Just two months before the first set of residents begin moving in, Zaha Hadid’s curvy High Line condo is finally offering us a look inside the building’s model homes. The first of the model homes, which also serve as the building’s sales galleries, is a four-bedroom condo spanning 4,500 square feet with interiors by Jennifer Post. The architect has also worked on interiors at 432 Park Avenue, 56 Leonard, and 30 Park Place, among others.
At the late Zaha Hadid’s building, Post decided to use white and muted shades in the four-bedroom and paired it with colorful works of contemporary art. The apartment offers views of the High Line and the Empire State Building, and is asking $15 million.
"I am usually the creative visionary behind both the architecture and interior design of a space,” Post said in a statement. “Here, I am respectfully creating a vision that coexists with the vision of one of architecture's greatest minds. This prompted me to really consider every move, every decision in a different, special way,” Post added reflecting on Hadid’s influence.
The second model home is a smaller 1,700-square-foot, two-bedroom unit asking $4.9 million. Interiors there were done by West Chin. Geared towards single people or couples, the apartment is Chin’s interpretation of a minimalist aesthetic, he said in a statement.
When we last checked in with 520 West 28th Street, the condo was being fitted with its glass facade. But fast forward eight months and the project is nearly complete. This 11-story West Chelsea development has a total of 39 apartments that range in price from $4.95 million to $50 million for a triplex penthouse.
Nearly two dozen apartments at the development are already in contract, according to StreetEasy, and the new model homes are likely to spur more sales at the condo before the opening.
