YIMBY’s Turkey Week update of stalled projects continues with The XI, a twisting pair of 26- and 36-story residential structures at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea. Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by HFZ Capital Group, façade installation work appears to be on hold for the moment at the site, which is located on the western side of the High Line. Among the tallest buildings to rise along the Hudson River, the 908,250-square-foot two-tower design will yield 236 condominiums and a 137-room Six Senses Hotel Resort Spa, the brand’s first location in the United States. YIMBY last reported that Omnibuild is in charge of the construction and Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
YIMBY’s Turkey Week update of stalled projects turns next to 125 Greenwich Street, a 912-foot-tall residential skyscraper that has been sitting quiet in the Financial District for most of 2020. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, the 88-story structure will yield 273 residential units with interior design by March & White and sales and marketing handled by Douglas Elliman. Plaza Construction is the general contractor for the project.
YIMBY’s Turkey Week tour of stalled projects continues with Seaport Residences, a 60-story residential skyscraper formerly known as One Seaport at 161 Maiden Lane in the Financial District. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC with Ray Builders serving as the contractor, work has been on hold for the 670-foot-tall tower, which as planned would bring 200,000 square feet of residential space to the South Street Seaport District. Groves & Co is the interior designer for the 80 units, which are being managed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
Exterior work is still wrapping up on Madison House, NoMad’s tallest residential skyscraper at 126 Madison Avenue. Alternately addressed as 15 East 30th Street, the 805-foot-tall, 62-story tower is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Fosun Group and JD Carlisle. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing of its 199 condominiums. The project also includes 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
Construction is still finishing up on ABI Chelsea, a 10-story residential building at 455 West 19th Street in Chelsea. Not much has changed since our last visit in late January, with construction entirely complete with the exception of the ground floor. The project, which is located between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, is designed by Lebanon-based Raed Abillama Architects with Paik Architecture as the architect of record. Developer Al Amir Holdings is expecting a projected sellout of $77.5 million. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing for the residences, which are slated to range from $15 to $25 million.
