Features

SHVO and Victor Group’s new condominium building, The Getty at 239 Tenth Avenue, recently topped off construction. The High Line-hedging condo has announced that it will host more than just residences; it will also hold a private art gallery known as the Hill Art Foundation. The gallery will showcase the collection of J. Tomilson Hill and his wife Janine, and will occupy the first two stories of the 12-story structure. Mr. Hill, Vice Chairman at private equity firm Blackstone Group, and Mrs. Hill, director of fellowship affairs at the Council on Foreign Relations, have been collecting art together since their marriage in 1980. The collection is valued at more than $800 million today, and features a beautiful combination of modern and classic art, including Renaissance and Baroque bronzes, Christopher Wools, Bacons, Warhols, Lichtensteins, and Twomblys.

Hill’s museum, along with the rest of the building, is slated to for completion in 2017 and will be open to the public Mondays through Saturdays with free admission. Hill hopes that his gallery will provide arts education to the city’s public school students, a department in need following many cuts to arts programming.
The Getty, designed by ground-breaking architect Peter Marino, is 12 stories, and is named after the gas station that previously occupied the site, and is Marino’s first downtown building. Like a jewel-box, the exterior features a variegated glass and metal facade. Aside from Hill's 6,400 square-foot museum, the building will host eight residential condos, including two duplexes and a two-level penthouse. Amenities include a fitness center, private storage, and a state-of-the-art lobby.
