Topping-out this past April, Studio Gang‘s Solar Carve Tower along Chelsea’s High Line is now nearing full completion as its dazzling glass facade rises above Tenth Avenue, between West 13th and 14th Streets. Located at 40 Tenth Avenue, and sitting to the immediate north of the Standard Hotel, the 10-story building will be entirely encased in glass, and constructed with reinforced concrete. The Jeanne Gang-designed structure will span 139,000 square feet in all, and is being co-developed by Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate.

It’s been three months since we got a first look at what’s coming to 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, construction is starting to rise above street level. The latest images from Tectonic reveal that the building has reached its sixth floor, just shy of one-eighth of the eventual total floor count. At this point, no elements of the distinctive design from the renderings are visible. The 51-story condominium tower is being designed by Studio Gang, a Chicago-based firm. This will be their first residential building in New York City.
The blocks surrounding Manhattan’s High Line have seen a plethora of developments boasting unique experimental architectural designs. The creativity has been pervasive and consistent. The latest icon to top-off is 40 Tenth Avenue, an expressive office building formerly known as the “Solar Carve” tower. Aurora Capital is responsible for the Meatpacking District development.
The redevelopment of Macy’s former footprint in Downtown Brooklyn is set to add a major new skyscraper to the Borough’s skyline. Renderings for 11 Hoyt Street are out, and it’s looking to make an impression. The 51-story condominium building is designed by the architecture and urban design firm Studio Gang, led by MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang. This project will be the Chicago-based firm’s first residential building in New York City.
On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a major expansion of the American Museum of Natural History.
