Construction is wrapping up on the exterior enclosure at 412 West 15th Street, an 18-story office tower in the Meatpacking District from Rockpoint Group. CetraRuddy is responsible for the design of the tower, which brings 108,469 square feet of commercial space to the booming neighborhood surrounding the High Line. The glass and metal panel façade contrasts with the predominantly brick-clad stock of low rise industrial buildings. A triangulated pattern for the metal panel cladding at the western third of the tower seeks to provide some visual interest to the circulation and back-of-house core.
Architect: CetraRuddy; Developer: Rockpoint Group; Program: Office, Retail; Location: Meatpacking District, New York, NY; Completion: Late 2017.
