The construction of architect Neil Denari’s condo building on the High Line, HL23, is chronicled in an exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York that opens tonight.

The exhibit, called “New York Fast Forward: Neil Denari Builds on the High Line,” will be on view until September at the museum, located at 1220 Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street.

Models and renderings of the 14-story luxury condo building in Chelsea will be on display, as well as historic photos of the adjacent High Line. The 12-unit building is connected to the High Line, giving all residents views of the public park.

“What’s ingenious is [the HL23] takes the High Line and uses it as an inspiration,” said Donald Albrecht, co-curator of the exhibit. “It’s is an outgrowth of the transformations happening in Chelsea and the Meatpacking District.”

West Chelsea used to be a manufacturing hub, and Albrecht said HL23’s architecture make it symbolic of the new Chelsea, now filled with art galleries and hip restaurants. The HL23 looks upside down, as the narrow building’s floors become larger as it gets higher.

HL23’s design has already caught the art community’s attention in an exhibit at the Contemporary Museum of Art in Los Angeles last year. Completion of the building is expected next summer.

The project was featured in The Real Deal’s February issue.
