    Default High Line Area Development

    With the renewal of the West Chelsea Highline and the accompanying development boom surrounding, I thought it would be a good idea to stick many of these developments into a single thread.

    From Triplemint.com

    "A 20-story condo tower designed by Jean Nouvel is to be built on a parking lot at 11th Avenue and 19th Street. The project is a team effort by Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors and Cape Advisors.
    Gwathmey Seigel & Associates has been hired by the owners of the Chelsea Market to explore the feasibility of adding residential units on top of the gourmet food shopping complex. Trust us: it's feasible.
    Related and Taconic Investment Partners plan a 23-story tower to include 200 condos and 250 rental apartments on the east side of 10th Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets.
    Robert A.M. Stern Architects has been hired to design two mixed use buildings for a huge residential project planned by Edison Properties at 10th Avenue between 17th and 18th Streets.
    One block to the north the Georgetown Company is planning a residential building by Frank Gehry to complement the Gehry office building now rising on 11th Avenue for Barry Diller's IAC/InterActiveCorp.
    On 18th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues Madison Equities is building a 12-story condo designed by Audrey Matlock. You can see it here..
    An 11-story residential building designed by Annabelle Seldorf is to replace a three-story warehouse on 19th Street.
    Tamarkin Architects is planning a 12-story condo tower on the southeast corner of 10th Avenue and 19th Street.
    <b>Leviev Boymelgreen is building a residential tower at 23rd Street and 10th, where a gas station was recently closed and torn down.</b>"



    Go to the GKV Architects Website:

    http://www.gkvarchitects.com/ -> Portfolio -> Building Design -> 5th Icon to the left "10 Chelsea"

    While an address is not listed, the lot looks to be the SW corner of 23rd and 10th. IMO a decent enough time that will complete the 23rd St. gateway into the West Chelsea area.

    While it's nice enough, I can't help but feel that such a creative and influential area deserves something more spectacular and creative.

    Still, I cannot wait to see how this area continues to develop.

    Here is another one...


    245 10th Avenue:






    Designed 2005, Construction 2006-2008

    Sitting adjacent to the High Line tracks and wrapped in a combination of perforated and punched metal and tinted, fritted, and clear glass, this condominium tower in the West Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan evokes the images of steam trains. The 43,000 SF residential tower, which consists of 24 dwelling units along with ground floor art galleries, is wrapped in a continuous metal and glass skin. This gradient skin, whose pattern was arrived at through the digital manipulation and abstraction of images of steam clouds, is accomplished through varying punches and perforations within a panelized system of semi-reflective stainless steel. The skin will be fabricated via a CNC (computer-numerically-controlled) turret punch, a machine that allows for great variation in the shapes and depths of the indentations and cuts in the metal surface. When viewed from a distance, the punches and indentation add relief and shadow, replicating, to a degree, the gradated shades of gray within clouds themselves. Lastly, the glazing system provides privacy at the level of the High Line Park as well as openness, lightness, and air over the entirety of the project.

    There is already an existing thread about the High Line's restoration, which includes articles and details on many projects in that area.

    If you feel that is a more appropriate place then by all means we can post there. It just seemed to me the existing Highline thread was more concerned with the it's actual development with some added spill the surrounding area.

    Nah... We can post new projects close to the high line here and post news and progress about the Highline itself on the other thread. It will make more sense that way.

    A chunk of the strip of 23rd on the south side from the High Line to Chelsea Park is ripe for transition to Residential -- it would be sad if that entire block ended up being a line of uninspired boxes.

    Dull and disapointing, but it could end up looking quite <gulp> "handsome".

    Default 245 10th Avenue

    From the 7/14 NY Post:

    Philadelphia-based developer David Grasso is loading up on city projects.
    Grasso just closed on 245 Tenth Ave., an L-shaped parcel off the corner of 24th St. for $15.37 million from Alf Naman. Grasso will develop a small, 20-condo building. The project will be next to the High Line park created out of the former rail line. "It will be ultra-luxury," Grasso promised.

    I wonder if Grasso will use the design originally commisioned by Alf Naman and posted earlier in this thread. In the last two days they erected a blue fence around the property on 10th and around the corner on 24th street, to begin demolition.

    This top-heavy building starts out narrow, rising on a 25-foot-by-100-foot Chelsea lot, but at the sixth floor, it starts to widen, cantilevering over its neighbors to the east and west. Caliper Design principal Stephen Lynch explained that the façade is clad in a custom-designed metal panel system that provides an irregular texture to the building’s surface.

    Rather than look to the past as a reference, Della Valle + Bernheimer chose to respond to the design of an adjacent (and as-yet unbuilt) building by architect Audrey Matlock. “[Matlock’s] building is all delicate planes and irregular surfaces,” said partner Jared Della Valle. “Ours is about mass, determined by the building’s L-shaped plan and setbacks.”

    Wow, what a collection of abstract architecture this neighborhood will be in about five years.
