It was all the way back in November 2015 that 6sqft got a first look at Bjarke Ingels‘ pair of asymmetric, twisting towers along the High Line at 76 Eleventh Avenue. At the beginning of this year, the design changed to a simpler silhouette with more space in between the 28- and 38-story buildings, and now NY Yimby has revealed yet another group of renderings that reveal even more revisions.

The fresh images reveal the glass crowns at the 300- and 400-foot tops, the retail podium and plaza fronting the High Line, and two amenity-filled podium bridges that will connect the towers (an idea perhaps borrowed from SHoP’s American Cooper Buildings).

In total, there will be 85,000 square feet of retail space. The rest of the 800,000 square feet will be occupied by 130 hotel rooms and 260 condos.

The aforementioned sky bridge at the American Copper Buildings will be the first of its kind in the city, and though Bjarke’s pair are much closer to the ground they do employ a similar amenity concept.

Developer HFZ Capital bought the block-long Meatpacking District site for $870 million in April of 2014. As CityRealty.com reports, groundwork has already begun, but “excavation and foundation work will likely take several months to a year due to the site being located on Hudson River landfill. Completion is currently set for 2018.
