Co-developers Taconic Investment Partners and Thor Equities have topped out 837 Washington, the Morris Adjmi-designed commercial and retail building in the Meatpacking District.
The twisting structure rises from within an existing landmark building and will be punctuated by a floor-to-ceiling window wall wrapping the facade and greenery filling the negative spaces created by the building’s twist.
Located directly across from the High Line, Standard Hotel, and Whitney Museum, 837 Washington’s topping out represents a milestone for both Taconic and Thor in the Meatpacking District, a neighborhood both firms have been extremely active in.
Previous Taconic developments in the neighborhood include The Caledonia (a 478-unit, mixed-use residential condo and rental), 401 West 14th St. (The Apple Building), 15 Little West 12th Street, and 111 Eighth Avenue (Google’s NYC headquarters).
Thor’s developments in the area include the Scoop Building at 875 Washington Street, 446 West 14th and 412 West 14th Streets.
837 Washington’s 55,000 s/f space has been envisioned as a flagship location for market-leading, global companies in the fashion and technology industries.
Numerous possible divisions allow for up to 38,500 s/f of retail space or 40,000 s/f of office space.
The retail space is anchored by a corner space with nearly 200 feet of frontage on Washington and 13th Streets.
The office portion is serviced by two elevators via a private lobby on Washington Street, and has 12 ft. high ceilings.
The building has private terrace spaces of approximately 500 s/f on the 2nd floor, 3,500 s/f on the 3rd floor, and 3,000 s/f on the roof.
Thor Equities is responsible for the retail leasing of 837 Washington; Newmark Grubb Knight Frank handles office leasing.
