Smile NEW YORK | 515 West 18th Street | FT | FLOORS (2 Components)

Thomas Heatherwick Designs Bubble-Wrapped Condos to Saddle Up Next to the High Line







Quote:
As a follow-up to Hudson Yards’ Vessel and the back-on-the-table Pier 55 project, Thomas Heatherwick is to bring another architectural oddity to Manhattan’s west side. Last year, at the groundbreaking ceremony of Vessel, Related Companies’ chairman Stephen Ross hinted that the acclaimed British designer is involved in another of their numerous west side developments. Lo and behold, via an EB5 filings website, the property to be is 515 West 18th Street, a dozen blocks south of their Hudson Yards mega-project. As typical with Related, the handful of renderings show the project will walk the fine line between architectural invention and real estate pragmaticism.

As we previously reported, the property anchors the entire western blockfront of Tenth Avenue between West 18th and 20th Street. It is bisected by the High Line and is an earshot from the Hudson River waterfront. Related picked up the site in 2014, for a then-neighborhood record sum of $205 million. Now-approved Construction permits were filed in late 2016 by the project’s executive architects SLCE, and demolition of a 2-floor warehouse has since then finished. Now, earthmovers and diggers are preparing the foundation and completion is scheduled for mid-2020.

The only thing that throws it off are the small windows between the 4th and 6th floor. IDK why they added them like that.

Wow this is unique and eye-catching. Build it!

Too bad it isn’t 50 stories. Something this good should be bigger.

515 West 18th Street:



Quote:
515 West 18th Street offers a distinctive reinvention of the Chelsea warehouse architectural style, featuring a modern interpretation of the bay window and a custom masonry façade. The 21-story building comprises a collection of approximately 180 one, two, three and four bedroom residences, many of which bestow uninterrupted cityscape and Hudson River views, and promise to provide residents a totally integrated lifestyle destination. 515 West 18th Street is part of a two-tower development that links underneath the High Line. The development is in the heart of the art gallery district, within a short walk to sprawling parks, acclaimed restaurants, storied nightlife and several of Manhattan’s finest schools.

The building is designed by Heatherwick Studio, founded by the British designer Thomas Heatherwick in 1994. Hailed for a number of significant projects in the UK, including the award-winning UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010, the studio’s work also includes Vessel at Hudson Yards and Lincoln Center in Manhattan, a new campus for Google in Silicon Valley (with BIG) as well as Zeitz MOCAA, a museum in Cape Town, South Africa that makes use of a disused grain silo.

Occupancy is anticipated for 2020
