The project's teaser website launched and the building's official name - Lantern House - was announced. To mark the occasion, three new visuals offering a sneak preview of Heatherwick's striking design have been released

Heatherwick’s vision for Lantern House is a response to the neighborhood’s maritime warehouses and pairs hand-laid antiqued grey brickwork with industrial metal detailing and a dramatic reinvention of the bay window lining the textured grid exteriors of Lantern House’s two towers. Designed by Heatherwick specifically for Lantern House, the lantern-shaped bay windows maximize light and views while adding charm and uniqueness to the homes on the interior. Each home features reinvented bay windows many with window seats, the ideal perch for taking in the unparalleled views of the Hudson River, the skyline, the High Line and Chelsea's beautiful architecture.

When sales launch in 2020, Related will introduce 181 elegantly appointed condominium residences uniquely crafted to take advantage of the building’s architecture and location. Designed from the inside out, each home features over 10’ ceilings and a layout designed to complement Heatherwick’s oversized bay windows, invigorating each residence with new dimension.

Lantern House features one- to four-bedroom residences, many with private setback terraces, and an assortment of expansive penthouses. Pricing will start at $1.7 million. Sales at Lantern House are slated to commence in January 2020. Working in partnership with Related Sales LLC, Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is the co-exclusive marketing and sales agent, continuing its tradition of excellence and leadership in the high-design luxury property sector.
