8. Residences by Jean Nouvel

OHNY Hudson River Architectural Tour-NYC Jean Nouvel Chelsea residence

Our guides compared the facade of Jean Nouvel’s residences at 100 11th Avenue to a Mondrian painting, and it’s easy to see why. The intricate geometric pattern is a striking feature of the waterfront along the Hudson and the different shades of glass shimmer, reflecting the water. When it was unveiled in 2010, the New York Times hailed it as a winning combination of grit and glamour, and it certainly adds to Chelsea’s high end status.
