Renowned architect Zaha Hadid has won the world over numerous times with her architectural feats, but that doesn't mean there aren't still some firsts for her; in this case, 520 West 28th Street will be her first New York City High Line commission. An 11 storey condominium, 520 West 28th Street boasts "floor-to-ceiling glass walls, wrap-around terraces for each unit, and amenities like an indoor pool and spa," according to PSFK.

What really makes 520 West 28th Street stand out, however, is its unusual stack-like silhouette as well as its chevron pattern on the facade. A popular and bold pattern right now, it gives the building a subtle futuristic feel that captures the vibrant and historical essence of the location. Hadid reveals, "With an arrangement that reinvents the spatial experience, each residence will have its own distinctive identity, offering multiple perspectives and exciting views of the neighbourhood."
