The renowned teams of Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) and Olson Kundig have teamed up for a new condo project in Chelsea and ahead of its official launch later this fall, we’re getting a first look inside. Located across the street from Hudson River Park at 555 West 22nd Street, The Cortland is a 25-story building with 144 total units. RAMSA designed the exterior of the condo and Olson Kundig handled the interiors, combining their distinguished architecture styles in one impressive waterfront development.

The Cortland is being developed by Related Companies, the group also behind nearby Lantern House designed by Thomas Heatherwick. The developer bought the site at 555 West 22nd Street, which formerly held a U-Haul facility, in 2016 and filed permits a year later, as 6sqft reported at the time.

The facade of the building features a mix of red brick, metal, and RAMSA-favorite limestone, with over one million handmade and hand-laid bricks to give it a “distinctly historical feel,” according to a spokesperson for the project. SLCE Architects is the architect of record.

Seattle-based Olson Kundig brings elements of the West Coast to the interiors, with a focus on craftsmanship and natural materials. Offering a mix of studio to five-bedroom condo units, as well some penthouses, the residences boast flexible floorplans, high ceilings, multi-functional spaces, and picture-perfect river views.

Amenities include on-site parking, a spa, fitness center, residents lounges, children’s playroom, and more.

Related and RAMSA have worked together on a number of New York City projects, including 70 Vestry and The Harrison, among others. Led by Related Sales LLC and CORE, sales will kick off at The Cortland this fall.
