Communal spaces available to the future residents of Zaha Hadid Architects’ 520 West 28th project in New York’s Chelsea are revealed in these images, which show a skylit swimming pool, a striated IMAX theatre and a bright gymnasium.
As the 11-storey condo building nears completion and the last of the 39 luxury residences wait to be sold, the photoset offers a glimpse of the building’s opulent amenities that could entice the final few buyers.
The residences, with interiors demonstrated by a pair of show apartments, are accompanied by a 75-foot-long (23-metre) swimming pool topped with a huge curvaceous skylight.
The pool forms part of the building’s wellness level, where a dimly lit spa features a hot tub and plunge pool with glazed doors to a steam room, rainforest showers, treatment beds and a sauna, all of which can be reserved for private use.
A fully equipped gymnasium, also on this level, includes columns that taper outwards towards the ceiling to form beams lined with lights. These curving forms are mimicked in a white bench that forms a resting spot in the gym, which will be open 24 hours, along with a juice-bar to re-fuel.
The photos also reveal an IMAX cinema – one of the first of its kind in a private development. Slanted, black slats with curved edges wrap the room designed for private movie nights or parties.
Another reservable entertainment area is located in the building’s lobby, and comprises a kitchen and terrace facing towards the popular High Line elevated park. The outdoor area was landscaped by Brooklyn-based Future Green Studio to include a green wall and water installation.
There is also a robotic parking system that parks and retrieves resident’s cars on call. Other high-tech features include an automated storage system similar to those found in Swiss banks inside the building, which retrieves valuable from hidden vaults and brings them to a secure space.
Residents who have already purchased the development’s apartments– which range in price from $4.95 million (£4 million) for a two-bedroom condo to $50 million (£40.3 million) for the penthouse – were due to move in June this year. However, photos taken in July showed scaffolding still on the roof and balconies.
The project, unveiled in 2013, is the late Zaha Hadid’s first in New York. Since then, her firm has proposed for a supertall tower for a Midtown Manhattan site owned by the Kushner family, but it was announced this week that the project is unlikely to go ahead.
