Samsung Electronics North America has signed a long-term lease for the entirety of 837 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District, company executives from developers Taconic Investment Partners and Thor Equities announced.
“837 Washington Street is an iconic building in New York’s most dynamic and prolific neighborhood,” said Thor Equities CEO Joe Sitt.
“Situated on one of the area’s most highly trafficked corners, 837 Washington Street offers Samsung unrivaled exposure and they join an impressive list of companies that are capitalizing on the area’s trendsetting reputation.”
“We acquired, zoned, and developed this asset with the intent to attract one of the more exciting international brands,” said Paul Pariser, Taconic Investment Partners co-chief executive officer.
“The building has so many unique features including abundant outdoor space and fabulous views of the High Line and the new Whitney Museum. We are delighted to welcome Samsung into the Meatpacking District”.
837 Washington Street is between Little West 12th and West 13th Streets and features six floors in addition to a cellar and available roof space, which boasts views of the High Line Park.
The building has 7,000 s/f of outdoor space on the 2nd floor, 3rd floor and rooftop providing some of Meatpacking’s best vantage points of the High Line Park, Hudson River, Midtown and Lower Manhattan.
Featuring a design from architect Morris Adjmi, 837 Washington Street is a fully restored two-story landmark brick façade anchoring a new, iconic six-story twisting steel and glass exo-skeleton.
The torquing structure, which rises from within the historic building, is wrapped by a floor-to-ceiling window wall and greenery. The project was engineered to achieve LEED Gold certification.
