NEW YORK | Chelsea Skybox - 188 11th Ave. | 20 fl | Demo

A 20 story residential tower is being developed at the High Line. Given the location, this could be architecturally significant.

20-story Chelsea Skybox proposed for High Line at 188 11th Avenue

Quote:
Gird your loins for another High Line project at 188 11th Avenue.

The 20-story, 33-unit “Chelsea Skybox” will rise, all heroic-like, on the corner of 11th Avenue and West 23rd Street. Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect of record for the mixed-use project, according to a plan exam application filed November 18th.

Israeli investor Jonathan Leitersdorf bought the prime development site from hotelier Richard Born in 2011, the New York Post reported. The closing was on a long-term ground lease covering two buildings. Leitersdorf and partner John Jacobson envisioned the new development as an event space along with high-end loft rentals, according to the Post.

So what can we expect from the 74,050-square-foot project across from Chelsea Piers? Roughly 15,000 square feet of retail space spread across the first, third and fourth floors. Apartments start on the second floor, with full-floor units from the seventh through 20th floors. The building will be topped with a recreation roof deck, complete with a swimming pool.

A demolition permit was filed May 17th for an existing two-story building on the site.

Sounds interesting. Will it be taller than the residential building next to it?

Most likely, look at how that building is being held up by those beams. It'll have to come down some day...

Not necessarily. There are a couple buildings downtown where they've had to brace neighboring buildings that remain post construction.

The height will also be very significant at this location. 20 floors?? Hope this will be forward thinking architecturally.
