200 Eleventh Avenue via Douglas Elliman 200 Eleventh Avenue via Douglas Elliman
When the first train ran down the West Side Elevated Line in 1933, the line ran through nondescript meatpacking plants and factories on New York's west side. Almost one hundred years later, the area is almost unrecognizable. The factories and meatpacking plants of old art still around, but they now contain Chelsea Market, designer boutiques, hopping restaurants, and in-demand nightclubs. And while the train tracks remained intact, they were planted with greenery, infused with art, and transformed into the High Line, one of New York's most in-demand attractions. This turn of events was thought to be unique to New York, but other cities have turned to the High Line as a template for their own urban rejuvenation.
In addition to serving as one of New York's most popular public parks, the High Line serves as a gorgeous backdrop to some of the most eye-catching buildings in the city: Acclaimed international architects like Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Annabelle Selldorf, and Isay Weinfeld, to name just a few, have chosen that section of West Chelsea for their projects, which would appear to be trying to outdo each other in terms of the most jaw-dropping facade and luxurious apartments and amenities.
Below, we explore take a look inside the newest, most dramatic, most affordable, and most awe-inspiring listings on the market.
