Glassy MoMa Inspired Tower Coming to the High Line

West 21st street and 11th Ave

The latest project slated to come to the High Line is inspired by the MoMa’s sculpture garden, allowing it to fit right in with the other unique starachetic’s structures. London Studio Seilern Architects plan to bring this 24-story glass tower to the corner of West 21st street and 11th Ave., across from Norman Foster’s 551W21.

The tower will have commercial space that will hold a gallery on the lower levels as well as a reception area and sculpture garden. Above that will be residential units.

The designers of the building focused on the site’s two iconic views–southwest facing the Hudson River and East towards the Empire State Building. Taking advantage of these views, they have designed several balconies for residence to enjoy all of New York’s beauty along with the iconic High Line.

The proposal is part of a design competition and no decisions have been made as of yet.
