While the length of the High Line has seen a surge of construction since the elevated park initially opened, there are still a few major sites left that remain ripe for new development. Perhaps the largest such parcel is at 76 11th Avenue, between 17th and 18th Streets, which was acquired by HFZ Capital for $870 million back in April. Now, YIMBY can reveal the site’s preliminary plans, created by Bjarke Ingels Group.
Renderings for the futuristic Solar Carve at 40-56 Tenth Avenue first surfaced three years ago, long before the city shot down a variance that would’ve allowed the developer to build bigger on a rather challenging site in Meatpacking.

RKF and Tavros Capital Partners are marketing the 38,000-square-foot retail space on the prime corner of 14th Street, Ninth Avenue and Hudson Street, and they’ve sent along renderings of what the property could look like for a new commercial tenant.
Last September, YIMBY posted the first renderings for a new CetraRuddy-designed hotel coming to 414 West 15th Street, in the Meatpacking District. And now, we have a few more updated images of the project, which show some changes to the rooftop, and also reveal the development’s street-level appearance.
Earlier today, a permit application was submitted with the Department of Buildings to construct a 12-story office tower at 76 Eighth Avenue, on the southeastern corner of West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District or West Village….
