    Has anyone heard any gossip?


    Highline 519


    A singular new building by critically acclaimed architect Lindy Roy, High Line 519 is a fusion of contemporary architecture, European elegance and raw Chelsea charm. Each of the 11 exclusive full-floor residences offers unobstructed southern views from floor-to-ceiling glass walls that expand to French balconies with shimmering steel filigree balustrades. Expansive private rear balconies overlook the neighboring High Line, with views of the Hudson River and Empire State Building beyond. Seamless lacquered Varenna kitchens with Tortora glass backsplashes open to light-flooded living space. Glacier glass-tiled master baths are sensual retreats with Macassar ebony and teak integrated spa benches and Toscoquattro vanities. Every detail – from material choices like honed concrete ceilings and wide plank flooring down to the perfect Marc Newson door lever – has been considered. .
    Critically acclaimed for her conceptual approach to architecture, Lindy Roy, principal of ROY Co., recently completed Vitra USA’s headquarters in Manhattan’s Meat Packing District, Hotel QT in Times Square, and a series of retail stores for L’Oreal Paris. Winner of the MoMA/PS1 Young Architects Competition in 2001, her drawinss and model of Poolhouse in Sagaponac were acquired by The Museum of Modern Art for its permanent collection. The firm’s work has been published widely and exhibited both internationally and in the US. In this, her first multi-dwelling residential project for developers Sleepy Hudson, Roy has designed a distinctive building for New York City living

    All I know about this site is that there used to be a theatre there in the 80's and early 90's.

    I walked by the site yesterday and for now it's just barely a hole in the ground -- the old building is down but the site has not been fully cleared nor has any excavation been started.

    What was that building like? Was it smaller than this new replacement?

    Basically a 3 story brick building -- it had been gutted and housed an off-broadway theatre for awhile (the WPA, which was on an upper floor of a building in the 20s on 5th Avenue way back when -- that was where "Little Shop of Horrors" originated back in '82).

    Here are the shows that played at the WPA at 519 W. 23rd (which might give you an indication why it is no longer a theatre): http://www.lortel.org/lla_archive/in...theater&id=265

    Default More construction?

    On the SW corner of 10th Ave and 23rd St - kitty corner to the HighLine519 - there is an empty lot (formerly a gas station?) that will supposedly developed soon. Does anyone have info as to what is going to be built and when ground will be broken?

    I've been quite curious and excited about this location myself, as it is the last remaining link on this very important corner that serves as the gateway into the Chelsea art scene for many pedestrians.

    The developer is Leviev Boymelgreen, I found this somewhere....

    " on the long-term lease for the site, where they will construct a 14-story rental development of over 100,000 s/f.. Both the developer and the owner, Silo Cinema Inc., were represented by James Dario and Fred Rufrano of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates, Inc.

    "The property at 500 West 23rd Street presented an incredible opportunity for Leviev Boymelgreen in one of New York City's most dynamic neighborhoods," Mr. Dario said. "With over 100,000 s/f of development potential and proximity to the historic High Line, soon to be converted into an elevated city park, this corner location offered a prime opportunity for residential and retail use."

    Anybody know the real story here? Or is this just internet rumoring?

    I go jogging past here quite often, and while construction has slowed, there has been progress made on the side walls and rear-balcony's recently. The glass curtain wall has not been installed, which may be were the suspiscion arises from, but nothing leads me to believe that the building is in trouble, just more mindless Curbed rantings
