As one of the most exciting upcoming developments to flank the High Line, details for Brazilian avant-garde architect Isay Weinfeld's project the Jardim have been somewhat sketchy. A small collection of renderings have been spotted by YIMBY, including one of those worthless black-and-white massing diagram that tells us very little about the eventual structure.
Thankfully, YIMBY managed to get their hands on some real drawings filed for environmental applications, which give us a much better idea of how the completed building will look. The Jardim—which is Portuguese for "garden"—seems to live up to its name, as the rendering suggests the centerpiece will be the massive, private garden located between the project's two structures. Each of the 36 units will have floor-to-ceiling windows, and, as reported before, there will also be parking, an indoor pool, a gym, a massage room, a children's playroom, private storage, and bike storage.
The Jardim is being developed by Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group, who bought the through-block site between 27th and 28th streets last year for $45 million. It's Isay Weinfeld's very first project in New York City.
