Construction Update: 860 Washington
Foundation work continues at James Carpenter's mixed-use retail and office tower at the southern end of the High Line. The project has been in the works for several years but construction seems to finally be picking up steam. When completed, the 175 foot tall project will bring 10 floors of office and retail space to the Meatpacking District, already teeming with many high profile residential, hotel and office buildings already constructed or on their way. According to construction managers CNY Group, they are hoping to lure “Google-esque” types of companies as tenants. As for sustainability, the building is seeking certification as a LEED Gold project upon completion.
