In January 2020, sales began at Lantern House, a highly anticipated condominium building designed by the acclaimed Heatherwick Studio with interiors by March & White

Currently rising in West Chelsea at 515 West 18th Street. Lantern House is comprised of 181 elegantly appointed residences, state-of-the-art amenities, and will offer unparalleled services. Uniquely crafted to take advantage of its location, Lantern House includes a 22 story west building and a 10 story east building, joined by a dramatic glass lobby pavilion draped under the High Line.

Heatherwick Studio designed Lantern House from the inside-out, creating a one-of-a-kind collection of residences along the High Line. The timeless architecture, with its signature modern interpretation of bay windows, inviting interiors by March & White, and Related’s signature amenities and services will create unmatched homes in the heart of West Chelsea.

J. Sasson, Vice President, Related Companies

Lantern House includes Vessel at Hudson Yards and Little Island at Pier 55; the design for Lantern House is a response to the neighborhood’s maritime warehouses and a nod to Downtown Manhattan’s industrial loft spaces. The building’s façade features hand-laid antiqued grey brickwork with industrial metal detailing, and a dramatic reinvention of the bay window that maximizes light and views including breathtaking views of the Hudson River, the Midtown skyline, the High Line, and Chelsea's historic district.

Distinctive inside as it is from the outside, Lantern House’s interiors were designed by March & White, the international design studio founded in London by Elliot March and James White,

Each of the 181 residences at Lantern House include the building’s signature three-dimensional bay windows, offering horizontal and vertical panoramas and adding grace, symmetry and proportion in every room. 

It was important for the interiors and architecture to have a conversation that incorporated the history and energy of the location and neighborhood. The holistic design connects a distinctive façade with a heritage interior.

Custom open plan kitchens designed by March & White are featured in each home, with a mix of warm natural materials and elegant custom finishes, melding timeless craft with modern technology.

Residences will be available in two distinct finish palettes, offering early buyers their preferred choice of material palettes.
