Danish firm BIG has unveiled a new rendering of its pair of rotated towers currently under construction in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood, de zeen reports.

The updated overview of BIG’s The Eleventh development, which is being built alongside the city’s High Line elevated park, shows the towers appearing to lean towards one another in a perspective from the other side of the Hudson River.

“Both buildings are detailed with gridded windows that are staggered to follow the slope of the walls, with a second smaller volume protruding from the top,” de zeen says.

Developer HFZ Capital Group’s towers will rise from a low-level building wrapping a ground-floor courtyard. There will be another skybridge link at a much higher level.

There will be 246 residences, with 149 in the West Tower, and the remainder in the East Tower, along with a 137-room hotel.
