76 Eleventh Ave., a U.S. Immigration Fund project, is making progress towards completion with new details and renderings on the twisting towers designed by Bjarke Ingeles Group.     MARCH 6, 2018 |  MICHELLE COHEN [caption id="attachment_25478" align="aligncenter" width="724"]us-immigraion-fund-76-eleventh-rendering Image: DBOX[/caption] Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has released new design details on its first New York condominium and hotel project at 76 Eleventh Avenue near the High Line in West Chelsea (h/t Designboom). Known as “The Eleventh,” the project, first presented in 2016, is comprised of a pair of twisting asymmetrical bronze and travertine towers joined by a skybridge. The building’s windowed facade is said to be inspired by the Meatpacking District’s iconic warehouses.

The west tower–the taller of the two at 34 stories–will feature 149 residential units. The connecting podium bridges will hold amenities.

The twisting towers of 76 11th Avenue, a U.S. Immigration Fund project, are advancing in construction progress. The project is adjacent to the High Line in West Chelsea and will consist of luxury residential units as well as a Six Senses Hotel and Spa. Construction is scheduled for completion in 2019.

Construction is moving right along at 76 Eleventh Avenue, home to one of starchitect Bjarke Ingels’s many New York City projects. Developed by HFZ Capital Group and to be known as The Eleventh, the development will consists of two twisting towers atop an 85 foot podium adjacent to the High Line.

Field Condition spotted progress at the construction site, with at least one of the buildings rising up from the podium. The west tower is set to rise 400 feet and will consist of residential units and amenities. The east tower will top out at 300 feet, holding residential units on the upper floors and a 137-key Six Senses hotel and spa on the lower floors. The towers, which will be the tallest in West Chelsea, will hold a total of 240 luxury condos between them.

The stone and metal buildings keep with Ingels’s style; a press release stated that he "draws inspiration from New York City’s classic Modernist structures and cultural institutions, while skewing traditional skyscraper geometry with rotating forms that maximize views from both towers."

HFZ also announced that the firm is teaming up with Friends of the High Line to collaborate on creating an open-air pedestrian promenade for the development that will run adjacent to the elevated linear park. The whole shebang is expected to open in 2019.

[caption id="attachment_24725" align="aligncenter" width="592"] 76 Eleventh Avenue[/caption] 76 11th Avenue, also known as The Eleventh, has finally started to show itself. Construction began in the Fall of 2016, and YIMBY has been following its progress closely. Running the length of 11th Avenue between 17th and 18th Street, the site is one of the largest parcels of land to be developed since the recent surge of construction started along the High Line, and the latest photos from BIG and Tectonic show that the transformative project is finally beginning its climb into the West Chelsea skyline. [caption id="attachment_24768" align="aligncenter" width="534"] This weekend, photo by Bjarke Ingels Group[/caption] Purchased in April of 2015 by HFZ Capital for $870 million, the site will be the home of two mixed-use towers. The first is slated to rise 25 stories and 302 feet, and will be operated by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, with 137 guest rooms.  This will be the Bangkok-based hotel chain’s first location in the United States. The second tower will rise to 35 floors and 402 feet, and is set to become a 240-unit residential tower. Both buildings will share a four-story base, which will offer up 181,893 square feet of commercial space. [caption id="attachment_24769" align="aligncenter" width="602"] One week ago, photo by Tectonic[/caption] The concrete base of the project is now visible, which will presumably hold the shared lobby and commercial space which the two towers will rise out of. Comparing the photos, it appears work is moving up at the pace of about a floor per week. The design should be a fitting addition to the area, and neighbors include the Frank Gehry-designed IAC Headquarters, and Jean Nouvel’s 100 11th Avenue. [caption id="attachment_24770" align="aligncenter" width="569"] One week ago, photo by Tectonic[/caption] Funding for the project will come in the form of a $1.23 billion senior loan, a $258 million EB-5 mezzanine loan, and $225 million in developer equity. In addition to the purchase of the site itself, HFZ purchased 800,000 square feet of air rights. Omnibuild is overseeing the project’s construction which will offer 360 degree views of the Hudson River and Manhattan alike. Completion is expected to be sometime in 2019.

Bjarke Ingels' pair of torquing towers has erupted out of the ground and are beginning to rise above their West Chelsea neighborhood. Named The Eleventh, the project is being spearheaded by Ziel Feldman's HFZ Capital Group.

The two-building complex is sited between the High Line and Chelsea Waterside Park at 76 Eleventh Avenue between West 18th and 17th streets. The towers will share a platform on a full city block site. At the base, a separation between the buildings will create the illusion that the buildings are being pulled apart — maximizing city skyline and Hudson River views. Ruled corners create additional separation and emphasize the movement of the towers, more noticeable as they rise and reorient. Renderings also show punched window facades said to be inspired by the Meatpacking District’s historic warehouses.

The Eleventh’s east tower will be home to the first American location for Six Senses Hotel and spa. It will occupy the third through tenth floors and have condos on top. The taller, 34-story west tower will be solely residential. Unique podium bridges will allow for a through-block connection between buildings. Completion is anticipated for 2019.
