Superstructure has topped out at Pace Gallery's eight-story expansion in Chelsea, near the High Line. Designed by Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture, the 75,000 square foot development will provide art galleries, offices, event spaces and private viewing rooms. The ground floor will include a public library of Pace's 10,000 catalogued volumes and a gallery with 20 foot ceiling height. The top two floors will be suspended above a large outdoor terrace on the sixth floor, with an additional terrace on the second floor.
Facade installation is underway at the primary street facade, with large panels of black volcanic stone and large windows already cladding the lower half of the structure.
