Co-developers Taconic Investment Partners and Thor Equities recently hosted more than 100 of New York City’s top leasing agents at an exclusive cocktail party celebrating the vertical rise and leasing of 837 Washington, an iconic new office and retail building designed by Morris Adjmi.
The project is slated to redefine the Meatpacking District’s architectural, aesthetic and commercial offerings and is on schedule for a January 2014 completion.
“Construction is well underway at 837 Washington and now is the time for a global brand to aggressively seek out this space and make a bold statement,” said Paul Pariser, co-CEO of Taconic. “The building provides a rare opportunity to house office, retail and production all under one roof and in one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City.”
“The heart of the Meatpacking district has long awaited a landmark building to compliment the Standard Hotel — and 837 will fill that void,” said Joseph J. Sitt, CEO of Thor Equities. “Such a distinct building in the trendiest neighborhood in New York City is bound to attract some of the top global brands, further cementing the Meatpacking’s reputation of being the place to be.”
Situated on the corner of Washington and 13th Streets, the existing landmark structure will be restored and integrated within a brand new 55,000-square-foot space envisioned as a flagship location for market-leading companies from the fashion, technology, entertainment and media industries.
The office portion will measure up to 40,000 square feet, serviced by two elevators via a private lobby on Washington Street, and boast soaring 12-foot-high ceilings with full height divided light window walls affording abundant natural light and magnificent views in every direction. 837 Washington’s three retail levels will total approximately 28,000 square feet with nearly 200 feet of retail frontage, anchored by a corner presence on Washington and 13th Streets and just steps away from the bustling activity of The Standard Hotel and the High Line. In addition, the building offers private terrace spaces of approximately 500 square feet on the 2nd floor, 3,500 square feet on the 3rd floor, and 3,000 square feet on the roof, with some of the Meatpacking District’s best vantage points of the High Line, Hudson River, Midtown, and Lower Manhattan.
