YIMBY recently took photographs of the ongoing installation at The XI of the warm-colored travertine façade. The project consists of a twisting pair of 36- and 26-story residential structures located at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea. Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by HFZ Capital Group, the massive 908,250-square-foot complex stands along the Hudson River waterfront and sits on the western side of the High Line. The mixed-use property will yield 236 condominiums and a 137-room Six Senses Hotel Resort Spa, which will be the first location in the United States. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction and Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
Work appears to have stalled on 611 West 56th Street, aka 823 Eleventh Avenue, a 450-foot-tall condominium building in Hell’s Kitchen. Designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza with SLCE as the architect of record and developed by Sumaida + Khurana and LENY, the 37-story tower will yield 80 units designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates.
Gabellini Sheppard Associates has proposed an extensive redesign of existing lighting fixtures in an effort to improve the illumination of distinguished artworks throughout Rockefeller Center. The scope of work covers nearly every building and their respective façades between West 48th Street and West 51st Street, spanning Sixth Avenue, Rockefeller Plaza, and Fifth Avenue.
The next phase of renovations at Manhattan’s historic Rockefeller Plaza will be reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in a public hearing on Tuesday, June 30. Tishman Speyer, current owner of the complex, has proposed a multitude of alterations as part of a masterplan conceived by Gabellini Sheppard Associates. This newly revealed component is specifically focused on the east lobby and mezzanine at 45 Rockefeller Plaza, also known as the International Building and 630 Fifth Avenue.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now reviewing the latest phase of proposals to update and enliven Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown, Manhattan. The proposals specify modifications to ground-floor retail area at 50 Rockefeller Plaza between West 50th and West 51st Streets.
