New Profile on
The High Line
Leave Midtown behind and move to a building on the High Line that redefines the modern workplace. 512W22 is built for a 21st century workforce with architecture that blends the elements of West Chelsea's industrial past with modern, state-of-the-art design tailored for today's distinguished office tenants.
512W22 is located on 22nd Street just west of 10th Avenue – and on the High Line at the Chelsea Thicket. Surrounded by sweeping light and views, the building's network of private terraces blur the line between indoor and outdoor working environments.
Developed by Vornado Realty Trust and The Albanese Organization, 512W22 is pursuing LEED Gold certification and is committed to delivering sustainable, collaborative work spaces that act as a catalyst for creativity.
512W22 is inspired by and pays tribute to the history and texture of the manufacturing and gallery/loft buildings that define the neighborhood:
- Large, concrete poured floors and slabs
- Dramatic ceiling heights
- Oversized operable windows that connect 512W22's tenants to the light,
air and green spaces of West Chelsea
We designed a workplace that was sculpted to extend the High Line into
the building, weaving nature through the
building with deep landscaped terraces.
— Rick Cook, COOKFOX Architects
The High Line's native ecosystem is Manhattan's most inspiring and inviting outdoor space. Taking cues from the High Line's artfully woven, dynamic green corridor that connects the surrounding urban infrastructure, 512W22 features over 16,000 square feet of accessible outdoor space; integrating nature into the workplace and offering intimate views of the adjacent trees and planted spaces.
From the stepped design of the 2nd-to-4th floor "spanish steps" designed as an extension of the High Line's Chelsea Thicket, to
the private gardens sculpted into each floor, 512W22 disrupts the traditional workplace with indoor and outdoor spaces intended
to cultivate collaboration and innovation.
