The final steel beam was recently put in place on the 270-foot-high glass and metal-clad office building in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district. The building , designed by Cetra Ruddy , will be completed in 2017.
In total , the 18-story building will offer 250,000 sf of commercial space thanks to an adapted historic building that connects to the new tower. The offices will be almost completely column-free and have a modern aesthetic with an exposed steel structure , contrasting blackened stainless steel walls and terrazzo floors , floor-to-ceiling windows , and 8,000 sf of outdoor terrace space.
In addition to the office space and innovative workplaces , the building will also have space for shops on the ground floor.
The building will fit into and build upon the Meatpacking district , which is packed with former warehouses , but is now a hotbed of trendy restaurants , shops , and clubs.
