Notes:
Neil Denari's firm is known as NMDA (Neil M. Denari Architects), based in Los Angeles. Marc I. Rosenbaum was a collaborating architect. HL23 is a 14 floor luxury condominium tower that responds to a challenging site directly adjacent to the High Line at 23rd street in New York's West Chelsea Arts district. Partially impacted by a spur from the elevated (former) tracks that make up the High Line superstructure, the site is 40' x 99' at the ground floor. Denari calls this "small footprint vertical urbanism." There are glass curtain walls facing north and south and a 3D stainless steel panel facade on the east facing the High Line (which has been developed as a 1 mile linear pedestrian park).
