Carter's View

New renderings and details of the planned 23-story residential condominium tower designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Beyer Blinder Belle at 100 Eleventh Avenue across 19th Street from the new IAC/Interactive Corporation Building designed by Frank O. Gehry are now available.

Bathrooms will have touch-sensitive fixtures by Jado that include computerized water flow and temperature sensors. The bathrooms will have Kohler tubs and water closets, and fritted glass and Corian surfaces.

Apartments will have operable windows oriented to the south and west and along those window walls floors will be finished with an extra layer of "nearly imperceptible transparent gloss, to boost incoming sunlight into rooms." One rendering on the building's website indicated that some rooms facing the Hudson River will have multiple hanging scrims in front of the windows.

The website also claims that "the building's mirror-canopied pool is designed so that residents may swim comfortably indoors or outdoors, depending upon the weather," adding that "a state-of-the-art glass partition has been customized to enclose the indoor portion of the pool during winter months or inclement weather, so that the indoor portion remains fully operative and warm at all times."

"By raising the restaurant and other public functions of the ground floor to 4' above grade and sculpting a concrete base, Nouvel has created a perfect balance between pedestrian activity and the lively atmosphere of interiors," the website proclaimed.

The project claims to "feature the most highly-engineered and technologically advanced curtain wall ever constructed in New York City - a gently curving, glittering mosaic of nearly 1,700 different-sized panes of colorless glass, each set at a unique angle and torque, sheathing one of the most meticulously customized, high performance residential addresses in the nation."

The developers are West Chelsea Development Partners LLC, a venture of Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors and Cape Advisors, of which Craig D. Wood is a principal.

Nouvel is the architect of 40 Mercer Street, which is nearing completion in SoHo and is notable for its large sliding windows, and of the Arab World Institute and the new Quai Branly Museum, both in Paris.

The building, which will be LEED certified, is scheduled for occupancy late fall 2008.

A one-bedroom apartment with 890 square feet is priced at about $1,980,000 and a 3-bedroom unit with three-and-a-half baths and 1,950 square feet is priced at about $4,190,000.
