Superstructure has reached the final floor, marking the topping off, at 860 Washington in the Meatpacking District. Designed by James Carpenter, the ten-story, 113,848-square-foot structure flanks the High Line park's eastern edge at West 13th Street. When completed, the low rise tower will bring eight floors of office space and two floors of retail at the base. Given the all-glass composition of the exterior wall on all but the northern facade, building occupants will have dramatic views of the High Line and the surrounding Meatpacking neighborhood. The building is targeting LEED silver and is projected to open in the third quarter of 2015.
