These are the High Line’s hottest new buildings
April 10th, 2019
Scandinavian superstar Bjarke Ingels’ latest New York project, the XI, just topped out at 76 11th Ave. Its twin twisting towers offer 236 units and views over the High Line and Hudson River. “With its punched windows and gridded structural façade, the XI echoes the pragmatic rationality of the neighborhood’s historic warehouses, while its sculptural geometry gives it a kinship to the local arts community,” Ingels says. No two units are alike in the 36-story project (opening in 2020), but the standout is definitely the 5,663-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom penthouse, asking $28 million. Spanning a southwest corner with a 239-square-foot covered terrace, it sits above a new Six Senses New York Hotel, which emphasizes sustainability and wellness amenities.

A “BIG” Deal: The XI’s Topping Out Party
March 8th, 2019
Yesterday afternoon in Chelsea, we joined a small group to scale the side of a building in a construction hoist for a topping out party. For those not savvy with real estate lingo: a “hoist” is the elevator that operates outside of the building for construction workers to access all levels of a site from the outside before internal elevators are assembled; and a “topping out” party is a celebration for when all concrete has been poured and sealed on every level of a project. The scenario was one for something truly special—The XI, developed by HFZ Capital Group and designed by Bjarke Ingels.
