    COOKFOX designs a biophilic office building along the High Line that looks to connect with nature.

    COOKFOX Architects has designed its next version of the sustainable workplace: 510 West 22nd Street, a speculative office building set to rise beside the High Line. While One Bryant Park—the firm’s groundbreaking Platinum LEED tower—distinguished itself on the city skyline with a glacial, shard-like glass profile, 510 responds directly to the neighboring elevated-rail-turned-urban-park with a biophilic approach that seeks to connect tenants with nature.

    The building’s predominantly glass curtain wall has dark charcoal-colored metal mullions that reflect the High Line’s steel structure and brise-soleils that reduce glare and mitigate heat loading. Landscaped terraces on the second and seventh floors have timber ceilings that recall the park’s Ipe wood benches. The architects also gave the building a High Line of its own with a rooftop garden complete with mobile planters on train tracks.

    Inside, high ceilings, abundant daylight, and an under-floor ventilation system create a pleasing and healthy environment for workers. The architects optimized views to the city and the High Line by cantilevering the floor slabs 15 feet off the columns, making way for unbroken expanses of glass on the perimeter. Operable windows provide access to fresh air and let in the sounds of the birds who live in the High Line’s birch thicket just outside.

    As with COOKFOX’s last office tower, 510 will seek a LEED Platinum rating, banking not just on the energy saving measures of its high-performance envelope and efficient mechanical systems, but on the strides it takes in establishing an environment conducive to the health and wellbeing of its human inhabitants. The building’s completion is projected for 2014, though construction will not begin until developer The Albanese Organization secures an anchor tenant.

    Yesterday I saw a For Sale sign on the little red brick building opposite this one. The High Line Canyon continues to evolve.

    I desperately wish that the hideous parking lots on the west side of 10th between 17th and 18th would be redeveloped.

    Glass installation has started here at 837 Washington, with full windows in on the top floor above Washington and wrapping around the corner on W 13th.

    Looking very sharp.

    One surprise: The joints for the big beams have been left very visible, with connectors at mid-span showing big nuts & bolts, ala the High Line.

    It's looking great -- but screaming to be taller ...

    The original proposal vs. approved design now being built:

    I see many orgies in the High Line's future.

    High Line Park will be capped with a giant bowl theater

    Final phase of the $250M park expected to be completed by the end of 2014. When done, it'll run from W.34th St. to Gansevoort St.

    Builders of the High Line — the ribbon of park stretching along and above the West Side from Gansevoort St. to midtown — revealed a stunning new design for the park’s final phase, a planted amphitheater hovering over W. 34th St.

    Is this the West Side of Manhattan or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon?
    Builders of the High Line — the ribbon of park stretching along and above the West Side from Gansevoort St. to W. 30th St. — revealed a stunning new design for the park’s final phase, a planted amphitheater that will rise over the park’s 10th Ave. terminus.


    The Diller Scofidio + Renfro design is the highlight of the park’s third and final phase, a $90-million extension, a loop around the Hudson railyards from W. 30th to W. 34th Sts.
    “The new design for ‘the Spur’ will offer the public an immersive experience of nature in the heart of New York City,” High Line builders said in a statement. “Visitors will enter a circular structure lined with dense woodland plantings that creates an intimate setting. The structure will also provide much-needed work space and amenities, such as public restrooms.

    “‘The Spur’ is the widest area on the High Line and occupies a strategic position in the neighborhood, where it will serve as a visual access point to Hudson Yards, and offer visitors a new and unique park experience.,” the statement continued.
    The first two phases of the park, built mostly on an abandoned elevated rail line, cost close to $150 million. The final phase is expected to be done by the end of 2014.

    Correct that to read "...hovering over W. 30th St."
