New renderings have appeared via YIMBY for 76 Eleventh Avenue, the Bjarke Ingels-designed High Line-adjacent towers first revealed this past November. The planned project, developed by HFZ Capital with the goal of creating a “self contained kind of city,” was expected to include a hotel, retail space, and around 300 luxury condos with prices to start at just below $4 million. The most noticeable changes from the earlier renderings, which showed the towers fitting together at an angle, show more space between the buildings, which now appear as more of a pair than two complementary parts of a “jigsaw-like” whole.

At 28 and 38 floors high–402 feet above street level–the towers will be the surrounding area’s most prominent, soaring above current neighborhood anchors like the Standard Hotel several blocks to the south.

Occupants for the towers’ lower floors is still in discussion. As 6sqft reported last month, the focus was shifted to retail and office space given the high vacancy rate and rental prices for both in the area. Materials that accompanied the latest renderings still include hotel space in addition to 85,000 square feet of retail space and 100 parking spots. 260 condominiums are planned for the upper floors.

HFZ bought the block-long site for $870 million in April of 2014. The towers will rise 402 feet and 302 feet at a total of 800,000 square feet. Completion is currently set for 2018. Be the first to see listings for 76 11th Avenue at CityRealty.
