Project Description

Situated on the High Line district of West Chelsea and designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen, the two towers of 505W 19th shape a linear and elegant composition that encases the beautiful and dynamic elevated urban park.
The towers are connected to one another by a lobby stretching under the beautiful highline, integrated in the composition of the buildings.
The angled, oversized custom-designed casement windows that are the façade’s characterizing element were conceived to maximize the presence of natural light and the visibility inside the building, and are a nice example of the possibilities designer’s have in modulating the natural light reflecting on a building surface.
The two towers – full-service condominium housing only 35 residences – are nestled alongside the High Line, the urban park built on a disused section of the elevated railway that, along its route, crosses the West Side of Manhattan from the Meatpacking to the Hudson Yards.
