The 6,853-square-foot triplex penthouse atop the 11-story 520 West 28th Street condominium on the High Line, designed by the late Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, has arrived on the market for the first time for the as-promised ask of $50 million. The architecturally unique 39-unit building, Hadid’s first–and, sadly, only–ground-up structure in New York City, has interiors also overseen and designed by the architect.

Related Companies, the building’s developer, speaks of the honor of collaborating with “one of the world’s most visionary architects, Dame Zaha Hadid, on the design for 520 West 28th. The design is being realized as she envisioned–each residence is a work of art unto itself–and the penthouse in particular is a spectacular example of this, including various unique elements such as a sculptural three-story staircase, designed by Hadid, which unites all levels of the triplex residence.”

Hadid’s signature organic forms and graceful curves shape the exterior and interiors. Chevron patterns unzip the building, opening up arrays of exterior terraces that overlook the High Line. Interiors throughout feature wide-plank white oak flooring and automatic sliding glass doors to fluidly connect indoor and outdoor spaces. Each apartment was designed with a distinct sculptural element that creates dramatic feature walls while integrating closets and concealed hinges.

The crown jewel is, of course, this rare five bedroom penthouse, which boasts a 2,218-square-foot terrace and two private balconies. The entertaining level offers a massive great room with a fireplace and private balcony. A peerless eat-in-kitchen designed by the architect in collaboration with Boffi has a sculptural marble-clad island with Gaggenau appliances. A library, a powder room, a fifth bedroom suite and a second utility room complete this level.

The lower living level features an oversized corner master suite with two large windowed dressing rooms and two master baths, three additional bedroom suites, a utility room and a wet bar. Oversized motorized windows, ceiling heights up to nearly 12 feet, an internal private elevator, and a three-story sculptural staircase designed by Hadid can’t be found anywhere else.

With occupancy anticipated for early 2017, the building’s astounding curated collection of amenities includes a full-time concierge, doorman, lifestyle services and hand-delivered mail, the city’s first private IMAX Theater, and an entertaining suite with an events terrace, a wellness level with a 75-foot saline system skylit swimming pool, a fitness center, a reservable private spa suite, automated robotic parking, and storage vaults with a private viewing room.
