NEW YORK | 500 W.21st St. | 80ft | 8 fl | Com

This architecturally interesting new residential development along the High Line Park has begun construction.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The High Line’s Next Neighbor

Quote:
Published: June 27, 2013

After sitting on a site near the High Line for years, Sherwood Equities last month broke ground on a residential condominium at 500 West 21st Street, a project that will occupy the entire block from 20th to 21st Street.

Sherwood bought the site in 2010 for $23.5 million, half what the previous owners — the hotelier André Balazs and the investor Charles Blaichman — had paid in 2008. Mr. Balazs and Mr. Blaichman had planned to build a hotel there, but the project stalled during the recession.

Sherwood likes to take its time with developments, and this project was no exception. “We don’t fast-track anything,” said Jeffrey Katz, the chief executive. “Two years ago it was still a pretty abysmal market, and it was confirmed as a juggernaut market less than a year ago.”

The design for the condo is being handled by Kohn Pedersen Fox, which has worked on the Hudson Yards master plan and the renovation of the Museum of Modern Art. The building will have a more rhythmic spacing of windows and columns than many of the buildings that have sprung up near the High Line, including the eye-catching designs by architects like Jean Nouvel. Large casement windows separated by strips of limestone cladding will provide a more classical look.

So that was actually a render, and not a photo?? Wow!

It looks very elegant, like the Bauhaus style from the 1920s.

i usually dont care for mid-rise luxury buildings, but i actually really like this one. the only thing i dont like about it and most others is that they always either have no street life, or the retail space is so expensive only big chain stores can lease them..

Who wants to live in a building with a constant flow of peering tourists five feet from your balcony?

Good one.
Will this building have any direct access to the High Line?

apart from that, I really like the classic design of this building. Beautyful windows.
