New images showing Zaha Hadid Architects’ first residential building in New York City have been released
The scheme, which is currently on site, sits on the edge of Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s elevated High Line park and will span a substantial portion of the block from 27th to 28th Streets in the heart of Chelsea’s arts district.
The RIBA Gold Medal-winning architect’s eleven-storey building will include 39 apartments, a double-height entrance lobby, outdoor garden, a roof terrace, indoor pool and spa, an entertainment space, and playrooms.
The largest penthouse in the sculptural apartment building has gone on sale for $50 million.
Hadid, said: ‘I’ve always been fascinated by the High Line and its possibilities for the city. Decades ago, I used to visit the galleries in the area and consider how to build along the route. It’s very exciting to be building there now. The design engages with the city while concepts of fluid spatial flow create a dynamic new living environment.’
