Construction Update: 500 West 21st Street
Sherwood’s development at 500 West 21st Street has progressed the fastest of any project along the High Line, springing from bare ground to near-completion in the span of only 13 months. Almost all of the building’s cladding has now been installed, and the end result is another classically-inspired addition to the High Line.
Kohn Pedersen Fox is the project’s architect, and while the structure is a definite departure from the firm’s typically sleek and glassy aesthetic, the design is nevertheless attractive. Detailing on the limestone is especially appealing, and a blank wall facing the High Line is covered in variegated tiles.
Casement windows have also appeared in recent weeks, highlighting another trend that has recently taken the High Line by storm, and balconies have also become apparent, though they are tactfully integrated into the structure’s overall form.
500 West 21st Street has 32 units in total, with condominiums priced up to $16 million. Completion is expected later this year.
