We are delighted to present a four-bedroom apartment for sale in New York’s West Chelsea neighbourhood that is truly one of a kind. It is one of the residential offerings at 520 West 28th Street, also known as the Zaha Hada Building after the legendary late architect.
Dame Hadid had a reputation for creative designs that emphasized curves over angularity, making the art hub of West Chelsea the perfect location for her only New York residential project. The building comprises a handcrafted metal structure resembling a chevron and shaped to have ‘folds’ so all of the floors are interlaced, giving it a dynamic and thoroughly distinct aesthetic. Seen from the ground, it seems to form one single curve, winding its way around the structure and sweeping upward. There are only 39 residences inside, making it as exclusive to live in as it is beautiful to look at.
The apartment can be roughly divided into four main zones. One corner of it is taken up by a great room incorporating a double living area and formal dining room. Adjoining this space is a beautiful modern eat-in kitchen and family room with a wide balcony. Three en-suite bedrooms occupy the third corner of the apartment, while the fourth belongs to the master suite, which contains two walk-in closets. Full-height glass paneling covers the exterior walls and has a fluid shape that mirrors the design of the building. Many aspects of the apartment have been custom-designed and personally overseen by Dame Hadid herself, including the kitchen that was put together in conjunction with noted Italian specialist Boffi and a custom-built sculptural element in the great room.
The living experience at 520 West 28th Street is further enhanced by a stupendous range of first-class amenities. Among them are a skylit 75-foot indoor swimming pool, a lobby with a hand-sculpted 34-foot feature wall and a desk designed by Dame Hadid, New York’s only private IMAX cinema, a state-of-the-art fitness center designed in conjunction with fitness innovators The Wright Fit, and a lounge with a chef’s kitchen and terrace. An automated valet takes care of parking and automated storage is also available. Residents can further customize their living experience thanks to a dedicated concierge service managed by Luxury Attache.
This apartment is a unique and very rare opportunity to own a home in the art and culture capital of New York. For our most discerning clients, it would be the perfect family home or second residence in the city.
