Zaha Hadid may have only designed one building for New York City, but the structure, with its distinctive curving architecture familiar to many Hadid designs, certainly makes the most of its 11 stories and 39 unique residences.

520 West 28th’s residences will range in size from 1,691 sf to 6,855 sf with accompanying prices ranging from $4.9 million $50 million, Business Insider reports. Hadid’s trademark swoops and curves that make up the facade are carried through to the building’s interiors, which she also designed.

Hadid and Boffi created kitchen islands from sculpted white marble and high-gloss formed millwork. The kitchens also feature Gaggenau appliances, including two ovens: one a regular oven and the other a steam oven. The bathrooms are also a Hadid/Boffi collaboration and feature marble floors, rainfall shower heads, and six-foot-long tubs. Depending on the apartment, units will come with a private balcony off of the bedroom and another off of the living room.

In addition to the luxury apartment units themselves, the building will also be jam-packed with amenities. Some amenities, like the 75-foot sky lit pool, a dedicated wellness level, and a spa suite, you would expect to find in a luxury building such as this, but others are more unique.

For example, an automated garage will open via a key fob and will then lift the car to a parking spot like an elevator. There will also be a private 12-seat IMAX theater that the developers hope will show films at the same times they premiere in theaters. Other amenities include a private lounge and entertainment suite with a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a lobby with 24/7 staff, and four side-by-side elevators.

According to Dezeen, a series of gallery spaces is also set to open around the building. Related Companies, the project’s developer, recently announced the creation of 15 new gallery spaces on West 28th and West 27th streets.

Some of the galleries will be located in 520 West 28th while others, dubbed the High Line Nine, will be located in neighboring buildings. The gallery spaces in the Hadid-designed building will provide between 1,000 sf and 5,400 sf of space. The High Line Nine will be between 650 and 1,800 sf and share a catering kitchen and restroom facilities for events. A wine bar and café will also be located on site.

The galleries in 520 West 28th will open first in spring 2017. The High Line Nine are scheduled to open later in 2017.

Currently, about 50% of the units in 520 West 28th Street are in contract.
