Smile NEW YORK | 515 West 18th Street | FT | 22 + 10 FLOORS

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

Under Construction



=======================

Foundation Work Underway For Thomas Heatherwick-Designed 511-525 West 18th Street, West Chelsea



Quote:
Situated one block north of “The XI,” designed by Bjarke Ingels, and sitting adjacent to Frank Gehry’s IAC Building and Jean Nouvel’s residential tower at 100 Eleventh Avenue, Thomas Heatherwick is bringing his first set of residential buildings to the High Line, just after his “Vessel” recently topped off at Hudson Yards. The project, located at 511-525 West 18th Street, is being developed by Related Companies and will be one of the largest buildings in Chelsea when completed.

Walking along the High Line past the Observation Deck steps above 10th Avenue, the walkway begins to shift to the left on a diagonal before re-aligning itself with the avenues once again. Thomas Heatherwick’s project will sit towards the end of this first section of the High Line before the majority of the promenade starts running parallel with 10th Avenue.

The walkway in between the residential structures almost acts like a narrow passageway for tourists to cross before gazing at the dozens of unique architectural buildings, jostling for the best real estate and presence.

Looking back at Heatherwick’s project site, the High Line will stand above commercial and gallery space connecting the 425,000 square foot complex. One building will rise 22 stories on the western side of the High Line, and another on the east will stand 10 stories.

The exterior facade of both buildings will use a light brick, surrounding the signature sculptural glazing that utilizes a convex-shaped framing structure, making it a striking and eye-catching feature that differentiates the siblings from every other building in the neighborhood, let alone all of New York City. 181 condominiums will be included and will range from one-bedrooms to four-bedroom units.

Also, NEW YORK | 515 West 18th Street | FT | 22 + 10 FLOORS (2 Components)

22 floors and 10 floors for the respective two components. Heights not known, but I'd estimate 250 ft and 125 ft.
