High Line-facing condo with ultra-modern interiors wants $9.5M

New, 6 comments

The glass-enclosed apartment is prominently located above the elevated park

The brokerbabble for this hyper-artistic two-bedroom at HL 23 promises that residents will be “floating directly above their very own, world-class urban oasis.” That’s a lot of hyperbole just to say you have High Line views, but what do you expect from one of the forebears of the current condo boom around the elevated park?

And it’s true that the see-through abode offers a singular living experience, with exteriors by Kanye West’s favorite architect, Neil Denari, and interiors by Thomas Juul-Hanson. The West Chelsea condo just hit the market for $9.5M.

The full-floor, open-plan, column-free interior offers 2,600 square feet of (mostly) uninterrupted living space, with a huge foyer, an expansive living/dining area, an eat-in cook’s kitchen, two bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and so many windows your domestic life is basically public performance art.

The listing promises “quiet, sensual serenity,” with details like 11-foot-ceilings, wide-plank oak floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a multi-zoned heating and cooling system, Linnaea Tillett-designed light fixtures, and sloping floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

As for the building’s (less serene) shared perks: besides its premier location, the place boasts a high-concept lobby with custom neon work, a full-time doorman and super, various types of storage, and a fitness center with a TechnoGym, presumably designed to help you cope with the stress of being on permanent display.
