Manhattan, NY According to HAP Investments, sales have launched for Maverick Chelsea, a new construction condominium development located at 215 West 28th St. in the Flower District. DXA Studio was commissioned to create the building’s signature exterior architecture and interiors. The firm took special consideration to anchor its design in health and wellness, incorporating biophilic design elements that encourage residents to connect with the natural environment.
Maverick Chelsea features 87 residences, which include one- to four-bedroom homes, in addition to a collection of penthouses. It also includes a collection of indoor and outdoor amenities spread across three levels. Sales and marketing for Maverick Chelsea is exclusively being handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing and the Eklund | Gomes Team.
“We are excited to announce the launch of sales for Maverick Chelsea, a bold building designed by an award-winning team featuring homes with exquisite design finishes and a carefully curated suite of amenities,” said Eran Polack, CEO and co-founder of HAP Investments. “Maverick Chelsea’s ideally located at the nexus of some of New York’s most exciting neighborhoods, and we have seen strong interest from potential buyers especially as they are expected to have the opportunity to move in this fall.”
DXA Studio has designed major projects around the world, including the Guggenheim Helsinki, The Highline Ballroom and The Midtown Viaduct. For Maverick Chelsea, the firm anchored many design elements to reference nature. Starting with the exterior architecture, the building’s facade features sculpted, geometric concrete panels and painted metallic bronze inset channels. Its design highlights the natural light and shadows that are cast across the facade throughout the day and is also a modern interpretation of the classic masonry featured in the neighborhood’s surrounding stone buildings. The façade also incorporates oversized windows and glass Juliet balconies, allowing homes to be filled with natural light. DXA Studio also took inspiration from the Flower District, incorporating landscaping and greenery throughout the project. Residents enter the building through an angled bronze entrance marquee that hosts a cascade of verdant plantings and lush landscaping that frames the floor-to-ceiling windows inside the lobby.
“Wellness is so important to one’s overall happiness and health. Maverick Chelsea is a compelling offering because mostly every aspect of its design is grounded in wellness and biophilic design,” said Alex Lundqvist of Douglas Elliman’s Eklund | Gomes team and sales director for Maverick Chelsea. “From the architecture, to the interiors and every aspect in between, this building is truly unique and the fact that you are within walking distance from the finest shopping, dining, and recreation activities near the High Line, Hudson Yards, Flower District, and NoMad is an added bonus.”
Each of the 87 residences feature calming interiors, abundant natural light that enters through oversized tilt-and-turn windows, ceiling heights that extend up to 10 ft., and the use of natural materials such as seven-inch European white oak flooring. Select homes also feature Juliette balconies, private outdoor spaces and gardens. All of the kitchens feature custom white oak cabinetry by Scavolini, oil-rubbed bronze metal surrounds, White Fantasy marble leathered finish countertops and backsplashes, Dornbracht mounted platinum matte faucets. Every home has an integrated Miele appliance package which includes a wine fridge. Primary bathrooms are clad in Stellar White honed marble with a chevron mosaic black porcelain accent wall. They include a custom designed white oak vanity with oil-rubbed bronze legs, a custom mirrored medicine cabinet with lighting surrounds, and Dornbracht platinum matte fittings throughout. Most residences feature a free-standing bathtub or an oversized soaking tub with a separate glass-enclosed shower and radiant heat flooring. Secondary bathrooms feature Woodgrain Silver honed marble walls with Gioia Venato honed marble tub aprons or shower surrounds, Oyster matte porcelain tile floors, white oak vanities, and Dornbracht platinum matte fittings throughout. Powder rooms are styled with Misty Black marble stone, suede Venetian plaster walls, rubbed bronze accents, and Dornbracht brushed durabrass fittings.
