    Some very interesting projects indeed. The area seems to be a hotbed of interesting architecture.

    But they're all very stumpy.

    Usually it's the smaller buildings that are architectural gems. They allow for more creativity.

    Personally, I'm very much looking forward to seeing this area remade over the next few years.

    Yes, but isn't most good architecture? I do wish they were taller or located further south since Chelsea Piers will block large portions of each project from the water.


    Replace SOM with Piano because of the Whitney. It's ashame the city's biggest developer is building the most forgettable building, Related's Caledonia.

    Hey Derek, thanks for posting all that information. I had no idea so many famous architects had projects in the works for that area, especially Rogers. They should all look fantastic, especially Nouvel's.

    It's great to see a high standard being set, so that future projects in the neighborhood will have to have incredible designs just to be noticed. Great stuff.

    This area will be cacophonic but interesting. It will give the lie to NIMBY claims that context rules with common themes of materials, style and massing.

    Or when the dust settles, will the contextual commonality turn out to be shared exhibitionism?

    I guess the exciting transect being created invites a spirit of exhibitionism. There will be architectural curiosities to pepper the pathway. Gleaming twenty-first century fantasies planted along the adaptively reused urban artifacts of yesterday. It'll be splendid new must-see on every tourist itinerary, and a fantastic new part of my life. I think after it's established, people will hardly believe they were going to tear the whole thing down.
    Now, can they hurry up already, I can hardly wait!!

    I have to add, I'm wild about Denari's design!

    In post 117, Derek posted an attachment for 200 11th Avenue. The other one is 520 West 19th street.

    Thanks -- I missed that one ... looks good.

    Google MAP puts 200 11th at the SW corner of 24th / 11th across from the Chelsea Park / USPS Building.

    The second attatchment is a detail of the previously mentioned Annabelle Seldorf project at 200 11th Avenue. (18 stories)
    I guess it won't look like this...


    200 11th Avenue:









    This proposed building was part of a design competition for a new 20-unit luxury residential development in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. Measuring 24 stories tall and providing 55,000 gross square feet of living space, the structure's irregular geometry was devised as the solution to a series of complex zoning issues associated with the site. The articulation of the facade, which is comprised of translucent glass, clear glass, and louvers, derives from the program requirements of the individual units. These units follow an interlocking scheme, inspired by traditional Japanese joinery, that maximizes views of the Hudson River to the west.

    Wink We need to get started on that website

    Rather than sob, I'll remain optimistic that Selldorf designed something better.

    Construction is under way at both 520 W. 19 St. (site behind the black crane) and Nouvel's 100 Eleventh Ave. (red --->).
