Crews are busy installing the interior finishes to High Line Headquarters, a four-story building located next to the new downtown location of the Whitney Museum of American Art, which is also under construction.
Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop in collaboration with Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners, High Line Headquarters will serve as a critical gathering space for visitors, with a new elevator, public restrooms, and a public meeting room when it opens later this year.
The building will also help keep the High Line’s landscape thriving, by giving gardeners, custodians, and maintenance technicians direct access between storage facilities and the park. This will streamline the transfer of materials, vehicles, and equipment -- one of the current challenges of maintaining a park elevated 30 feet above the street.
