76 11th Avenue, also knows as The XI, has finally started to show itself. Construction began in the Fall of 2016. Running the length of 11th Avenue between 17th and 18th Street, the site is one of the largest parcels of land to be developed since the recent surge of construction started along the High Line, and the latest photos show that the transformative project is finally beginning its climb into the West Chelsea skyline.
Purchased in April of 2015 by HFZ Capital for $870 million, the site will be the home of two mixed-use towers. The first is slated to rise 25 stories and 302 feet, and will be operated by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas, with 137 guest rooms. This will be the Bangkok-based hotel chain’s first location in the United States. The second tower will rise to 35 floors and 402 feet, and is set to become a 240-unit residential tower. Both buildings will share a four-story base, which will offer up 181,893 square feet of commercial space.
KRAUS Hi-Tech Home Automation, a full service, CEDIA certified, technology integrator with over 20 years of experience will be tapped to provide the residential technology for the project. Using their specific experience in providing home automation in new, high end homes on a building-wide scale, Kraus will give The XI a white glove technology experience . Kraus will be outfitting each unit with a robust base package of home automation including Lutron panelized lighting, Ruckus Wireless Wi-Fi and Control4 Automation and much more.
