Bjarke Ingels The XI.JPG

The latest addition of a Starchitect to the Manhattan skyline is Bjarke Ingels’ The XI on the West Side between the Hudson River and the The High Line. This mega project takes up the entire block between 17th and 18th Streets, and is eye catching with its double, twisting tower design. The XI recently launched sales, and we got an inside look at the Sales Gallery which is curated as an Art Gallery as art is core to the building and its location. 

Developed by HFZ Capital, The XI is comprised of 2 towers and will also include a hotel component by Six Senses Resort and Spa, their first U.S. location. The brand is known world-wide as a leader in the health and wellness space. The twisting design of the towers allows views and light to be maximized in all residences. In addition to the 2 towers, there will be another structure that will house the Six Senses Spa and Club and will be connected to the towers with a glass skybridge.
