Sales Begin at Jardim, Isay Weinfeld’s Serene High Line-Adjacent Oasis

For those longing for Hamptons serenity without leaving Manhattan, Isay Weinfeld has designed a condominium for you. Sales officially kicked-off last week for the Brazilian architect’s first New York commission, which has aptly been named Jardim for its leafy oasis in the heart of hard-edged West Chelsea. The homes are divided among two 11-story fraternal buildings that come dressed in a textually rich skin of cast-concrete interrupted by elongated ribbons of glass.

Thirty-six light-filled homes frame the lushly planted, multi-level courtyard designed by Future Green Studio. And like all Manhattan real estate surrounding coveted greenery, the units come at a premium. Asking prices for the three currently available homes stand at $2,475 per square foot, according to CityRealty. The lowest priced abode is a 2,218-square-foot three-bedroom on the fourth floor going for $4.25 million; another three-bedroom on the third floor has an ask of $4.25 million; and a four-bedroom on the seventh floor has an ask of $7.55 million.

Jardim Floor Plan

Homes are large and airy with many featuring both north and south exposures, formal entry galleries, and panoramic windows providing views of the post-industrial cityscape and glimpses of the High Line. Private outdoor spaces are seamlessly accessed via sliding pocket doors. An interior palette of earth-toned materials including smoked oak, marble, brass and limestone—all selected by Weinfeld—allows the architecture to fall to the background. Kitchens with center islands are equipped with Gaggeneau appliances, and double-sink master bathrooms feature lava stone counter tops, grooved wood vanities, and lacquered brass fixtures.

A partnership between Centaur Properties and Greyscale Development Group yielded the 95,000-square-foot through-block lot at 525 West 27th Street. The site formerly held the Pink Elephant nightclub and now partially shoulders 520 West 28th Street, designed by late architect Zaha Hadid. Construction is due to wrap up near the end of 2017, and recently a bit of concrete wall has started to peer over the ubiquitous green-colored construction fence. Sadly, the lot will only grow more formidable, as the buildings’ street-level face is a concrete wall punctured by a few private entrances and a vaulted private driveway. For the rest of us, the world’s longest queue, the High Line, is just down the block.
