The Peter Marino-designed, High Line-adjacent condos by comeback boy Michael Shvo were semi-revealed at a Miami event in December, and now New York YIMBY has a clearer rendering of the 12-story building. The black facade will be dominated by large windows, and a few corners will hold terraces. Overall, it's a pretty indistinctive building, and considering Marino is the "leather daddy of luxury," something edgier (maybe like this?) would have been welcomed. The High Line is becoming a walkway through starchitecture, and this kind of feels like a missed opportunity.
Plans filed with the Department of Buildings state that the development will be 41,489 square feet, and the eight condos will average a spacious 4,700 square feet. The ground floor will hold a 3,500-square-foot retail space. The building will rise right beside neighborhood vet, HL23, one of the first new condos to pop up beside the elevated park.
