The Highline Development

459 West 14th Street

New York, NY

This project entailed the construction of a new 1-story commercial building under the existing highline. The roof of the building is 70% glass for easy highline access, and 30% concrete on metal deck. To provide an efficient lateral load path, steel moment frames are incorporated throughout the entire building and strategically placed to avoid existing highline structure and accommodate the architectural layout. At the ground floor, most of the columns are transferred to existing highline columns to maximize space at the cellar level.
