High-profile closings beginning at Nouvel’s 100 11th Avenue

December 16, 2009 10:03AM

Allan Schwartzman, a contemporary art curator and consultant, has become one of the first high-profile buyers to publicly close on an apartment at Jean Nouvel’s new West Chelsea development at 100 11th Avenue, the Observer reported. His new pad cost $3.78 million, according to a city deed filed Dec. 12. Nouvel’s building, which Schwartzman called “one of the most interesting buildings erected in New York in decades,” has 24-hour concierge service, an indoor/outdoor lap pool and 72 homes, all of which have floor-to-window ceilings and touch-sensitive bathroom fixtures. Joining Schwartzman at the glassy new tower will likely be Laurence Tosi, chief financial officer at Blackstone and Mario Testino, the fashion photographer, both of whom have put down deposits on apartments.
