If West Chelsea is home to some of Manhattan’s most architecturally-inspired new buildings, West 29th Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues stands out as one of its most eye-catching blocks. Its location at the foot of Hudson Yards and bisected by the High Line invites developers and designers to reach for the stars to woo all the creative talent and high earners that will be flooding into the neighborhood in the coming years.
As we previously reported, five new developments have opened their doors on the block and three more are on the way. We took a look at the latest three condos to debut: Five One Five, Soori High Line, and 550 West 29th Street to see how the developers and architects seized the opportunity and to check in with what’s left on the market.
