French architect Jean Nouvel and Beyer Blinder Belle (whose sustainable portfolio includes a $193 million renovation of Cass Gilbert’s 1936 Thurgood Marshall Federal Courthouse in lower Manhattan, seeking a LEED rating) are currently in pursuit of an unspecified level of LEED certification at 100 11th Avenue in West Chelsea, across the street from Frank Gehry’s headquarters for the IAC. The 23-story, 140,000 square foot condominium tower broke ground back in the spring and will offer 72 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, along with five penthouses. The 890 to 4,675 square foot apartments vary in price from $1.6 million to $22 million.

While details on specific green features don’t seem to be available yet, the building’s high-performance curtain wall will be composed of 1,700 uniquely-dimensioned and angled colorless glass panels (similar to the individually-designed and fabricated panels at IAC across the street). Nouvel stated that he conceived the tower as a “vision machine;” every unit in the tower will boast uninterrupted floor-to-ceiling windows, from 35 to 175 linear feet. The renderings look pretty spectacular- 100 11th Avenue is absolutely a project to watch from both green and engineering perspectives as it continues to rise along the Hudson during the remainder of 2007. New York-based Cape Advisors is the developer with construction services from Gotham Construction. Occupancy is scheduled for sometime in 2008.
