Manhattan, NY DXA studio and HAP Investments celebrated the topping out of HAP 8, located at 215 and 225 West 28th St. in the Chelsea neighborhood. Rising 20 stories and totaling 312,500 s/f, the side-by-side towers feature 87 condominium residences and 112 rental units.
“We are incredibly excited to see these two building emerge out of the Chelsea skyline, and to experience the expansive vistas that are afforded first hand,” said Wayne Norbeck, partner and co-founder of DXA studio. “This topping out marks a pivotal milestone in the making of HAP 8, and we can’t wait to see the completion of the full offerings of this ambitious development come to reality.”
“Working with DXA studio, we are creating a new residential destination in the evolution of the Chelsea neighborhood,” said Eran Polack, CEO-NY & co-founder of HAP Investment Developers.
“We are excited to share in this milestone moment.”
The two buildings will share amenities including a parking facility, a 60-foot long swimming pool, gym, sauna, steam room, kid’s playroom, yoga room, roof deck with smart grill and pizza oven, storage and bicycle parking.
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2021.
The south facing elevations capitalize on sun and views, with increasingly large windows and views to the Hudson River, Staten Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building. Rising up the building one notices a faceted column and spandrel grid, with inlaid metallic details providing highlights against cast shadows, on the street front.
