The owner sought to optimize tenant comfort while reducing energy and water use in this renovation and addition atop an iconic building in the Meatpacking District. A range of solutions include high performance glass on the east and west facades, a green roof with accessible green terraces on the existing building and rainwater capture from all roof terraces. Office spaces have 100% under floor air distribution, water efficient fixtures and greywater recycling and rooftop solar hot water collectors provide domestic hot water. These strategies integrate the project with the Highline Park which runs through the building.
