“The machine aesthetic is everywhere,” observed the New York Times of HL23 when it rose above the High Line in 2011, noting that the 14-story Chelsea building’s eastern panels were partially manufactured on the same presses used to make parts for Mercedes trucks. This event brings Los Angeles architect Neil Denari (NMDA) and New York developer Alf Naman (Alf Naman Real Estate Advisors) together to discuss HL23’s realization, from its aerodynamic design and site relationship to its significance for New York’s high-end real estate market.
