76 11th Avenue or The Eleventh is a mixed-use project by HFZ Capital Group. The project comprises two towers, 25 and 34 stories respectively with a total of 240 condominium units. The project’s hotel component will have 137 rooms operated by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, a Bangkok-based hotel operator.
The project is located in West Chelsea between the High Line and the Hudson River. It is spanning a full block from 17th Street to 18th Street and 10th Avenue to 11th Avenue. It is located right next to the IAC Building designed by Frank Gehry. Jean Nouvel’s 100 Eleventh Avenue is also located in the immediate neighborhood.
The West tower of 34 stories has a height of 122m (402 ft) and the East tower of 25 stories is 92m tall (302 ft). The West Tower will be entirely dedicated to residences and residential amenities. The east tower will be a combination of hotel and residential units. The hotel will be located adjacent to the High Line within the lower half of the East Tower and the residences will occupy the upper floors.
The High Line in New York. Who would have thought that an elevated park would end up having such a powerful effect on the city? Riverfront, oceanfront, views of a park, views of Petronas Towers or adjacent to the New York High Line. I guess we can conclude that the location matters. More importantly, we now know that the right location can be created.
The project is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).
