Morris Adjmi’s 450 West 14th Street office tower unveiled 

Architect Morris Adjmi has designed a stunning, ten-storey glass office tower to sit above the Highline atop a three storey industrial building on West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District of New York City. Developed by Charles Blaichman, who also developed the Meier-designed Towers on the West Side, the building is described as a “boutique” office building.

In addition to housing 100,000 sq ft of offices, the building will accommodate 8,000 sq ft of upscale retail space on the ground floor levels. The Highline, a disused elevated rail line which is being redeveloped as an urban park, will run through the building and be connected to it by an elevator and staircase, which will provide tenants direct access to the park.

The building, which will seek a United States Green Building Council LEED rating for core and shell, is expected to be completed in 14 months.
