A boutique office in a bustling neighborhood
28&7 is a new Class-A boutique office building in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Located at the corner of 28th Street and Seventh Avenue, directly adjacent to the Fashion Institute of Technology, the building stands at a dynamic crossroads—with the NoMad district to the east and Penn Station and Hudson Yards just minutes to the west.
The twelve-story building features a bold yet timelessly elegant facade, expressed as a structural grid of black glazed terracotta. With smooth, sculptural contours, the custom-designed curved terracotta profiles catch and reflect light. The reflective black glaze distinguishes the building from its masonry neighbors and creates an elegant silhouette along Seventh Avenue. The terracotta grid is equally divided along a nominal ten-foot module that allows for flexible tenant fit outs, from open workplaces to perimeter offices. The grid spacing widens at the ground level, maximizing visibility for the storefronts and the lobby.
