Internationally Acclaimed Soo K. Chan of SCDA Architects Announced as Principal Architect
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- The Bauhouse Group has unveiled renderings for 515 High Line, one of Manhattan's most coveted developments located at 515 West 29th Street. Bauhouse has selected Singapore architect Soo K. Chan, founder of the award-winning firm SCDA Architects, as the Principal Architect for the luxury condominium which is uniquely situated at the center of the 90-degree bend of the High Line park at 29th Street, making it the only site with High Line views on two sides.
"Given the unique location of 515 West 29th Street, we sought a designer with the global experience, vision and sophistication to match the high caliber of new residential development in what has become the modern art capital of the world," said Joseph Beninati, Managing Member of Bauhouse. "Soo Chan's stunning loft-style interiors evoke an understated appeal and modernity, and the exterior façade, with steel and glass that appears to curve -- as inspired by the High Line's bend at 29th Street -- will incorporate the High Line both for onlookers and residents in a way that no other property will."
The $125 million development, slated for completion in late 2015, will offer sophisticated residences with expansive outdoor spaces, double height ceilings, and breathtaking views. The homes will range from 2,100 to 4,400 square feet and from $5 million to $25 million in price. The building will also tout three penthouses with substantial private outdoor spaces and twenty-two-foot ceilings. The development will be complemented by a remarkable ground floor retail/gallery space at the base of the building.
As one of Asia's most renowned architects, Mr. Chan received his Masters in Architecture at Yale University. His impressive body of work spans private homes, public works, furniture, resorts and residential towers, which have been critically acclaimed for their refined design, modern appeal and highly technical foundation. SCDA Architects' portfolio of work spans more than 30 major international countries and cities.
515 West 29th Street is slated to begin sales in fall 2014. To learn more about purchasing a luxury condominium at 515 High Line, please contact the building's broker, Noble Black of the Corcoran Group, at 212-444-7926, or [email protected].
