Bjarke Ingels’s High Line-adjacent condos are making progress: a little over a week after sales launched, developer HFZ Capital Group has unveiled a new website for the hotel and condo project, and released the first set of renderings for the swanky suite of amenities at the development.
On top of that list is the double height skybridge or “Bridge Lounge,” as it is officially known, that connects the 36 and 26-story towers that make up the XI. This lounge features 21-foot-tall ceilings, a retractable movie screen, a private wine tasting room, a bar, and a library.
Other new renderings show of the condo’s massive fitness center where most of the equipment will face floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on to the Hudson River. At the center of the 18,000-square-foot fitness center is a 75-foot, glass-enclosed swimming pool with cabanas and a hot tub close by. The fitness center will also have steam, sauna and cold plunge areas, and all of them will be programmed by the Six Senses resort, which will be operating a hotel from the shorter of the two towers.
Finally, a couple of new renderings also show us the private entrances to the two buildings. The 36-story tower will have a total of 149 residences, and the 26-story building will have 87 apartments, in addition to the Six Senses hotel. The amenity package at the condo was designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates. Construction on the XI is expected to wrap at the end of 2019.
