Bloomberg architecture critic James Russel sizes up Neil Denari's HL23, the crazy/sexy/cool 13-story condo building coming to the High Line: "Denari compares his design to a plant reaching for a shaft of sunlight from out of a crack in the sidewalk. The 13-story building rises out of a skinny, seemingly unbuildable 25-foot- wide slot of land. It unfurls in faceted planes of glass and metal, held in place by diagonal braces that look like sinews. The diminutive tower seems to wave gently, bending just a bit east over the old elevated railroad, while the south-facing side tilts back at the top." [Bloomberg; previously]
