Related Companies brings another signature residential building to the High Line 

Related Companies announced today that it has commissioned Zaha Hadid Architects to design a boutique residential building adjacent to the High Line at 520 West 28th Street in Chelsea, just south of Hudson Yards. It will be Hadid’s first building in New York City.

“We are proud to partner with Zaha Hadid Architects and to continue Related’s commitment to the very best in urban architecture,” said Jeff Blau, CEO of Related Companies. “This development will be truly unique within the city’s architectural offerings, and will pave the way for future architectural achievements on Manhattan’s west side.”

A chevron pattern enhances the sculpted exterior, at once separating and merging the two distinct zones of the building. The innovative concept further develops this contextual relationship, giving each residence the highest degree of originality.

“Our design is an integration of volumes that flow into each other and, following a coherent formal language, create the sensibility of the building’s overall ensemble,” explained Hadid. “With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighborhood.”

The 11-story development will have 37 residences of up to 5,500 sq ft, focusing on expansive layouts with 11ft ceilings, thoughtful technological integration, and state-of-the-art finishes and features. Designed with multiple elevator cores, a majority of the residences with have a private vestibule entrance.

Residents of the building will be able to enjoy the High Line while maintaining privacy and exclusivity. A double height lobby entrance will offer glimpses beyond to the residents’ communal space and to an outdoor garden. Generous terraces and a courtyard further enhance the residential experience and a substantial roof terrace, indoor pool and spa, entertainment space and playrooms provide additional opportunities to relax and entertain.

The boutique building will join several notable projects underway nearby including Related’s own Hudson Yards - a 26 acre mixed-use development, the first tower of which will open in 2015 - and the company’s soon-to-be-announced new luxury rental property at 30th Street and 10th Avenue.
