Zaha Hadid’s curved West Chelsea condo gets its first rental listings

Get an unadorned peek inside the late architect’s game-changing NYC condo

Closings at 520 West 28th Street, the swooping West Chelsea condo designed by the late Zaha Hadid, got underway just about a month ago, and now, the development has reached its inevitable next phase: the appearance of pricey rentals. As of this week, three of its apartments have hit the rental market, offering an unadorned look at these ultra-luxury residences.

And while the building’s futuristic exterior obviously impacts the look of these apartments—the curved windows that cover the facade bring that Space Age feel inside—there are also decorative touches within that have the Hadid touch. The kitchens, for instance, are the product of a collaboration between the architect and Boffi (known as the Cove kitchen), and feature a curved marble island that echoes the building’s shape.

Each apartment also has access to the building’s spate of extravagant amenities, which include an IMAX theater, a spa and fitness center (with a juice bar!), a pool, and common areas that open up onto the High Line. (Hey, if you’re paying many thousands of dollars per month, what else do you expect?)

So let’s take a look at the units themselves, shall we?

↑ First up is No. 31, which is listed with Ugo Russino at Warburg Realty. The two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom pad sits within the building’s distinctive curve, giving it a unique (some might say slightly quirky) floorplan, along with a balcony that overlooks the High Line. The 2,156-square-foot apartment has a large great room flanked by oversized windows; a large master suite with two closets and an en-suite bathroom; and a separate utility room with laundry. The asking price: a whopping $22,500/month. [Floorplan]

↑ Next up is No. 17, listed by Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers. It’s one of two two-bedroom rentals up for grabs, both of which are asking $15,000/month; this is the larger of the two, coming in at just over 1,700 square feet. Its configuration is pretty different from the $22,500/month unit; there’s no balcony, for one, and the bedrooms sit next to each other, with the open great room/kitchen taking up most of the apartment.

↑ And then there’s No. 18, also going for $15,000/month. It’s the smallest of the three rentals, coming in at just under 1,700 square feet, but it also has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It’s also a corner unit, situated on the northwestern side of the building—so don’t expect High Line views. But this one is still plenty nice, with the same Boffi kitchen, fancy finishes, and enviable closet space found in the other apartments; the master suite is also on a different side of the apartment from the other bedroom, which could be a perk for some.

Sales for the game-changing Chelsea condo launched nearly two years ago, and according to StreetEasy, there are still 10 apartments up for grabs—including the $50 million triplex penthouse.
