    HL23 Almost Ready to Show Off its Big Glass

    August 24, 2009, by Pete

    The cantilevering condolerium from architect Neil Denari called HL23, which reaches out over the High Line above West 23rd Street, is in the final stages of structural fire-proofing and is about to get some glass. Gargantuan glass! What's to come are no run-of-the-mill panes, but some of the largest slabs of glass ever installed in a residential high rise. They measure up to 11' high by 6' wide and, when put together, create vista opportunities running nearly 40' long in each unit. The glass is low-iron and color-free, which results in a level of clarity that may bring about The Standard Part II. Avert your eyes, kiddies!

    The glass and stainless steel curtain wall was conceived in collaboration with the New York office of facade specialists Front, Inc., whose website offers a gallery of the glass going up at HL23. Contractor Via Glass put the panels together, incorporating thin stainless steel mullions that are claimed to be nearly invisible, giving the facade an even more transparent appearance. White ceramic frit, following the pattern of the building's steel structure, has been added to certain areas of the glass, allowing for a bit of privacy here and there. Deluxe interiors by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen are top of the line and appropriately minimally modern, but they can't help but be second banana to the wide open spaces on view outside the big windows. For High Line lovers there is one swell duplex up top, complete with nine rooms and a wrap-around terrace offering full park views, available for a dizzying $11.5M.

    Construction Watch: A Touch of Glass at HL23

    September 22, 2009, by Joey




    Consider the above a sneak preview of Curbed's first big fall premier: HL23, avant-garde architect Neil Denari's meditation on glass and spaceships along the second phase of the High Line, is—OMG!—getting glassed. We've had previews of the glass panels before, but now it's finally showtime. Via a tipster's lens, check out the backside of the West Chelsea condo building, right next to frienemy Highline 519 on West 23rd Street.





    According to StreetEasy, three units in the 11-unit building are in contract, but here's a bad sign: the building's website is currently down. Here's all the rendering porn to get you up to speed.

    From Curbed today,
    HL23 Adds Metal to Glass, Resulting in Mild Brain Explosion
    Monday, October 12, 2009, by Pete
    When we got a first peek of the molded metal panels planned for avant-garde architect Neil Denari's HL23 in West Chelsea we were warned by the NMDA crew that the mock-ups weren't a true visual representation of what would rise above the High Line. Now there is glass as well as flashy sheets of stainless going up at West 23rd Street and close inspection shows some subtle changes. In the mock-up each panel had the same swoopy indent at dead center, but now the panels are varied, with the indents off-set and moving across the panels, giving the east face a jolt of energy. The inset side windows appear pretty much the same, but look like they've been set a bit deeper into the metal facade. One thing we hadn't paid much attention to before is how intimately the lordly HL23 meets the High Line down below.

    Old maps and photos of the High Line show a little spur on the west side of the tracks running from West 21st Street up to and just beyond West 23rd Street, ending right at the front door of HL23. Some plans for Phase II of the elevated park, set to open about one year from now, show a glassed-in elevator rising to meet that spur on the sidewalk where HL23, the High Line and West 23rd Street come together. Up above the rails a big tilted expanse of fritted glass looms over what is designed to be a major entry point to the High Line. That could make life interesting for the folks who take up residence in the full floor condos down low. And, depending on what goes on inside HL23, it could be a load of fun for High Liners, too.

    The CURBED post:

    And info on the Triplex PH ...

    515 WEST 23RD STREET PH TRIPLEX CONDOMINIUM

    Brown Harris Stevens

    The Penthouse Triplex in architect Neil Denari's stunning HL23 is a masterpiece of Contemporary design. This 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 2 half-bathroom home makes up 6,176 square feet of luxurious interior space and is complemented by 1,173 square feet of terrace. Residents will enjoy breathtaking panoramas to the north, south, and east as well as intimate views of the lyrical new High Line Park. Building amenities include a fitness center and a two-shift doorman. This neighborhood of art galleries, sophisticated restaurants and cutting edge boutiques completes the required ingredients for an incomparable urban lifestyle.

    A private keyed elevator leads to the gracious foyer of the Penthouse Triplex. The grand dining room is accented by a woodburning fireplace and wide-plank European oak floor by Dinesen which extends into the eat-in kitchen and throughout the entire residence. The chef's kitchen features custom-built Italian cabinetry by Poliform, an impressive array of Miele appliances, and Corian countertops. An office and media room are also located on the main floor. Powder rooms on the two upper levels are exquisitely well-appointed and feature porcelain tile and chrome faucets.

    Located one floor below are the equally impressive private accommodations. The lavish master bedroom features a woodburning fireplace, an oversized dressing room, and a sumptuous master bath suite. Bathroom amenities include stone slab floors, an oversized Corian sunken bathtub, and a separate double shower. Other en suite baths on this level include Zuma tubs, honed stone floors, and Duravit vanities. Exceptional attention to detail is of the utmost importance. To this end, the climate in all the bedrooms is controlled by an Aprilaire sensor with remote thermostat. Moreover, privacy is assured by motorized controlled shades.

    On the very top floor, a wonderful sense of indoor-outdoor living is created by the grand 40-foot by 23-foot living room and entertainment space. Surrounding this magnificent glass living room are two breathtaking walls of Capoferri glass that open at the touch of a button seamlessly inviting the outdoors in. Unparalleled views of Manhattan and the Hudson river span the horizon from the beautifully lit terrace.

    Cant wait to see it completed. Would be nice to see the interior and the view before they close the construction site?

    Gorgeous.

    There could be some interesting interplay between the lower floors with the slanted windows and the High Line right below. I'm envisioning wild young things spread across the grass, putting on a show for the parkgoers. But it's late now, so maybe that explains it ...

    I'm not seeing the connection between the glassed front and the metal sides--looks like two buildings stuck together.

    I'm not enjoying the interaction between the metal panels and the glazed areas. Hopefully it looks better when it is finished. Overall I still love this project.
