An architecturally striking condominium building with plenty of star power to boot, Lantern House, perched along the High Line at 515 West 18th Street, is the first residential project in North America by Thomas Heatherwick, the acclaimed designer of Hudson Yards’ Vessel.
Comprised of 181 elegantly appointed residences, Lantern House is slated to welcome residents in the fourth quarter of 2020. It includes a 22-storey west building and a 10-storey east building, conjoined by a dramatic glass lobby pavilion. Its impressive façade features hand-laid antiqued grey brickwork and a reinvented three-dimensional bay window that maximises light. This connects beautifully with the interiors by March & White, which are inspired by the history of the neighbourhood, complete with warm natural materials, elegant custom finishes, solid core wood doors and integrated appliances – all under striking 10.75-foot-high ceilings.
Outside, residents are able roam around the expansive courtyards planted with maple and magnolia trees that flank a 1,900sqft free-standing glass-walled lobby pavilion. Surrounding the garden are facilities the likes of a library lounge with fireplace, a spectacular rooftop sundeck, a co-working lounge, a 20-guest private dining suite, and a two-storey health club curated by fitness giant Equinox that features a 75-foot long swimming pool, a hot tub, traditional and infrared saunas, a yoga and stretching room, a private training room. It’s all set to satiate the needs of even the most discerning resident.
