Hadid’s New York healthy homes cost $50m

Architect Zaha Hadid’s first high-rise apartment building in New York City features a new innovation – filtered air.

Set to open in 2017 the 520 West 28th Street will sell for up to $50m.

The 39-apartment complex will rise to 11 stories — with 21 floors that interlock like a jigsaw puzzle.

Before residents even move in, oxygen will be filtered four times and then pumped into every apartment unit.

New York City’s air quality technically meets national standards, but it still measures more than double the recommended level of PM 2.5 — air particles that can lodge in the lungs and cause disease.
