The new Chelsea condo Soori High Line, at 522 West 29th Street, has made headlines for apartments that come with their own private pools. And now one of the building’s most luxurious condos has hit the market—a penthouse triplex asking $22.5 million. This pad boasts nearly 20 foot ceilings and one incredible, 25-foot-long, four-foot-deep heated rooftop pool.

Soo K. Chan, founder of Singapore-based firm SCDA Architects, says “good architecture should move the human spirit.” The practice’s first New York development, a ground-up condominium named Soori High Line at 522 West 29th Street, certainly elicits a high degree of “wow,” conveyed through its soaring 19-foot ceilings, equally tall windows, private heated swimming pools, and living room fireplaces. The $70 million project is a joint venture between Siras Development and Soo Chan’s real estate arm Oriel. 6sqft took a tour of the still-under-construction building, where it was clear that even in its raw unfinished state, the opulence of Soori’s homes is already undeniable.

POLL: Are Private Pools the Next Must-Have Amenity?

By Dana Schulz, Wed, July 22, 2015

This morning we revealed renderings of Six Sigma’s upcoming condo at 435 West 19th Street, which offers private pools as one of its amenities (along with a sky garage). We first saw this perk pop up at SCDA’s Soori High Line a few blocks north on 29th Street, where 16 of its 27 units will feature heating swimming pools. Then, a $13 million condo at 172 Madison Avenue touted its 50-foot-long private pool, and One Riverside Park, Extell’s notorious “poor door” building, flaunted its duplex’s private pools.

While this may be a new trend here in NYC, “Soo Chan, principal of Singapore-based SCDA Architects, has already made a name for himself in Asia as the pool master, designing towers with up to 120 private swimming holes,” as we previously reported. So now that New Yorkers are getting a taste of what it’s like, are private pools going to be the next incarnation of the can’t-live-without fitness center?

Forget public pools and health clubs, the Soori High Line will offer private, heated swimming pools in 16 of its ultra-posh residences. Soo Chan, principal of Singapore-based SCDA Architects, has already made a name for himself in Asia as the pool master, designing towers with up to 120 private swimming holes. Now Chan’s water-inspired interiors have also come to the surface in New York. The 11-story, 27-unit building at 522 West 19th Street will feature 16 pools ranging in size from 23 to 26 feet long, 7 to 9 feet wide, and 4 feet deep.
