Bjarke Ingels’ two twisting towers top out in Chelsea

March 8th, 2019

Bjarke Ingels’ twisting towers at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea officially topped out this week, with the 36-story West tower reaching 400 feet shortly after the 26-story East tower hit its 300-foot height. The High Line-adjacent XI, located right across the street from Thomas Heatherwick’s bubbled condos at 515 West 18th Street, will offer 236 luxury condos, the first Six Senses Hotel location in the United States, commercial space, and a new public promenade that will extend from the park. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the XI’s slanted shape gives the illusion the two buildings are being pulled apart, allowing for all residents to have views of both the city and the Hudson River.

Both Towers of The XI Top Out, Condos in West Chelsea Skyline Standout from $2.575M

March 8th, 2019

Starchitect Bjarke Ingels has described the High Line as an “ambition enhancer” for architects. Judging by the buildings that have gone up or are under construction, the likes of Frank Gehry, Jeanne Gang, Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Thomas Heatherwick, and Jean Nouvel would agree with that.However, the most distinct and recognizable addition to the West Chelsea skyline is The XI, a two-building development designed by Ingels and developed by HFZ Capital Group. The east tower, known as No. X, just topped out at 300 feet and 26 stories high. Its 87 condos with interiors by Gilles et Boissier will start on the 11th floor above a 137-room Six Senses Hotel, the first in the United States.

March 8th, 2019

The XI, BIG’s latest project in West Chelsea, has just topped off construction. Two twisting structures react to one another as they move upward, opening up expansive views in the 236 luxury residences. The floor Ingels is looking out from has been enclosed in glass ahead of a party for the upcoming Six Senses hotel, the luxury brand’s first U.S. location, which will occupy several floors of the building. “All of the units have either views of the High Line or of the river,” Ingels says. “I would say two thirds of them have both.”
