NEW YORK | 501 W. 17th St. | 402ft | 38 fl | 302ft | 28 fl | Pro

Is This What Bjarke Ingels's High Line Project Will Look Like?



Quote:
Bjarke Ingels Group has released a preliminary design for its massive, geometric $870 million project along the High Line at 17th Street. According to New York YIMBY, who first spotted the renders, the buildings will stand 38 and 28 stories tall and will have approximately 300 apartments.

The project is located at 76 Eleventh Avenue with an alternate address of 501 West 17th Street. It's one of the largest undeveloped plots along the High Line, and the project will span 800,000 square feet when it is complete. Based off of the preliminary design, the two towers will measure 402 feet and 302 feet, and will sit atop a base that will be comprised of retail space and a hotel.

[...]

HFZ Capital purchased the site for an astronomical $870 last summer, making it the second most expensive acquisition only to Extell's Riverside Center site. Once complete, the project will mostly feature two and three bedroom apartments with prices starting just under $4 million. The project is yet another addition to the large slate of luxury buildings either under development or close to finish along the High Line.

The Bjarke Ingels project has a tentative completion date sometime in 2018.

. I'm starting to wonder if he actually can. The Pyramid is clearly the exception, can't say I'm impressed with anything else he's done.
This one looks like the work of an up and coming architect trying too hard to come up with something "different".
For a better version of what he's trying to achieve, he should check what studio Gang is doing just a few blocks south

I think Bjarke Ingels is very clever, but I don't think he can do high end residential or office buildings that well as it's not easy to incorporate his ideas of public space into those. His expo pavillions, parks, and plazas are where he really shines.

Very busy design. I don't "get" this building. Why does it has it's shape and facade? It seems to me, that too many ideas went in to this project.

I like it. It's obviously not as striking as the Pyramid, and I wouldn't want a city full of such buildings, but I'm starting to think an occasional oddball like this would be nice for any city. And it's clearly lightyears away from his abysmal attempts at designing tall towers.

The pyramid ended up ugly enough, now NY has to get its inverse?
