The Eleventh, a pair of slanted towers designed by Bjarke Ingels‘, officially went vertical in West Chelsea this week. Developed by HFZ Capital, the two-building complex at 76 Eleventh Avenue sits near the High Line between West 18th and 17th Streets. A space between the buildings at their base gives the illusion that the buildings are being pulled apart, and its ruled corners highlight the towers’ movement. The project is expected to be completed sometime in 2019.

The first American location for Six Sense Hotel and spa will open in the Eleventh’s 25-story east tower, occupying the third through tenth floors. Two hundred and forty condominiums will sit on top. The west tower, the taller of the two at 34 stories, will feature residential units only. Amenity-filled podium bridges will connect the buildings.

The building’s windowed facade is said to be inspired by the Meatpacking District’s iconic warehouses. The towers’ twisting silhouettes will allow for incredible, 360-degree skyline and waterfront views.
