Commissioned as a uniquely New York building, 200 Eleventh Avenue evolves the concept of vertical living—as shown here in an early conceptual illustration from 1909—to incorporate residential parking alongside homes.
Designed from the inside out, 200 Eleventh Avenue demonstrates unparalleled attention for the needs of modern living, with elevated craftsmanship throughout the entire building.
OVERVIEW

The project includes 16 limited-edition 2 and 3 bedroom homes ranging from 1,300 square feet to 3,500 square feet. The building’s 3-story base incorporates a rust-toned terracotta, with the additional 16-story tower dressed in stainless steel, bonding it to the heavy industrial architecture of the area.

PROJECT HURDLES
  • Little “e” Designation / OER (Office of Environmental Remediation) Approval
  • Entitlement for Parking Variance / ULURP (Uniform Land Use Review Procedure)
  • Executed 421(a) Tax benefits Program / HPD (Housing Preservation and Development)
DIFFERENTIATION

After studying the luxury landscape of both the West Chelsea market and greater Manhattan, it was clear that the market would see a spike in the delivery of residential product. Taking into consideration the possibility of market saturation, the strategic plan was committed to differentiating its product by design, use and location.

Designed from the inside out, 200 Eleventh Avenue demonstrates unparalleled attention for the needs of modern living, with elevated craftsmanship throughout the entire building.
The building represents a significant moment in architecture, with the synthesis of context, shape, dimension, craft and feeling.
Selldorf Architects found inspiration in neighboring industrial lofts, the concepts of Erwin Hauser and structural forms found in nature.
Designed in context, 200 Eleventh Avenue creates a dialogue with its industrial surroundings.
This uniquely protected setting offers a proximity to life—both cultural and natural. To counter the possibility of market saturation, the strategic plan differentiated the building by design, use and location.

The west-facing position of the site includes unobstructed, protected views of the Hudson River and Hudson River Park’s Chelsea Cove.
The building is centered in the Chelsea Arts District—New York’s hub for art galleries—near the High Line, in an epicenter of creative expression and architectural innovation.
Modern interpretation of the vertical utopia: 200 Eleventh Avenue features New York’s first En-Suite Sky Garage™.
14 residences feature a private en-suite garage with entry to living room, accessed by key-lock elevator and engineered for use as a car garage.
Triplex Penthouse features multiple green spaces, including terraces, loggia, and full rooftop.
Double-height glass windows and oversized doors with glass balustrades seamlessly integrate indoor space with outdoor space throughout the homes.
Selldorf Architect’s rigor of logic and proportion led to harmonious double-height spaces with ceiling heights of 16’ to 24’ and column-free interiors.
Perfectly proportioned: a typical duplex living room in 200 Eleventh Avenue.
Disappearing kitchens integrate with living areas, as oiled teak folding doors close to become wood-paneled walls, instantly concealing the entire kitchen.
Teak islands with a unique drop-leaf side function as counter space for coking, as serving buffet or a table.
“Clearly this building is for somebody who makes a choice. It’s not “existenzminimun” at all…but it’s also not gratuitous. We try to give substance to it…substance and taste. It’s an exercise on shaping and making proportions.” –Annabelle Selldorf
Limited edition and highly customized homes led to average sales values at nearly double the area average.
