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.
Standing next to Zaha Hadid’s first residential project in New York City at 520 West 28th Street, the Isay Weinfeld designed complex, dubbed “The Jardim,” has gotten both its brick and glass facade up as seen from the High Line. Developed by Centaur Properties and built by Pizzarotti, the project spans the width of the block from West 27th to West 28th Street, with two towers separated by a private landscaped garden and outdoor courtyard for residents.
As the blocks surrounding The High Line continue to see plans made for one new development after another, a block-spanning site stretching from 527 West 27th Street to 528 West 28th Street is closing in on completion. Named “Jardim,” the project is being designed by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, and today, YIMBY has a look at the north building, which has now topped-out.
Construction is now five stories above street level on the northern portion of the 11-story, 36-unit mixed-use complex under development at 528 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 96,162-square-foot project, dubbed Jardim, will boast 11-story components along both the West 27th and West 28th street fronts. The tower portions will connect via a single-story base, which will include 6,490 square feet of retail space. The residential units, beginning on the second floor, will be condominiums and should average 2,489 square feet apiece. Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group are the developers. Sao Paulo, Brazil-based Isay Weinfeld is the design architect, while Hell’s Kitchen-based SBLM Architects is the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
YIMBY previously reported that construction began on the through-block project spanning from 527 West 27th Street to 520 West 28th Street back in January, and we followed up with a partial reveal from the construction documents later that month. Now we have the full renderings for the building, dubbed Jardim, which is being designed by Isay Weinfeld. Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group are developing the project, and Pizzarotti IBC is the builder.
