Flush Finishes in a New York Legacy
Introducing the next iconic New York City building 520 West 28th Street. The late award-winning architect Zaha Hadid, designed this 11-story upscale apartment building in the heart of Chelsea in Manhattan, New York. Hadid designed 520 West 28th street to have a futuristic look with interlaced metal and glass levels on the façade, featuring 39 residences ranging from two to five bedrooms and views of the High Line as well as the Empire State Building.
Started in June 2014, this project was completed in June 2017 and residents to moved into their new luxury condominiums later that month. Some of the abundant amenities in this residency include a 75-foot sky lit pool, a lobby with a view onto the garden, a private IMAX theater, fitness center, secure parking and much more. Since it was Hadid’s first New York City building and one of her last designs, it will remain a testament to her legacy.

The two architecture firms won the Project of the Year award at the 2017 SARA New York Design Awards for their work on 520 West 28th Street. This building boasts a design that is a bold departure from traditional residential buildings, setting a new standard for architects. Developed by Related Companies, 520 West 28th street is part of a new generation of landmark structures.
