The website for Zaha Hadid's swooping condos along the High Line just transitioned from a staid teaser to a full site that showcases a handful of new renderings while touting everything from the building's finishes to its next-level amenities. (Sorry, no floorplans just yet.) The changeover signals the quiet sales launch of one of the most anticipated projects in the city. This doesn't mean it's time to hunker down and obsessively refresh StreetEasy; although the condos at 520 West 28th Street are officially up for grabs, their listings will be guarded by Corcoran Sunshine and doled out only to those who directly inquire. In other words, they're not private, but they're exclusive.
Prices for the 39 apartmentsor residences, in broker parlancestart at $4.95 million for a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom and top out at $50 million for the 6,391-square-foot triplex penthouse. The curvature of the building isn't exclusive to its facade; Hadid also handled the projects interiors, which are rendered as a seamless extension of its shell. Opalescent engineered paneled walls hide closets and conceal powder rooms. Support columns seamlessly flow into the 11-foot ceilings. Rounded floor-to-ceiling windowpanes allay every edge that the exterior may ostensibly have. There's hardly a right angle in the place.
Of course the building's finishes equal its design. Boffi co-created the kitchens, which include white marble, high-gloss millwork, and Gaggenau appliances. Master bathrooms include Boffi-designed eco-wood vanities, built-in mirrors with integrated lighting, freestanding tubs by Teuco Guzzini, and Dornbracht fittings. Many bedrooms will have private terraces with doors that glide open at the touch of a button. The building's three penthouses boast private elevators, fireplaces, and rooftop terraces complete with outdoor kitchens. The $50 million triplex penthouse has a sculptural custom-designed staircase.
Its amenities are as sumptuous. Residents at 520 West 28th Street will have access to the city's first private IMAX, and will be able to rent its hammam-style spa for private use. The building also has a 75-foot skylit saline swimming pool, a "wellness level" with a gym and cold-press juice bar (of course), a reservable lounge with an outdoor kitchen, and robot parking. Views from the L-shaped building will look toward Hudson Yards, the Hudson, and onto the High Line and a 2,500-square-foot planted sculpture deck with a work commissioned by developer Related Companies.
The project won't be complete for another 14 to 16 months, and with the building's guarded listings it seems like views into the finished product will be as difficult to come by as those of its starchitect herself. So now, enjoy.
