860 Washington

Foundation work is underway at James Carpenter's 10-story office tower at the southern end of the High Line. When completed in late 2015, the glassy tower will bring 2 floors of retail and 8 floors of office space to the trendy Meatpacking District. The simplicity of its glass curtain wall exterior will provide contrast to recent, nearby architecture, such as 837 Washington, that employs a more industrial palette of brick, concrete, and dark metal.
