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.
