Façade Work Continues on BIG’s One High Line at 500 West 18th Street in Chelsea, Manhattan
Façade installation continues on One High Line, a two-tower mixed-use complex at 500 West 18th Street in Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Witkoff Group and Access Industries, the 900,000-square-foot project consists of 36- and 26-story towers rising from a shared podium and will yield 236 condominium units, a hotel component, ground-floor retail space, and a public plaza. 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 once-stalled development. Suffolk Construction is the new general contractor, Enzo Enea is the landscape architect, and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the project, which is alternately addressed as 76 Eleventh Avenue and stands adjacent to the High Line on a plot bound by West 18th Street to the north, West 17th Street to the south, Tenth Avenue to the east, and West Street to the west.
