    I agree with Rollie. Without the chic-ness of the HL, that place would have been considered a wasteland and developers would have thrown up the cheapest, brick boxes imaginable. Look at W 42 St and the zebra building as an example.

    I also concur- almost everything going up on the west side in this area - Chelsea/Hells Kitchen (except for right next to the highline), is darn near abysmal.

    High Line-Hugging Office Building Rises On Washington

    by Jessica Dailey



    With all the new condo buildings rising around the High Line, we almost forgot about the preservationist-hated glassy office building at 860 Washington Street. Field Condition recently swung by the site, where construction is up to the second floor. The project was approved by the Board of Standards & Appeals back in 2009, after the original design was shortened by a few stories and a tiny cantilever was eliminated. James Carpenter Design Associates created the 10-story building, which is across the street from the Standard Hotel. It's unclear if the design has been tweaked at all since the 2009 reveal, but Field Condition says it will include "terra cotta, zinc, and perforated metals as well as concrete and glass."

    The two-building project, whose 10-story volumes straddle either side of the High Line, will join the ranks of Foster’s 551W21, Selldorf’s 520 West Chelsea, and Shigeru Ban’s Metal Shutter House as a timeless, modern addition that contextually blends into the west side’s no-nonsense streetscape.

    Developed by Harlan Berger’s Centaur Properties, Jardim’s site is situated at 525 West 25th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues–just a single starchitect’s lot away from the High Line. Construction at the currently muddy site has commenced, and we got a first-hand look at the progress.
    ...
    The residences will range from one to four bedrooms, and many will have private outdoor space. Amenities include an indoor swimming pool, parking garage, children’s playroom, massage room, fitness center, and a private garden. Sales are expected to begin in early 2015, though the project is not expected to be completed until late 2016 or early 2017

    A New Bjarke Ingels or Rem Koolhaas-Designed Development Could Be Coming to the High Line

    Posted Today, February 11, 2015 By Diane Pham


    The High Line is continuing its trajectory as the destination for the city’s most exciting new architecture, and it looks like another starchitect could soon join the already impressive roster of designers making their mark on the area. The New York Post reports that HFZ Capital Group is currently in the works to bring a “monumental” new structure to a lot located next to the elevated park at 76 11th Avenue—a site that spans from 17th to 18th and across 10th to 11th Avenues. Although the parcel is still in contract (expected to close in April), HFZ has reportedly already tapped Bjarke Ingels (BIG) and Rem Koolhaas for initial drawings, which were revealed by the company’s head, Ziel Feldman, yesterday at the Young Men’s/Women’s Real Estate Association luncheon. The renderings reportedly showed somewhat “triangular structures that won’t block views”.


    Post reporter Lois Weiss, who was at the lunch, elaborated on that further, describing BIG’s proposal as “a low building for a hotel and retail and a higher one with more bulk at the top for the tower closest to the water. The project will include a small park while a porte cochere could run between the buildings.” The park is apparently being added to make sure the two buildings don’t face each other to ensure privacy.

    The development is slated to encompass a residential, retail and hotel destination of around 400 feet—or about 38 stories. There will also be a focus on smaller units to serve condo buyers more concerned with total costs than spacious living areas.

    The parcel, which comes with the right to develop more than 760,000 square feet, is estimated to have cost the HFZ somewhere between $600 million to $700 million. Currently on the site is a parking lot and a Manhattan Mini-Storage facility. And just across the way is Frank Gehry’s IAC building.
