Kanye West is in luck. As of just a few days ago, a new unit popped up in the iconic Neil Denari-designed HL23 condominium he once so desperately coveted; asking $3.95 million. It’s no wonder the starchitect’s first free-standing building is such a draw. Not only did the futuristic design inspire former New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff to write car metaphors, but it’s also sustainably built. Making the city a better place and looking good while doing it? What’s not to love?

Inside the 1,890-square-foot, fourth-floor loft, you’ll be immediately struck by the massive diagonal windows and walls, complements of the tower’s geometrically ambitious façade. These floor-to-ceiling windows span the entire wall, allowing plenty of sunlight to filter in and offering panoramic views of the city and the High Line below.

The two-bedroom apartment has direct elevator access opening up to a living/dining area. Adjacent to the space is a chef’s kitchen outfitted with Poliform cabinetry, corian countertops, a wine fridge, and a cappuccino machine. The kitchen overlooks a den/media room with another striking wall of windows.

The master bedroom features yet another window wall and a Paonazzo marble en suite with a wet room, Boffi swim tub, and heated floors. More floor-to-ceiling windows line the bathroom, but before you get nervous about giving passersby a show, note that the windows feature bottom-up shades to protect your privacy. In fact, all the windows of the entire unit come fully equipped with motorized privacy shades.

HL23 has even more going for it than its distinctive façade. The building also boasts a LEED-Certified Gold Rating due to its use of green power and eco-efficient appliances and water fixtures. Additionally, the air quality in the building is 30% better than the current building code requirement. Now that’s what we call a breath of fresh air.
