    ^^Plus extra chilly on those cold winter nites. With those slanted windows it must be quite difficult to apply any sort of window treatments (shades).

    the hearst tower has a much, much more complicated facade and has these "sun shades" that work automatically.

    Is the building not air conditioned?

    I can't imagine there not being a solution of some sort, especially for anyone who can afford to live there.

    Sure.

    Trouble is, that "solution" comes out of the hides of polar bears.

    Its been thought of. The slanted side is on the north side, the sun in NYC is always to the south.

    Except when you wake up Saturday morning with a hangover.

    At HL23 the big slanted side actually faces east, and overhangs the High Line. The south face also has a bit of a slant (but to a smaller degree, and only here and there on the upper floors).

    Nothing in the building's design works to reduce solar gain at all. Its all glass. A/C will be used big time.

    A cool 3D View of HL23.

    According to THIS (HL23 Triplex PH: FP & info, [pdf]) there are some operable shades included:

    Master Bathroom En Suite:

    > Floor to ceiling glass with operable window with bottom up shade for privacy

    Third Bathroom:

    > Floor-to-ceiling glass with operable window with bottom up shade for privacy

    Living Room:

    > Motorized shades along North/South facade

    Some info HERE (Cantilevering Over Manhattan’s High Line [pdf]) about the glass:

    HL23 is a concrete and steel frame structure with diagonal perimeter bracing that allows for a minimum of
    interior columns that would interrupt the flow of open, usable space within interiors. An extensive research
    and development phase was undertaken in the two-year design process to arrive at a precision-engineered
    structure: The spandrel-free north and south curtain walls of HL23, conceived in collaboration with Front
    Inc. of New York City, consist of some of the largest single-pane windows ever used in residential high-rise
    construction
    . Façade window panels are over eleven feet high by six feet wide, creating soaring fl oor to
    ceiling visual spans ranging from 38 to 45 feet in every home, allowing unrivaled intimacy with the plantings
    and paths of the restored and re-invented High Line, and breathtaking, seemingly infinite panoramas north
    and south from each unit. With low-iron, colorless and perfectly clear glass, the windows of HL23 — some
    operable to bring fresh air circulation into interiors — will achieve additional drama through the use of
    exceptionally thin, stainless steel mullions that seem to disappear. Patterned white ceramic frit will be applied
    to carefully selected areas of the building’s windows in co-ordination with the functions of the spaces behind
    them
    , following the dynamic lines of the structure’s steel bracing, protecting privacy and minimizing glare.
    The building’s east façade will have the appearance of a monumental public sculpture clad with a system
    of custom-designed, three-dimensionally curving stainless steel panels, each 11.6 feet wide. Designed by
    Neil Denari and fabricated on a unique oversized die press by TISI S.A. of Buenos Aires, Argentina, the
    pattern of the east façade will move along the dramatically shaped skin in much the same way a printed
    pattern moves across an avant-garde garment, slipping into different visual effects with the change of the
    body beneath. HL23’s steel surface will also read differently throughout the day and during different weather
    patterns, glowing and seeming to change color with the movement of the sun and the passing of clouds. At
    the center of this façade, the structure and its skin will appear to split apart, revealing windows and cast ever
    changing shadows in a radical play of light.
