Signs of progress are visible at the latest condo adjacent to the High Line. Located on the site of the former Getty gas station, the 11-story condo tower by Victor Homes and Michael Shvo has started to rise above ground. The first few concrete floor slabs have been poured but concealed behind protective construction fencing.
Peter Marino, an architect often known for his fashionable interiors for luxury brands, is responsible for the design of the low-rise tower. According to previously published renderings, the tower will feature a facade of dark metal and glass at varied widths throughout. An art gallery is slated for the ground floor, a typical tenant for retail space in the neighborhood.
Architect: Peter Marino; Developer: Victor Homes and Michael Shvo ; Program: Residential, Retail; Location: High LIne, Chelsea, New York, NY; Completion: 2017.
