Glass Sky-Bridge Connecting Towers Coming to the Highline

                                                                          

A new tower will be joining the slew of uniquely designed buildings that line the southern end of the famous highline park. The Development team led by HFZ, who have 800,000 sqft of air rights and plans with starchitect Bjarke Ingels, will be bringing new luxury condos to Chelsea.

Ingels, who also designed the oddly shaped Tetrahedron, is continuing his signature of unusual shapes with the two towers at 76 Eleventh Avenue. One of the towers will stand 35 stories tall and the other 25, both topped with glass and connected by two glass bridges relatively close to the ground.

The taller of the two buildings will reach over 400 feet, with a total of 302 condominiums between the two towers. At the ground level, below the highline, will be retail space. The largest penthouse will be 7,000 sqft and will include a wrap around terrace and a swimming pool that will overlook the gorgeous park below. The towers will offer one to three bedroom units, averaging 2,000 sqft.

Construction is planned to be completed by 2018.
