High Line, Manhattan's 21st Century Park Opens




Manhattan's new 21st century park, The High Line park opened this week. The High Line is built atop the former elevated train track transforming 22 blocks into an open park.


The High Line runs through three of Manhattans most dynamic neighborhoods, Hells Kitchen, West Chelsea and the Meat Packing District.

Many new real estate projects were created along the High Line. The High Line itself is adjacent to or runs through various buildings creating interesting unique urban designs.

Several new residential projects are underway or have been completed.

High Line 23 or HL23 (shown above) is a new green building that is currently under construction in the West Chelsea art gallery district at West 23rd Street and 10th Avenue.

The structure is a 14 floor mixed use of gallery space and condominiums with amazing views of the new High Line elevated park. The condo will include nine floor-through apartments ranging in size from about 1,850 square feet to 2,600 square feet. Sales are underway. Prices range from $2,750,000 to $11,500,000 for the 3700 square foot penthouse duplex unit with a terrace.
The first phase of the pedestrian park which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, opened this week. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009.

The redevelopment of the abandoned elevated railroad structure has created a residential new construction boom on the far west side along the High Line.

The Caledonia, the 1st residential tower on the High Line Park had sold out 190 condo units in April 2007, within eight months of sales. The Caledonia also features luxury rental apartments.

    Hi Mitchell,

    Thanks for keeping us up to date with the developments down there. I like the HL23 building. It's green and it's modern. But I personally feel it looks out of place since the buildings beside it look old to me.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi,

    I've a background in landscape architecture and my fiance works in commercial real estate. I stumbled upon your post, which gave useful and interesting info for both our fields. The High Line Park is a good idea and I'm not surprised it has caused that much mixed use development in those already trendy NYC hotspots. Thanks for the post!

    From,
