100 Eleventh Avenue is a 23-story residential tower at the intersection of 19th Street and Eleventh Avenue (the West Side Highway) in the borough of Manhattan, New York City, New York. The building is described as "a vision machine" by the architect Jean Nouvel. It has one of the most technologically advanced curtain wall systems in New York City, but also refers to West Chelsea masonry industrial architectural traditions.
The developers of 100 11th Avenue were Craig Wood and Curtis Bashaw, who commissioned French architect Jean Nouvel (Ateliers Jean Nouvel), in conjunction with Beyer Blinder Belle Architects as executive architects. It is described as a conceptual descendant of Nouvel's Arab World Institute in Paris. Nouvel's complex design was site-specific, with Nouvel saying "I can't imagine transporting it somewhere else, even to another location in the center of Manhattan."
