, and a bronze and onyx light fixture by German Sculptor Markus Haase commissioned exclusively for The Cortland.

“Our design for The Cortland expresses the yin and yang of old and new, established and modern,” said Tom Kundig FAIA, RIBA, owner and design principal of Olson Kundig. “Robert A.M. Stern Architects’ design for The Cortland’s exterior relates to the neighborhood’s historic architectural language, while the interiors provide a complementary, updated feel. By focusing on materiality and craft, and incorporating an eclectic sensibility, the design plays on the creative and bohemian nature of West Chelsea’s art scene.”

Occupancy is slated for summer 2022.

    Including design of different views, but all live in a beautiful society. In addition to text on the building, and residential have right to do so; in which services: Thank you.

  2. Where’s the RAMSA Fan Club? Best pic is details of motor court—it’s nice!

  3. Plopping a cookie-cutter UES building to inventive Chelsea. Ugh.

  4. The lead photo is a work of art!

  5. I resent reference “West Chelsea” First- all of Chelsea is West: from 5th Ave to Hudson River – calling this area is carving out a part of the neighborhood as new…it is new development in a historic neighborhood
