520 West 28th Street

  • New York, USA
  • Client; Related

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.

An integration of volumes that flow into each other, the design follows a coherent formal language to create the sensibility of the building’s overall ensemble. With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighbourhood.

The 11-story development 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.
