2010 – 100 11th Avenue, New York

Architect: Jean Nouvel



Containing 72 residences, 100 11th stands on the north corner of its intersection, facing Frank Gehry’s headquarters for the IAC/InterActive Corporation across the street and the Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex across the avenue, in the heart of a neighborhood considered one of the world’s foremost contemporary arts districts. The homes within 100 11th range in size from 890 square feet to 4,675 square feet, and include one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments, and five unique penthouses. The building’s top floor comprises a single grand residence with a full-roof private terrace featuring what Nouvel has dubbed “outdoor rooms.” Prices for the properties ranged from $1.6 million to $22 million.

Nouvel describes 100 11th as “a vision machine,” with every angle and structural detail designed to create visual excitement. Approximately 1,650 different windowpanes comprise the most highly engineered and complex curtain wall ever constructed in New York City.
