Most New Yorkers know Thomas Heatherwick as the designer of the Vessel, the Escher-like stairwell/exo-skeleton-looking interactive sculpture in the center of Hudson Yards. But the UK firm Heatherwick Studio is a distinguished architecture firm with a thriving practice, including their first residential development on the High Line, just south of Hudson Yards at 515 West 18th Street.

Designed in a Chelsea warehouse architectural style, 515 West 18th Street’s distinctive modern interpretation of the bay window have been referred to as “bubble-wrapper windows." Architectural Digest previously said the windows echo Heatherwick’s Silo Hotel/Zeitz MOCAA Museum in Cape Town. The custom brick masonry façade introduces a strong grid and will also be quite distinctive. The first glass panels are being installed on the west side of the building this week.

The 21-story building is part of a two-tower development that will link under the High Line. It will have approximately 180 one- to-four bedroom residences, many will have city and Hudson River views. Amenities will include a fitness center and spa, an entertainment room, residential lounges, and parking for 175 vehicles. There will also be 17,000 square feet of retail and gallery space in the linked space underneath the High Line. Prices have not been posted for the residences, nor does the latest offering plan list a sellout, but CityRealty’s High Line Index reports an average condo price of $1,787 per square foot. Occupancy is expected in 2020.
