The Museum of the City of New York’s exhibition profiling the construction of Neil Denari’s HL23 condominium project on the High Line opened to the public earlier this evening. Called “New York Fast Forward: Neil Denari Builds on the High Line,” the exhibition will remain open at the museum (located at 1220 Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street) through September, featuring models and renderings of the development along with historic shots of the High Line.
The $22 million project rises above and cantilevers out over the High Line and will purchase 100 percent green power. The project team includes interior designers Thomas Juul-Hansen Architects and YRG Sustainability Consultants of New York, which will assist the design team in pursuit of a LEED Gold rating from USGBC. The 39,000-square-foot, 14-story tower will feature reflective roofing, a target energy consumption reduction of 15 to 25 percent below code, construction waste management, and recycled-content building materials. Occupancy is planned for late 2009.
