New construction is in demand in metropolitan hubs around the world, and some major developments will open their doors to new residents in 2018. From New York City’s highly anticipated Hudson Yards to Zaha Hadid’s final project, One Thousand Museum, Mansion Global looks at some of the year’s buzziest new developments.
Fifteen Hudson Yards, New York City
Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in U.S. history, according to its developer, Related Companies, and is the largest of all projects in the city since Rockefeller Center.
Commercial anchor tenants arrived in 2016, but the first people to call Hudson Yards home will be moving in by the end of this year.
“It’s the only live-work-play environment in New York,” says Sherry Tobak, a senior vice president at Related Sales. “And it’s the first new neighborhood in New York City for many, many years.”
Fifteen Hudson Yards, which has 285 condominiums and 106 rentals, will top out at 910 feet and will be move-in ready by the fourth quarter of 2018, Ms. Tobak says.
Homes range from US$3.9 million for a two-bedroom to a US$32 million duplex penthouse.
Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the Rockwell Group, the residences, at the corner of West 30th Street and 11th Avenue in Manhattan, feature oak flooring and cabinetry, Miele appliances, and marble countertops in the kitchen. There are also enviable views of the Hudson River and city skyline.
Amenities include a fitness center, 75-foot pool, dining suite, children’s center and beauty bar. Ismael Leyva Architects is the Executive Architect and Residences Designer for 15 Hudson Yards..
The Residence at Nine Elms, London
Nine Elms is another mixed-use development taking over a once-industrial area on London’s South Bank, aiming to transform the area along the Thames River into a business and residential district.
Overlooking the Thames, Nine Elms Park, and the recently opened U.S. Embassy, the Residence at Nine Elms is part of that project. It will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments over three buildings: Haines House, Glacier House, and Madeira Tower. The first group will be completed by this summer or fall, according to Yvonne Liu at JLL, the brokerage handling the launch. All 320 units in the three buildings are set to be finished by the end of 2019. Sales began in the spring of 2017.
The site was part of the London to Brighton railway, and that served as the inspiration for the interiors, said GRID architects, the firm that designed the space. Apartments—with three-bedrooms starting at about £1,175,000, or roughly US$1.66 million-—feature state-of-the-art kitchens, high-end finishes and spa-like bathrooms. Amenities include a 24-hour concierge service, a fitness center and cinema.
One Thousand Museum, Miami
Zaha Hadid Architects
Construction on Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum, which began in 2015, is set to be completed this year. The Pritzker Prize-winning architect died in 2016, and the 700-foot tower in Miami was her first residential skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. Overlooking Museum Park and with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay, the tower will have 83 residences, including duplex townhomes, full-floor penthouses and a duplex penthouse, according to the architects.
Not surprisingly, they have planned for every amenity, including 24-hour concierge service, a helipad and a double-height aquatic center overlooking both the skyline and ocean. Homes feature floor-to-ceiling windows, multiple balconies, spa-like bathrooms with European finishes and custom kitchens by Gatto Cucine with Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances.
The tower boasts the innovative design for which the architect was known. It uses lightweight concrete panels—5,000 in fact—to create a flowing facade. Half-floor residences start at US$5.85 million, and penthouses start at US$19.4 million.
Townhomes are 8,360 square feet and start at $11.9 million.
