Thanks to New York YIMBY, we now have a sneak peak at the newly-released renderings of Bjarke Ingles Group‘s massive $870 million residential project adjacent to the High Line at 17th Street. The preliminary renderings show two asymmetrical towers splitting from the structure’s first floors, creating the illusion of two separate buildings. The design calls for approximately 300 sure-to-be swanky apartments as well as retail space and a hotel.
According to the renderings, the 800,000-square-foot project will consist of 300 two- and three-bedroom apartments spread out between two 28-and 38-story towers. The “active base” of the building will house 50,000 square feet of retail space and a 150,000- square-foot hotel.
Located along the popular High Line park between 17th and 18th streets, the highly-coveted land for the project was acquired by HFZ Capital earlier this year in what was one of the most expensive property sales in NYC history. Shortly afterwards, BIG was chosen to design the new condo development.
The project is tentatively slated to be completed some time in 2018.
