The latest Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)-designed project hit another milestone as the taller portion of the XI buildings topped out this week. Now the tallest building in the area at 400 feet, the 76thEleventh Avenue “I” building in Chelsea has swiftly ascended by 34 stories in the last 7 months. New images show the fast-moving construction, and work steadily progressing.
76thEleventh Avenue, a U.S. Immigration FundEB-5 Project, occupies a premier location on the elevated Highline park, and is the only project of its caliber with direct access to the 1.45-mile-long (2.23 km) Highline park. Alongside this milestone with the 400-foot building at full height, the skyline is shifting, and the uniquely designed “dancing” towers are already enticing potential buyers from around the world.
The XI residences provide unmatched access to the Chelsea Neighborhood and Meatpacking District compared to similar residences in the area. The XI also boasts a much more affordable price per square foot, compared to similar residences.
In addition to a more attractive cost per square foot, residents of the 76thEleventh Avenue “XI” project can enjoy direct access to a variety of neighborhood luxuries – including the Highline Park, Chelsea Market and the new Six Senses hotel,which is central to the development of the second, smaller 300-foot building.
