Exterior work has resumed on One High Line, a pair of 26- and 36-story mixed-use towers at 76 Eleventh Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Witkoff Group, the 900,000-square-foot complex will yield 236 condominium units, 137 hotel rooms, 85,000 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza. Steve Witkoff purchased the property, formerly known as The XI, in a foreclosure sale for $900 million and partnered with Access Industries and Monroe Capital to complete the stalled project. Gilles & Boissier and Gabellini Sheppard Associates are the interior designers and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the High Line-adjacent property, which is bound by Tenth Avenue to the east, West Street to the west, West 17th Street to the south, and West 18th Street to the north.
Since our last update in early April, the warm-colored Travertine marble panels have reached the top of the taller 36-story edifice facing West Street and the scaffolding rig has been removed from the western side of the exterior.
The exterior of the shorter 26-story sibling has also made considerable progress.
The mechanical bulkheads on both towers still await to be enclosed in an open-air metal framework.
The ground-floor retail space is tucked within the steel columns and beams of the High Line. To the east is a large flat concrete surface that will become the public plaza.
The central space between the structures that will serve as a motor courtyard is one of the last sections yet to receive its cladding. Crews are also working on enclosing the ground floor of the eastern tower.
We can expect curtain wall installation to continue throughout the rest of the year and into 2023. A model unit is already built out, and the rest of the interiors should take shape over the next year. Residential amenities include a golf simulator, a lap pool, and a spa with steam and sauna rooms.
One High Line will be finished in the winter of 2024, as noted on the construction board.
