Έντεκα όροφοι στο κέντρο του Μανχάταν, στην οδό High Line δεν είναι πολλοί. Αλλά η Βρετανοϊρακινή αρχιτέκτονας, Ζάχα Χαντίντ δεν έχει ανάγκη το ύψος για να μεγαλουργήσει. Το νέο της κτίριο, 520 West 28th Street, το πρώτο που σχεδιάζει για ιδιωτική χρήση στη Νέα Υόρκη, έχει τις καμπύλες και το παιχνίδι με την προοπτική που η ίδια λατρεύει, έχει τα μαύρα χρώματα που στιγματίζουν το έργο της και φυσικά, πολύ φως για τους κατοίκους που θα φιλοξενεί.

Το νέο φουτουριστικό κτίριο θα είναι ένα σύμπλεγμα ultra-luxe διαμερισμάτων που θα υψώνεται πάνω από το High Line, στο Μανχάταν. Ακόμα, θα διαθέτει ένα γκαράζ με προσωπικούς υπηρέτες ρομπότ και το πρώτο ιδιωτικό θέατρο 3D IMAX της πόλης.

Το κτίριο αναμένεται να ολοκληρωθεί στις αρχές του 2017.

Το Tech Insider περιόδευσε πρόσφατα σε μία από τις μονάδες, το κόστος των οποίων θα ανέρχεται από 4,9 έως 50 εκατομμύρια δολάρια.

Ρίξτε μια ματιά στο εσωτερικό

520 West 28th Street is Hadid's first residential building in NYC.

In 2004, Hadid won the Pritzker Prize, often considered the Nobel Prize of architecture. She is known for her neofuturistic curved buildings, and her newest one is no exception.

The stainless metal exterior wraps around to form an L-shape. To create the curves, each panel of cladding was laser-cut.

The 11-story building will feature 39 apartments, including two penthouses with floor-to-ceiling windows.

This is the view from the window of one of the model apartments. You can see the High Line and West Chelsea down below.

When I walked in, I immediately knew it was Hadid's work.

The marble kitchen island's edge swoop down just like the exterior building facade. Hadid worked with the Italian designer Boffi to create it, according to Related Companies' marketing manager Natalie Johnson.

Everything in the model apartment is top of the line. The windows open via apps and the lighting is energy-efficient. The furniture is beautiful, but the smart home gadgetry is fun, too.

If residents have a wine collection, they can store up to 99 bottles in this temperature-controlled rack.

The bathrooms (also a collaboration between Boffi and Hadid) include marble floors, rainfall shower heads, and six-foot-long tubs.

The living room opens to a private balcony that overlook the High Line and a 2,500-square-foot sculpture garden. The art is curated by High Line Art, a public program that presents artwork on and around the walkway.

The apartments will range from about 1,700 to 6,600 square feet, with two to five-bedroom layouts. All of the ceilings will stretch over 10 feet high.

The building also will include a parade of amenities, including an automated 12-car garage. When residents arrive, they notify the garage via a key fob, which automatically opens the door. Residents then drive onto the platform, and a kiosk asks them if they have their keys, bags, pets, and kids. Once everything checks out, the platform lifts the car to its parking spot like an elevator— but for a car.

Doormen and a concierge will staff the lobby 24-7.

Through the lobby, there will be a private IMAX theater that seats 12 people. The developers hope to show films the same time they premiere in theaters, Johnson tells Tech Insider.

On the same floor, there will be a private spa, fitness center, and 75-foot sky-lit pool.

The building will also feature four elevators (unusual for NYC apartments) that run next to each other in two elevator shafts. Residents will hardly ever need to wait, and the elevators will open right into each apartment.

Residents who live here won't have to breathe normal city air. Before they move in, NYC's dirty air will be filtered four times and then pumped into every apartment — a small amenity considering the multi-million dollar price tag, I suppose.

The building will be impressive, but so is the neighborhood that surrounds it. Future residents could easily walk to Chelsea Market, the Hudson River running trail, the Whitney Museum ...

Prices for the apartments range from $4.9 million for a two-bedroom apartment to $50 million for the largest penthouse.

Hadid competed against other well-known architects to design 520 West 28th Street. Her style "is an optimistic view of the future," said Gregory Gushee, Related's executive vice president, in an interview with The New York Times. "It’s modern and taking advantage of curves, which is hard to do in real estate — it’s expensive to do, frankly — but the design was so compelling that we decided to spend the money."
