One of the lesser-known condos overlooking the High Line, the 11-story building at 515 West 29th Street, is being fitted with its quirky facade, as it prepares for a projected opening later this year, construction site photos by Field Condition have revealed.
515 High Line, as the condo is known, is being developed by the Bauhouse Group and designed by Soo Chan of SCDA Architecture—the same firm behind the more high profile, private pool-fitted Soori High Line.
What distinguishes 515 High Line from the other buildings in the area is perhaps the detail work on the facade—the wavy fins that we saw earlier in renderings—are beginning to take shape, and we get a sense of that in one of Field Condition’s photos.
The cellar and the ground floor here will be set aside for retail. The apartments (there are just 12 of them) will start on the second floor and will measure just under 3,000 square feet on average. The building topped out in January this year, and is scheduled to wrap construction by the end of this year.
The structure is incorporating and being built on top of what was once a six-story factory. The project came about after the developer purchased the site for $24.35 million in 2013, according to property records. 515 High Line is just one of many new condos in various stages of construction around the High Line right now.
