New West Chelsea Gym Incorporates the High Line

Enlarge
What is sure to be the first of many business and residential structures built around it, a new branch of the posh Equinox gym opened January 3 under, between, and overlooking the High Line. Their lobby incorporates the High Line's support columns, and the yoga studio looks directly onto the Line itself.

The gym is built into Related's new residential building, the Caledonia. In an effort to incorporate green building standards into the gym, a living plant wall frames the weight room, and the yoga studio floor is made of bamboo which is a renewable alternative to traditional hardwood.
