HL23 Project
With a striking silhouette of patterned, brushed steel panels and glass, which is unmistakable from the High Line, the fourteen-storey building elegantly integrates itself into the public space. The reverse tapering design allowed the architect to realize larger spaces on particular floors, making them close to 40% wider than the street-level footprint, while the low-iron glass gives its façade a more open and fluid appearance. Sustainably built, HL23 expects to receive Gold LEED Certification.
