515 West 18th Street New York, NY

515 West 18th Street is located at the heart of Chelsea’s art gallery district. The project has been conceived as a reinterpretation of the neighborhood’s warehouse architecture, with a brick exterior and bulging bay windows. The two towers, one rising 21 stories, the other 10 stories, will contain approximately 180 one, two, three, and four bedroom residences. Thomas Heatherwick, founder of Heatherwick Studio, said “the studio wanted to create a new kind of panoramic visual connection for the building’s residents and re-conceived the residential bay window as a three-dimensional sculpted piece of glazing that provides light-filled interiors as well as exciting internal moments.”
