The Moinian Group has filed plans for its Zaha Hadid-designed condominium project in Chelsea.

The developer plans to build a 40-unit condo at 220 11th Avenue, New York YIMBY reported. The building will rise 145 feet tall and span 158,000 square feet. The project will also feature a restaurant/bar on the first and second floors and a museum on the cellar and first floors. The specific tenants have not yet been released. SLCE Architects is the architect of record, since Hadid’s London-based firm is not licensed to work in New York.

Moinian revealed last month that Hadid had designed a project for the developer before her death, though few details about the building were available. The Iraqi-British architect died suddenly of a heart attack in March. She was the first female recipient of the Pritzker Prize and was revered for her curvaceous designs.

Hadid’s only other residential building in New York City is Related Companies’ TRData LogoTINY High Line project at 520 West 28th Street. In May, a triplex in the project hit the market for $50 million. [NY YIMBY]Kathryn Brenzel
