Glass Addition Overlooking the High Line Preserves Chelsea’s Brick


Located in West Chelsea between the High Line and West Street, the project maintains the district’s  industrial aesthetic by retaining the four-story brick base while introducing a three-story steel-framed glass addition. Respecting the neighborhood’s vibrant arts scene, the ground floor will house art galleries and retail space, with offices occupying the upper floors. The addition’s eye-catching cantilever design provides part of the existing roof top as an outdoor terrace to provide gathering space and to take advantage of views of the High Line.
