NEW YORK | 520 West 28th | 41m | 135ft | 11 fl | Com

Zaha Hadid's Swooping Spaceship For The High Line, Unveiled!



Quote:
July 15, 2013

Zaha Hadid may have lost out on the competition to design the High Line, but now the Iraq-British starchitect is back in the 'hood with a design for her very first New York City building. In fact, this time around, she beat out big names including Norman Foster—to whom she lost a competition to build an office tower at 425 Park Avenue—to get the gig. Hadid is known for dreaming up swooping, curving, space-age structures, and the 11-story condo building headed for 520 West 28th Street is no exception. Developed by Hudson Yards masterminds Related Companies, the site was actually quite limiting, according to New York Magazine's preview, which kept Hadid's grand swooshes in check. "You can't really go wild," she told NY Mag, yet it still "comes off like the delightful Earth home for the weary intergalactic superrich," with two wings of uneven heights, a chevron pattern on the exterior, rounded corners, and jutting-out terraces that make the facade excitingly far from uniform.

Within the 11 stories, Related says in a release issued this morning, will be "37 residences of up to 5,500 square feet, focusing on expansive, gracious layouts with 11-foot ceilings, thoughtful technological integration and state-of-the-art finishes and features.

Magnificent.

For some reason, it reminds me of a 21st Century, NY version of The Fountainblue in Miami.

The High Line is becoming a sort of Starchitecture district. But the best part about this is that Related is the developer. Could we be expecting some surprises over at Hudson Yards down the line?

So good. In some years, walking in the High Line will be like going to a big museum of modern architecture.

-Even more than most buildings, this will live or die based on the quality of the materials.

-I worry about the buildings along the highline becoming an unbroken mass of starchictecture. The whole point of the highline is that is like walking in a garden above the city. That should include old and working class buildings.

Generally speaking the buildings around the high line are mostly low rise but sometimes the buildings around it do take away the experience of actually enjoying the views the high line offers.

But this building is amazing! The west side is getting all these amazing projects, big or small

The quality of materials is always guaranteed with these super upscale projects so no need to worry about that.

This property was a metal scrap yard. I'm sure its disappearance will only enhance the experience on the High Line.

Thanks for posting the plans, for a moment I was confused as to a 22-story building could only be 135 feet tall, but it's got those sort of half-floors.

It looks like a bunch of Apple products stacked on top of each other.

I love SF and its new construction, but I would move back to NY for this highrise. If only I could afford it...
