Walking along the High Line, passing above West 17th Street heading north, one of the newest projects to rise in Chelsea and the Meatpacking District is becoming increasingly prominent. The XI, aka The Eleventh, a set of twisting residential units designed by Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group, has progressed quickly, with the first of two towers already close to topping out. Now, glass installation has also commenced.
New information has been revealed for Related Companies’ 507 West 27th Street, a single-story commercial building rising under the High Line in Chelsea. Thanks to a YIMBY reader, we were provided with an image of a rendering at the site, revealing it has been dubbed “High Line Nine,” for the nine gallery spaces that will be created within.
Yet another new development by Related Companies is nearing completion. Construction is underway at 507 West 27th Street, a snug single-story structure in Chelsea that is literally built under the High Line Park. While it’s not as glitzy or city-altering as what Related is building nearby, the 14-foot tall commercial structure is of interest because it showcases the possibility for small-scale development filling in underutilized plots of land.
Anbau Enterprises is officially moving forward on 41 West 23rd Street, in Chelsea, over three years after the site’s re-design passed the Landmark Preservation Commission. Located half a block away from the Flatiron Building and less than two avenues away from four different subway stations on 23rd Street, the lot has been expected to yield something interesting for about a decade, which means actual progress is very welcome.
As the largest planned development in the United States inches closer to completion, The Shed at Hudson Yards has announced the first group of commissions to be on display during the 2019 inaugural season. The Shed will be New York City’s first and only arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting new work across the performing arts, visual arts, and pop culture areas. The mixed-use space is expected to be open to the public sometime in the spring of 2019.
