 (Photos: Courtesy of Related Companies and Zaha Hadid Architects)

520 West 28th Street is a boutique condominium being developed by the Related Company designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid. This boutique condominium will be contemporary and sculptural, creating a unique dynamism adjacent to the High Line in West Chelsea, one of Manhattan’s most exciting neighborhoods.

The 11-storey new development being built in 2014 will feature approximately 37 residences of up to 5,500 square feet with 11-foot ceilings, technological integration and tailored interiors. Designed with multiple elevator cores, a majority of the residences will have a private vestibule and entrance that adds to the intimacy of the building.

The double-height entrance lobby offers glimpses beyond to the residents’ communal spaces and outdoor garden. Large terraces, courtyard, indoor pool & spa, entertainment space and playrooms give additional opportunities to relax and entertain.

520 West 28th Street is Hadid’s first New York residential project. The design includes a one-of-a-kind chevron detail at the building center, which is both futuristic and functional—the detail creates two separate elevator banks to provide intimate residential entries. Generously scaled two- to five-bedroom residences will offer a lucky few the opportunity to live within a work of art.

Chelsea: Manhattan Neighborhood Report

1 comments
updated 11/20/2013
"HOT" Real Estate Market - "COOL" Neighborhood

Chelsea is located between 28th Street and Greenwich Village on the West Side.

West 23rd ChelseaChelsea is largely a residential area with a varied mix of high-and mid-rise buildings, brownstones and industrial lofts. The architecture in this area is unique. East of Ninth Avenue, the spacious and stylish loft warehouses give way to stunning landmark townhouses, prewar co-ops and new luxury glass high-rise buildings.

For many years Chelsea was the heart of the Garment and Flower districts until recently. Chelsea today is one of the city's hottest zip codes and coolest neighborhoods. It is now considered a fashionable place to live, it began in the early 1800's as a family farm, it became more commercial later that century with the arrival of an above ground railroad.

Chelsea Landmarks and History: Chelsea's origins date back to 1750 and the neighborhood has seen a lot of change since its days as farmland. Chelsea was the city's first theater district, and was a fashionable shopping district. The famous Barney's specialty store was located at 17th and Seventh Avenue for many years before moving uptown to Madison Avenue. Barney's annual warehouse sale still takes place every winter in Chelsea. "The Ladies Mile" along Sixth Avenue is a historic district. Between the Civil War and World War I, the district was the location of some of New York's most famous department stores. It is now once again a hot shopping area.

One of the most architecturally distinct pre-war buildings is London Terrace, a 1929 complex that runs the entire block from 23rd to 24th Streets between Ninth Avenue and Tenth Avenue. London Terrace includes a common garden, a pool, and 1,700 units in co-ops (known as the Towers) and rentals (known as the Gardens.) In 1930 London Terrace was the largest apartment complex in NYC and in the world located across the street from the fashionable townhouses and brownstones on "Millionaire's Row"

Chelsea today is a vibrant neighborhood with off Broadway theaters, new cutting edge art galleries, restaurants, bars and pulsating night clubs and designer shops.

The famous landmark Hotel Chelsea is where many famous artists, writers and musicians have stayed. Currently it is closed undergoing renovations converting to condos.

There are many new luxury rental buildings along Sixth Avenue and many new condo developments have been built and are being developed on the far west portion of Chelsea between 10th and 11th Avenues.

Chelsea has also become a hub for media and creative people and high energy businesses. Google recently purchased 111 Eighth Avenue, one of Manhattan's largest buildings and a key hub for Internet traffic for $1.9 billion for their New York Headquarters. Numerous ad agencies and media companies including Interactive Corp.'s Frank Gehry designed glass building on the West Side Highway opposite the Chelsea Piers are making Chelsea their corporate homes.

The development of Chelsea Piers and the water park has also provided a huge economic boom to the district. Chelsea Piers offers: ice-skating; rock climbing; gymnastics, golf, two restaurants, a marine center, health club, bowling facilities, biking, roller blading and television studios.

The High Line Apartments - West Chelsea - Far West Chelsea

West Chelsea from 10th Avenue to 11th Avenue, from 16th Street north to 30th Street, is booming with new condo developments that have transformed the once gritty Manhattan neighborhood into a fashionable destination. Most of the new developments are around the High Line. New condos with park views.

5 comments


Manhattan's new 21st century park, The High Line park opened this week. The High Line is built atop the former elevated train track transforming 22 blocks into an open park.


The High Line runs through three of Manhattans most dynamic neighborhoods, Hells Kitchen, West Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.

Many new real estate projects were created along the High Line. The High Line itself is adjacent to or runs through various buildings creating interesting unique urban designs.

Several new residential projects are underway or have been completed.

High Line 23 or HL23 (shown above) is a new green building that is currently under construction in the West Chelsea art gallery district at West 23rd Street and 10th Avenue.

The structure is a 14 floor mixed use of gallery space and condominiums with amazing views of the new High Line elevated park. The condo will include nine floor-through apartments ranging in size from about 1,850 square feet to 2,600 square feet. Sales are underway. Prices range from $2,750,000 to $11,500,000 for the 3700 square foot penthouse duplex unit with a terrace.
The first phase of the pedestrian park which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, opened this week. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009.

The redevelopment of the abandoned elevated railroad structure has created a residential new construction boom on the far west side along the High Line.

The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the High Line Park had sold out 190 condo units in April 2007, within eight months of sales. The Caledonia also features luxury rental apartments.

0 comments
New York City is the recipient of the 2009 Urban Land Institute award for excellence for the West Chelsea/ High Line Project.

Ten awards are given out to projects throughout North America.
The Urban Land Institute has been recognizing excellence in land use and development for the past thirty years.

The High Line, once an abandoned elevated rail line, is fast becoming one of the City's - and world's - most innovative new parks. The redevelopment of the abandoned elevated railroad structure has created a residential new construction boom on the far west side along the High Line and the Hudson river.

The High Line runs through three of Manhattans most dynamic neighborhoods, Hells Kitchen, West Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.

The park's first phase, which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, is set to open by June of this year. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street and to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009.

Fujifilm joins Friends of the High Line with Portrait project

Hundreds of photographs will be displayed in unique outdoor galleries to raise awareness of High Line park, projected to open in 2008.

As the High Line park takes shape above the streets of New York City, construction fencing in the neighborhood will feature improvised outdoor art galleries covered with photographs of High Line supporters from the local community and beyond according to Friends of the High Line.

The group will also launch a Web site featuring the portraits, http://www.thehighline.org/portraits.

Dubbed "The High Line Portrait Project" and made possible with a $50,000 donation from Fujifilm, the photographs capture the spirit of the inventive new park that is being built atop the High Line elevated rail structure, which runs through the Manhattan neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell's Kitchen.

The High Line Park will be a unique 21st century public space. Plans are underway to transform a 6.7acre span of former elevated train track running 22 blocks into an open park.

The 190 condominium units in The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the future High Line Park had sold out in April, within eight months of sales.

For additional information including beautiful High Line pictures photographed by Joel Sternfeld along with news, preliminary designs, a film about the history of the High Line Rail and more please visit the Friends of the High Line website.
