When people think of the meatpacking district, they associate it with the historic character that can only be found in New York City. Through past years the neighborhood has been booming with artists, designers and creative firms working alongside the meatpacking plants. This trend continues to strive with the newest addition to this district of Manhattan, the new retail hub emerging with the ground breaking by Taconic Partners and Thor Equities. It consists of a 55,000 s/f retail/office building across from the High Line. The new structure is more of a work of art than a building with a steel frame stretching toward the sky and a brick base that can only maintain the historic charm of the meatpacking district. Not only will this new structure preserve the meatpacking district New Yorkers love, it is also expected to earn LEED gold certification. This new addition to one of the most iconic neighborhoods shows how the future will continue to flourish and strive. For more information about this please click on the link below.
