A brick house on the High Line
REAL ESTATE • FOUND Development
Drive up the West Side Highway, and the premium architecture on display is intense: here’s Frank Gehry and his IAC Building, Jean Nouvel’s 100 Eleventh, and Annabelle Selldorf’s 200 Eleventh, a building so enhanced that residents can park their cars in their apartments. Each of those buildings is a product of the aughts, when the High Line was just opening to the public, and starchitecture reigned.
Come now to the present day where Selldorf’s latest, understated act in the High Line District, Park House at 500 West 22nd Street, suggests something about our current moment. The facade of the building is brick, blending into its 10th Avenue block instead of standing out like the glassy facades of yore. Of the building’s 10 condo units, three are still on the market, including a $2.5M one bedroom, a $5.9M three-bedroom, and Penthouse A, asking $9.985M. What if starchitecture was just… architecture?
