Architecture: More photos of Neil Denari's HL23, a new building next to the High Line in New York

April 4, 2011 | 11:22 am


My review of Neil Denari's new condo building HL23 -- a review that is also something of a lament for lost ambition in Los Angeles architecture -- appears in Monday's Calendar section.

Here are some additional images of the acrobatic-looking building, which takes its name from the site where West 23rd Street in Manhattan meets the High Line elevated park.

The project is the first ground-up building for the 53-year-old Denari, who is based in Los Angeles and was for five years director of the Southern California Institute of Architecture. More photos after the jump.
