Developments keep springing up along the High Line like spores of fungus, but the luxury condo building at 500 West 21st Street is one of the speediest of the neighborhood's many projects currently under construction. The building—which is being developed by Sherwood Equities and was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox—only just broke ground in June of 2013 and now a little over a year later, it is nearing completion. YIMBY checked in this week and found that most of the exterior materials are already in place, including the detailing on the limestone tiles and casement windows. It is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The building's 32 apartments hit the market back in February, all of which are currently in contract.
