The design is a total departure from previous plans for the site
HAP's West 28th Street development has seen many iterations, from a speculative plan for an undulating tower designed by HAP favorite Karim Rashid to a surprisingly subdued building by WASA/Studio A. But neither of those designs will be moving forward. The development company has just unveiled its final design for the site—a dual-tower project by DXA Architects that echoes its surrounding architecture.
The development at 215 West 28th Street will stand 21 stories and cover 290,000 square feet shared by both condos and rentals. The development is in the pre-construction phase with condos expected in summer 2018 and rentals by the end of that year.
The building will prioritize outdoor space with courtyards, upper-floor terraces, and loggias and Juliette balconies on the lower, South-facing exposures. The development will also have 15,000 square feet of amenity space that will include the de rigueur amenities of a pool, gym, and children's playroom.
HAP first filed plans for the site for a 21-story building in May 2014.
