#23 of ny.curbed.com’s 50 starchitect-led projects that will transform NYC’s skyline

ny.curbed.com/ Oct. 5, 2016

HFZ Capital and Bjarke Ingels Group are set to transform the area around the southern end of the High Line with the duo’s collaboration at 76 Eleventh Avenue, but before that can happen, they need to decide on a final design. Both buildings, due to rise 38 and 28 stories, will be topped by glass crowns; new renderings show that they’ll be connected by glass skybridges, which will sit relatively low to the ground. The new renderings also offer a peek at the development’s retail component, which will basically sit below the High Line. Assuming everything goes according to plan, the development will be completed by 2018; construction work is already happening at the site.
