The High Line, New York City's elevated park created from a conversion of rail lines, has provided an organizing principle for a series of luxury condo buildings designed by big names in architecture, including Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, and Robert A.M. Stern.

Vox Media's e-journal Curbed NY has compiled a nifty presentation mapping the developments, with mini-profiles of these upcoming and recently completed buildings.

From new builds to the conversion of a former women's prison, these facilities will change the face of the Big Apple. (Comments at Curbed, regarding the prospect of numerous luxe towers overlooking the park, range from "great social good" to "we killed the thing we loved.")

Enjoy Curbed's presentation at this link. Here's a look at some of the projects:
