76 11th Avenue, also knows as The Eleventh, has finally started to show itself. Construction began in the Fall of 2016, and YIMBY has been following its progress closely. Running the length of 11th Avenue between 17th and 18th Street, the site is one of the largest parcels of land to be developed since the recent surge of construction started along the High Line, and the latest photos from BIG and Tectonic show that the transformative project is finally beginning its climb into the West Chelsea skyline.
