    The photo that has a view of the classic brick building does highlight the stark contrast between many of these new buildings in the high-line area and much of the existing stock of traditionally inspired brick buildings.

    That building, HI23, is taking longer to build than the projected time line: so let's wait and see if they complete by this summer. My guess is that if it is in fact finished this summer - it will be the very end on of the summer season.

    Thanks for all the fine photographs, the aRt tExt is a bit 'hard to read': but the photos are GREAT.

    Cheers.

    Thumbs up

    Perfect building for this area. It treats the High Line Park like the architectural show case it should be. All future project that flank the high line should be reviewed and approved by some sort of arts comission to ensure high quality designs.

    Thursday afternoon there was a gang of hard-hatted developer types up top of HL23 checking things out.

    Methinks they are trying to finalise the Penthouse design.. using the largest glass possible for views like that is a must..

    Getting ready for that next big bump out on this one. This is an artful (and no doubt very expensive) way to do a cantilever.

    They're up to the height of the building next door, (forgot its name). So it has almost topped out I think.

    Not nearly to the top -- it has four more stories to go (all bumping out to lean over the HL). Not to mention the mechanical stuff up top.

    HL23 is slated to be 14 stories / 165'

    The finsihed one next door at 519 W 23 is a mere 12 stories / 138'

    I wasn't far off after all. HL23 has topped out.

    Construction Watch: HL23 Tops Out Over the High Line


    Friday, May 22, 2009, by Pete





    Wow. All that steel just to support Old Glory.




    Spring continues to bring forth hardy sprouts of development, and there are few we're liking more than HL23 growing strong above the High Line along West 23rd Street. Ironworkers have now topped-out the superbly angular superstructure, and they've planted Old Glory up top to signal the occasion. The futuristic stack of what will be nine super-luxe glass condos from architect Neil Denari can be seen from all the way down Tenth Avenue. Sidewalk surfers might enjoy that view for far longer than previously planned: The Boymelgreen project on the corner of Tenth and West 23rd known as 10 Chelsea sits fallow, with no movement since November. For those seeking other viewpoints check out the side streets below 23rd, where the raised rail lines rise against little bits of open space. From there the tower of open framework appears to bend out, offering greetings to the old railway down below.
