520 West 28th Street: Luxury from the Future

Rendering of 520 West 28th Street bedroom and balcony.

It’s not quite a manor on Coruscant, but at least it’s not in a galaxy far, far away. The highly anticipated High Line residential project designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, 520 West 28th Street, recently released new renderings of its interiors, and it promises to be as futuristic as everyone hoped.

Sculptural both inside and out, with sleek, rounded edges and glassy window walls, the luxury condominium building at 520 West 28th Street really looks like something from Star Wars. New renderings really showcase what these designer condos have to offer. Running counter to contemporary design trends, i.e. minimalism characterized by sleek edges and sharp angles, these interiors favor sculptural curves with a neo-futurist flair.

520 West 28th features 29 luxury condos in one of Manhattan’s hottest neighborhoods, and strive to seamlessly integrate outdoor terraces and indoor living spaces - perfect since it’s right by the High Line. Inside, kitchens boast some serious style with rounded islands topped with white marble, milled cabinetry from a designer collection by Boffi. Windowed master baths offer a trendy setting from which to enjoy unique city backdrop; and with freestanding soaking tubs and wet rooms, they’re clearly dedicated to cultivating a spa-like environment. Many of these master suites also offer walk-in closets and dressing rooms. Spacious terraces and balconies may as well be landing pads for spaceships, but they’re perfect for enjoying morning coffee or evening wine. And given the futurism that Zaha Hadid seems to be going for, glass doors glide open at a button’s touch. In short, the interior architecture is stunning, and the experience is nothing short of luxurious.

No expense was spared on the amenities suite, which includes a private IMAX theater, fitness center and 75-foot swimming pool, entertaining room with adjacent kitchen, and even an automated valet. In every aspect, 520 West 28th Street is clearly ahead of the curve.
