The Related Companies and Taconic Investment Partners plan to open a sales office shortly for a 26-story apartment building known as The Caledonia that will have its own second-story entrance to the planned High Line park in Chelsea.

The Caledonian is located at 450 West 17th Street at Tenth Avenue and it will have 190 condominium apartments that are expected to range in price from $595,000 for a studio to more than $4 million for a penthouse unit. The building will also have rental units but a spokesperson for Related told that the precise number was not yet available and that the rental units will have a separate elevator bank.

Gary Handell is the architect, but renderings are not yet available and are expected soon.

The developers will build a separate staircase and elevator from the street to the planned park on the elevated rail line that runs from Ganesvoort to 30th Streets.

Clodagh is designing the lobby that will include a waterfall, a bamboo grove, a library, a fireplace and a concierge stand illuminated by a pulsating light sculpture.

The development will also have an internal courtyard, a meditation garden, a fitness club and some terraces.

The High Line elevated rail line was erected between 1929 and 1934 and closed in 1980 and is now beginning to be converted to a park somewhat similar to one in Paris.

The Related/Taconic project is on the former site of the Chelsea Garden Center and close to another large project planned by Edison Properties LLC and designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects that will include 869 condominium apartments in two towers at 501 West 17th Street.
