New renderings were revealed this week for 76 Eleventh Avenue, Bjarke Ingels‘ towers on the High Line in New York City. These new views are quite a lot different than images of the diamond-shaped towers that surfaced last November.

The firm’s recent high-profile commissions (hello, Pittsburgh!) reflect Biggie’s mantra: “the sky is the limit, and [you] know that you can have what you want, be what you want, have what you want, be what you want,” ad infinitum.

Now, Ingels is again looking skyward with a new project along New York’s High Line.

The project lapsed due to financial woes by Irish developer Garrett Kelleher. The foundation is in place, and it looks like a place where a giant swimming pool or music venue would fit nicely, but AN is hearing that developers are working with Bjarke Ingels’ Danish firm BIG on a possible Spire part to.
