HFZ Capital Group is prepping its High Line site for the soon-to-rise Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)-designed condo and hotel project, new construction site photos by Field Condition have revealed. There’s now some branding materials up on the construction fence of the site at 76 Eleventh Avenue, and cranes are busy at work prepping the block-long area for the 300 and 400-foot towers set to be built there.

We’ve known about HFZ’s High Line project for a little over two years now, and the development firm announced in the summer of 2015 that it had chosen BIG to design a project. A first set of renderings came online in November 2015, but ended up being a preliminary design. The second set, released early last year are closer to the final, skybridge-fitted designs revealed in August last year.

In October last year, HFZ revealed that the project would be called The Eleventh, and announced that a Six Senses hotel would be a part of the two-building development. Most of the development’s 240 condos will be located in the west tower, and some will be located above the hotel in the east tower.

Construction is supposed to wrap sometime next year, but based on the current state of the site, and the fact that work first got underway in September last year, it seems like that timeframe may be pushed back. Head on over to Field Condition to get a better view of the construction site.
