505 west 19th street

The area surrounding the High Line continues to serve as the city’s hotbed of avant-garde architecture, and Thomas Juul-Hansen’s 505w19 is the latest jewel to stud West Chelsea‘s verdant necklace.

The two-building project, whose 10-story volumes straddle either side of the High Line, will join the ranks of Foster’s 551W21, Selldorf’s 520 West Chelsea, and Shigeru Ban’s Metal Shutter House as a timeless, modern addition that contextually blends into the west side’s no-nonsense streetscape.

We recently got a peek at the construction of this 35-unit condo development, which is currently getting its skin–a dark-grey saw toothed façade with exposed concrete columns and slab edges.
