Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by HFZ Capital Group, the 908,250-square-foot complex stands on the western side of the High Line along the Hudson River waterfront. The mixed-use property will yield 236 condominiums and a 137-room Six Senses Hotel Resort Spa, which will be the first location in the United States. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction and Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.

Among the 236 homes will be 87 units designed by Gilles & Boissier, while 149 residences will be fitted with interiors by Gabellini Sheppard. Prices range from $2,575,000 to $14,500,000.

"Think Carefully About the Space," says Michael Gabellini on creating a true conversation space in your home

Gabellini Sheppard Associates Upper East Side Townhouse Living Room Interiors New York City Design
Gabellini Sheppard Associates Founding Partner Michael Gabellini was interviewed by Mansion Global about "Creating True Conversation Areas in Your Home"

“The best conversation areas work for the people sitting in them," said Gabellini. "They should make you feel at home and at ease whether you are with company or not.

In terms of the layout, looser asymmetry works for a more casual space and creates a sense of blended eclecticism. More formal, classic layouts work best for sophisticated entertaining. This allows for comfortable sociability and character.

If your intent is to create conversation, make sure everyone can arrange and rearrange their own comfort zone and sitting position. It’s very hard to have a conversation when everyone is leaning and lost in depths of deep upholstery, so opt for sofas that lets you sit upright enough to feel comfortable without making you feel self-conscious.”
