    I wouldn't get too excited. It seems as if it's been at the same height for a couple months. I went by on a recent weekday morning and there were no people on the site. I certainly hope this amazing project isn't stalled.

    no, i saw people working on it. in fact if you look at the bottom right-hand shot on the top floor (by the barbed wire) you can see a construction worker leaning over the side looking in the alleyway next to the highline. also, you can see the crane is up and active.

    perhaps the work may be slowed down, i have no idea, but it was definately on today.

    Chelsea Modern looks great, imagine if it was built on a corner lot.

    From curbed/wire inbox:
    WEST CHELSEAŚ
    Though construction seemed to be zipping along when we checked in on the site in November, a tipster thinks architect Neil Denari's HL23 along the High Line has hit a wall: "Work has been stopped for over a month -- death rumors are flying." Not so fast! A building rep tells us, "There is an "errection sequence" for this very special structure that requires shoring of steel at certain phases as it rises, via pouring of concrete. We are right at one of these moments now (at seventh floor) but the weather has stalled the pouring of the concrete. The thing is totally full throttle on and plowing ahead."

    i dk anything about it much less how amazing this one just below union square will be -- i suppose kind of a poor man's foster/hearst? still, it always amazes me when somebody cares enough to save a classy facade shell:



    edit: ^ ugh. its to be more kaufman crapola, something called rising sun:

    Great opportunity ^

    Instead we get more banality and cheapness from the deadly duo of Chang & Kaufman.

    This is one of their worst IMHO.

    It would be even worse if they hadn't kept the old facade.

    It's hard to speculate how many developers would have done that, but they're clearly on the right side in this instance.

    Which makes it all the sadder that this same team didn't keep the facade of the little beauty down at 50 Trinity Place and build up from inside of that rather than demolishing the whole thing.

    I thought the same thing about the Trinity Place gem. Is the POS hotel even rising there? I hope that it's been killed by the recession.
