New York City’s newest public park, the High Line, built along the route of a former elevated railway, presented an opportunity for new development of buildings and green spaces on Manhattan’s west side. LHPA’s design for a 230,000 square foot mixed use development spans both sides of the High Line and includes a 23-story residential tower, a 13-story boutique hotel, and a through-block shopping arcade. The structure of the High Line is used as a feature of the project. Open space adjacent to the project will complement the elevated High Line Park.
The project’s commercial component extends over the entire area and consists of three floors above two cellar levels. The residential component consists of twenty stories of residential units and amenities above the commercial base. A terrace and other residential amenities are located on the roof, with mechanical bulkheads rising above. The hotel component consists of ten floors of hotel rooms above the commercial base. One mechanical level and bulkheads are located above the hotel, along with a roof terrace for fair-weather use.
LHPA is designing the High Line Tower in conjunction with architect Paul Gates and engineers Weidlinger Associates and George Langer.
