Three years after sales launched at Zaha Hadid’s swooping High Line condo, 520 West 28th Street, developer Related Companies is ready to unveil the building’s crowing penthouse, once again. The New York Times first reported on the pinnacle penthouse, which will officially list on the market on October 18 and will reportedly ask $50 million, the same price it was asking when it first listed.

The triplex condo is called Penthouse 37 and comes with five bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms spread out over nearly 7,000 square feet of space. Four of the five bedrooms are located on the lowest level of the triplex, including the master suite. Each of the three guest bedrooms have ensuite marble bathrooms. The master suite has a dressing room, balcony, and two bathrooms among its features. Swanky features abound in this development like the glass walls in one of the bathrooms, which can be turned opaque with the flip of a switch, as the Times explains.

The living room, library, kitchen, and a fifth bedroom all take up the second level of this home. The living room comes with 11-foot-tall ceilings, a fireplace, wraparound glass walls, and white oak floors. The kitchen features objects like the kitchen island that were custom designed by Zaha Hadid before her death in 2016. There’s also a suite of Gaggenau appliances.

The top floor, for the most part, is occupied by the massive rooftop terrace, which offers views of the High Line, Hudson Yards, and the newly opened art galleries, High Line Nine. All three floors of the triplex will be connected by a sculptural staircase designed by Hadid, but each of the floors is also accessible by an elevator.

The penthouse previously listed in 2016, but was de-listed about nine months ago according to StreetEasy. Now, construction has fully wrapped on the triplex. When the penthouse lists on Thursday next week, it will be come of New York City’s most expensive homes for sale. About half of the building has sold so far, according to the Times.
