Carter's View

West Chelsea Development Partners LLC, a venture of Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors and Cape Advisors, of which Craig D. Wood is a principal, are planning to develop a 21-story residential condominium tower designed by Jean Nouvel at 100 Eleventh Avenue.

The project is across 19th Street from the nearly completed IAC building designed by Frank O. Gehry and across the avenue from Chelsea Piers.

Nouvel is the architect of 40 Mercer Street, which is nearing completion in SoHo and is notable for its large sliding windows.

The rendering at the right, which appeared in the "Luxury Development First Quarter 2007" report put out by Leonard Steinberg and Herv? Senequier of Prudential Douglas Elliman, indicates that the new Nouvel tower will have a low-rise base and that its set-back tower will have a curved southwest corner. More interesting is the fact that the building's facades are highly textured with large, rectangular glass panels of many different sizes that give the appearance of a patchwork quilt.

The building, which is just to the south of a juvenile detention center, will have 72 apartments.

It will also be across 19th Street from another new residential condominium development at 520 West 19th Street, designed by Annabelle Selldorf and just to the east of the Gehry office building, which is distinguished by its sail-like forms. Selldorf is also designing another new residential condominium building a few blocks to the north at 200 Eleventh Avenue that will have 16 units.

Last August, the project at 100 Eleventh Avenue, which is also known as 535 West 19th Street, received a $54,377,150 mortgage from Fremont Investment and Loan of Brea, California.
