HFZ Capital Group has announced that both towers that comprise The XI (“The Eleventh”), have topped out. The East Tower, known as No. X stands 300 feet tall and topped out this month, the West Tower, known as No. I stands 400 feet tall and topped out last fall. Featuring architecture designed by the world renowned Bjarke Ingels, The XI is a mixed-use residential and commercial development which offers 236 luxury condominium residences, as well as the first US destination by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, voted the World’s #1 Hotel Brand by Travel + Leisure in 2017 and 2018.
The XI is an architectural accord realized through an extraordinary collaboration between the world’s most visionary minds: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, Gabellini Sheppard Associates, Gilles & Boissier and Enzo Enea. Rising above the Hudson River and High Line and taking up one square block between 17th and 18th Streets and 10th and 11th Avenues, The XI is comprised of two towers clad in travertine that are the tallest buildings in West Chelsea. The unique twisting design of the two buildings allow for unparalleled Hudson River and City views from all residences, with nearly all of the residences offering entirely unique layouts.
“The XI topping out is an incredible achievement of dynamic technology and visionary engineering. We are giving the world a truly unique development that features an impressive array of residential, recreational, culture, and wellness experiences that have never been available in one location,” said Ziel Feldman, Chairman and Founder of HFZ Capital Group.
The XI’s design draws inspiration from New York City’s classic Modernist structures and cultural institutions to create an architectural form that has not been conceived anywhere else in the world. The XI is a new landmark that will anchor Manhattan’s new West Side and add a dynamic twist to the new “Architecture Row” emerging along the Hudson River. The row boasts remarkable buildings designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects including the Renzo Piano-designed Whitney Museum of American Art, Jean Nouvel’s The Chelsea Nouvel and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building, in addition to forthcoming buildings by Norman Foster, Thomas Heatherwick and Jeanne Gang.
“The two towers transform and adapt to their surroundings and each other as they rise from the ground, reorienting themselves to respond to the High Line, the Hudson River and the surrounding arts district. This mutual responsivity allows all residents from each of the towers expansive views of the city and river around them,” said Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner of BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. “
The 400-foot-tall West Tower, No. I, will feature 149 condominiums designed by award-winning firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates. Rich materials layer the transition from public to private spaces with stone, travertine, wood and glass. Residents enter the Tower though a double height 23-foot lobby with calming lounges, a fireplace and a sculptural desk.
Arising from Six Senses’ mind-body-and beyond philosophy, residents at The XI will enjoy 60,000 square feet of amenities, including a private, 18,000 square foot amenities club designed by award-winning firm Gabellini Sheppard. Curated and managed by Six Senses New York, The XI Club offers access to the best in wellness, nutrition, fitness, lifestyle, and spa services from around the globe and at home in New York City. A stunning 75-foot glass-enclosed, sunlit swimming pool accompanied by a hot tub and poolside cabanas on the expansive deck.
Located in the East tower, No X, Six Senses New York features 137 guest rooms and suites designed by Gilles & Boissier. Two restaurants will showcase the brand’s popular culinary approach to wellness by serving local, organic and sustainably-sourced dishes. Owners at The XI will enjoy access to Six Senses’ wellness club and spa, preferred reservations at both restaurants, and hotel services including valet parking, room service, housekeeping, and laundry service.
