Architects: Renzo Piano Building Workshop; Program: Offices; Location: New York, NY; Completion: 2014.
The new maintenance and operations hub for the High Line has opened at the park‘s southern end. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Beyer Blinder Belle Architects, the building houses the entire support staff and administrators for the park, public restrooms, and a public elevator. The design of the building is meant to evoke the character and details of the historic structures of its neighborhood, the Meatpacking District. Last fall, the High Line organization named the building for major donors and neighbors, the Diller - von Furstenbergs, who have given a combined $35 million since 2005.
