With The High Line’s residential development boom entering its twilight, construction is just about complete on Related’s new condominium building at 520 West 28th Street, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The building, in the Western blocks of Chelsea, offers a truly refreshing take on residential architecture, and its sleek, futuristic design makes for an exciting new addition to the streetscape.
520 West 28th Street
Work is well underway to install the curtain wall on the 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building under development at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos taken by ILNY/NYConstructionPhoto (h/t Curbed NY). The building, encompassing 188,696 square feet, was designed by the late Zaha Hadid, who also fashioned the yet-to-be revealed design for another condominium project at 220 11th Avenue, two blocks south. At 520 West 28th Street, the ground floor will host 11,183 square feet of commercial-retail, followed by 39 condominiums on the floors above. On average, the apartments should measure 3,533 square feet. Amenities include a 75-foot-long pool, a private IMAX theater, a spa suite, an entertainment room, a fitness center, private residential storage space, a garden near the lobby, and an automated 11-car parking garage in the cellar. Related Companies is the developer and Ismael Leyva Architect is the architect of record. The structure topped out earlier this year and completion is expected later this year.
Last October, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building underway at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was five stories above street level. Today, the structure is roughly 10 stories in height and close to topping out, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. Glass façade is also being installed on the first four floors of the Zaha Hadid-design building. Retail space on the ground floor will measure 11,183 square feet in the 188,696 square-foot project. The condominium units on the floors above will average 3,533 square-foot apiece. Ismael Leyva Architects is the architect of record and completion is expected later this year.
Over the summer, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was just starting to climb above street level, and now Curbed has a slew of new exterior and interior renderings via the project’s teaser site. The building will be topped by a 6,391 square-foot triplex penthouse, and 11,180 square feet of retail space is planned on the ground floor. Zaha Hadid is designing the project, Hayes Davidson crafted the renderings, and completion is expected in late 2016.
Six months ago, foundation work was underway at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, where Related Companies is developing an 11-story, 39-condo-unit building. Now construction is up to the second floor, according to Curbed. Zaha Hadid is designing, and the nearly 149,000 square-foot building will include 11,180 square feet of commercial space, which will be broken into two retail units on the ground floor, according to Schedule A. Completion is expected in 2016.
