Sales launch at Thomas Heatherwick-designed condo

A Chelsea condo building with a bubble-esque facade is the latest architectural bauble from British designer Thomas Heatherwick—the mind behind Vessel at Hudson Yards and Little Island at Pier 55—to call the west side of Manhattan home. The 515 West 18th Street project known as Lantern House, named for its modern take on bay windows, has officially launched sales.

The project, developed by Related Companies will have two towers connected by a glass-enclosed lobby that sit on either side of the High Line at 18th Street. The buildings—one standing 10 stories, and the other at 22—will have 181 apartments between them, ranging from one- to four-bedroom units. Pricing starts just shy of $1.4 million and tops out at approximately $17 million. Tenants are expected to move in come fall.
