The 18-story residential condominium tower planned for 200 Eleventh Avenue on the southeast corner at 24th Street will have 16 apartments, fourteen of which will have their own 1-car garage space within the apartment.

Annabelle Selldorf is the architect of the project, which is being developed by Youngwoo & Associates, which is also involved in the Chelsea Arts Tower, a 20-story, commercial condominium building nearing completion nearby on West 25th Street.

Apartment owners can drive their cars into an elevator on Eleventh Avenue and drive them off the elevator into their apartment's garage space. The car elevator's exit will be on 24th Street.

The building is expected to be completed in mid-2008 and according to Leonard Steinberg of Prudential Douglas Elliman the apartments, which will average about 2,500 square feet, are expected to be priced at about $5 million.

Many apartments will have balconies facing east and apartment floors will be teak.

The base of the building will be clad in gunmetal-colored terracotta and the tower in brushed stainless steel. The building's tower will have protruding curved lintels and multi-paned windows and on its long facades with four bays of windows one pair of bays is higher than the other.

The building will have a gym on the second floor.

An article in the January 21, 2007 edition of The New York Times by Fred A. Berstein about the project had a headline proclaiming it to be "A Paparazzi-Proof Condo."

Ms. Selldorf was the architect with Alan Ritchie of the Urban Glass House condominium now nearing completion at 330 Spring Street.

She is also the architect of an 11-story residential condominium building with 26 apartments planned by Bishopscourt Realty, of which Keith and John Jacobson are principals, for 520 West 19th Street in Chelsea. That building will be distinguished by its used of "midnight blue" terracotta and a curved entrance marquee.

Ms. Selldorf is well-known for her design of the interior of the Neue Gallerie on Fifth Avenue at 86th Street and the Abercrombie & Fitch store on Fifth Avenue at 56th Street.
