Thomas Heatherwick’s unique condo project on the High Line is showing off its collection of penthouses ahead of the building’s impending completion this year. Lantern House, located at 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea, consists of two towers that rise on either side of the High Line, one at 10 stories and the other at 22. Last October we got a peek inside the bubbled residences, and now new images have been released of a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath penthouse with a large outdoor terrace, currently listed for $12.975 million.

Designed by Heatherwick Studio with SLC Architects as the architect of record and interiors by March and White, Lantern House contains 181 total residences, ranging from one- to four-bedroom units split between the structures. The two towers are connected by a glass pavilion lobby that is pierced by beams from the elevated High Line.

While all of the residences are special thanks to the lantern-shaped bay windows, the penthouse units especially take advantage of the condo’s design. All of the penthouses feature full-height corner bay windows and outdoor terraces, providing residents with stunning panoramic city and Hudson River views.

March and White’s interiors took inspiration from Heatherwick’s exterior, with units boasting chevron-patterned oak floors and kitchens with custom bronze finishes. Other perks include a 70-bottle wine cooler, double wall ovens, convex fluted oak cabinets, and Calacatta Venato marble slab countertops. According to a press release, the penthouses of the west building have a second dishwasher, dual warming drawers, and a built-in coffee maker.

The terraces, either located off of the Great Room or found on private second-floor rooftops, come equipped with stainless-steel outdoor kitchens with built-in gas grills and Subzero refrigerators. Lantern House penthouses are priced between $7.95 million and $18.975 million, with lower floor units starting at $1.825 million.

“For our first residential project in North America, we wanted to design something that is interesting to look at and could be part of the view,” Heatherwick said. “People love to live in memorable places. For Lantern House, it was important that our design feel rooted in and of New York as much as possible. When Lantern House residents return home, we want them to feel like they are returning to a place like no other.”

Since sales launched last January, the response from buyers has been notable, despite the coronavirus pandemic, with an average of three unit sales every month for the last six months, as the New York Post reported in November. Plus, an $18.975 million penthouse just went into contract.

Related Sales LLC and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group are leading the sales. Closings are expected to start this spring with occupancy later this year.

“Lantern House stands out in the market because this collection of homes was designed from the inside-out, which has resonated strongly with buyers,” Dan August Cordeiro, senior managing director at Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, said. “From the fantastic views to the luxurious amenities overlooking the High Line, Lantern House is an extraordinary opportunity for purchasers, whether they are in the market for a one-bedroom home or a sprawling terraced penthouse.”
