520W28 by Zaha Hadid

Chelsea, New York

520 W 28th St, New York, NY 10001, USA

One of the last projects from the late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, 520 West 28th is a futuristic embrace of movement in the form of an intimate condominium development in West Chelsea. The only New York property by the Pritzker Prize winner, whose voluptuous designs earned her the moniker “Queen of Curve,” its interiors, also designed by Hadid, echo the energy and optimism of the exteriors. The lobby, for example, has water-jetted marble walls that appear to be frozen in midmovement, while the saline pool has a water feature and a skylight that brings in natural light. Loft-like residences have custom sculptural elements and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the High Line, an elevated greenway that is one of the luxury development’s most impressive amenities.

About 520W28 by Zaha Hadid

The vision for 520 W28 was to reflect the dynamic between the historically industrial neighborhood and the High Line, a development that has brought art galleries, fashion boutiques, and no shortage of other luxury residential developments to the area. Hadid, one of the world’s architectural greats and the only woman to be awarded the Pritzker Prize, is known for her undulating designs and elaborate facades—and these features are clearly on display here. The result is a split-level building where floors blend with walls, glass balustrades mirror floor-to-ceiling windows, and concrete slabs are finished with hand-rubbed metal. It’s at once forward-looking and nostalgic, a celebration of artisan craftsmanship and technology.

This formerly industrial area, once known for its nightlife, has become an innovative and fashion-forward hub of art and culture. This transformation is largely due to the High Line, an elevated park that extends along Manhattan’s West Side and is bookended by the Whitney Museum of Art and Hudson Yards, a massive residential and commercial complex that’s part office park, part condo towers, and part tourist attraction. Also nearby: Chelsea Market, the Meatpacking District, and the Hudson River Greenway.

With just 39 residences, ranging in size from two bedrooms to five bedrooms, 520 W28 has an intimate but airy vibe. Interiors feel sleek, modern, and almost gallery-like, thanks to lofty ceilings, monochromatic tones, and one-of-a-kind accents and furnishings, including curvilinear kitchen islands, designed in collaboration with Italian brand Boffi, and sculptural freestanding bathtubs by Teuco Guzzini.

For a building of this caliber, there are certain amenities you expect (e.g., smart-home features, automated parking and storage facilities, and 24-hour doorman and concierge services). 520 W28 delivers on these fronts and then some via a 75-foot subterranean swimming pool; a spa suite with plunge pools, sauna and steam rooms, and massage beds; and New York’s only private IMAX theater.

Nine New Developments That Celebrate Play Time

Of all the amenities luxury buildings offer, children’s spaces often end up at the bottom of the priority list for both buyers and developers. But more and more, high-end condo buildings are approaching kids' rooms with the same care and attention to detail that they bring to every other amenity.
