Tower Tuesdays!!! What feels like quarantine day 527, is actually 527 West 27th St. Today’s feature is the new twin development, Jardim! Both towers top out at 11 stories and are designed by the Portuguese architect, Isay Weinfeld. Located in the starchitect studded West Chelsea and comprising of 36 ultra-luxury condominiums. The dual-tower development has kept a low profile from its neighbors which consist of Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th St, among others. The two towers will be connected by a lush, multi-level landscaped central garden that’s connected by a stone spiral staircase of Weinfeld’s design and planted with evergreens and flowering trees. Just under 50% of the development’s condos are now in contract. The four apartments that are currently listed range from a 1,545sq ft 2bd asking $3.995 million and a 2,854sq ft 4bd asking $7.16 million with average prices asking $2,409/ft. Weinfeld’s bespoke designs elevate Jardim’s kitchens to the realm of finely crafted furniture. Doors and walls are wrapped in honey-hued American oak, with matching Italian-made cabinetry by Molteni. Dornbracht faucets and Molteni satin-finish stainless steel countertops and backsplashes add a luminous counterpoint to handsome floors of oil-finished oak or richly mottled quartz. The residences of Jardim boast a unique floor-to-ceiling door and window system with telescoping glass panels of uncommonly large dimensions. Designed with slender, virtually invisible frames and engineered for thermal and acoustic insulation, the pristine panes of glass effortlessly glide open to admit what the legendary modernist architect Le Corbusier, a proponent of great windowed expanses, called “the vastness of the outside world, the unity, impossible to counterfeit, of a landscape with tempest and radiant calm.” The pocket windows that Weinfeld designed for Jardim are equally inventive, with gliding panes that neatly retract into adjoining walls like interior pocket doors, opening up interior spaces to the outdoors without obstructions. Sales are exclusively through Douglas Elliman. That wraps up this week’s Tower Tuesdays. If you’d like to know more, you know what to do! Thanks for stopping by!
