520 West 28th Street’s design captures the richness of its vibrant and historic urban context. A fascinating interplay between the city and the High Line has created a powerful urban dynamic among the elevated park and surrounding streetscape. This same dynamic is evident within the design; an interconnected chevron separates and merges the building’s two distinct zones, further establishing this contextual relationship and giving each residence the highest degree of originality.
