A 12-story glass office building is slated to rise in the Meatpacking District, the New York Post reported.

The 172,000-square-foot tower will be built at 61 Ninth Avenue, on the southwest corner of West 15th Street. The space is currently occupied by Prince Lumber Co., which will relocate its business to West 47th Street and develop the new tower themselves.

Designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, the building will include three floors of retail and restaurants on the fourth floor. The property will have 100 feet of frontage along Ninth Avenue before wrapping west around the corner for another 170 feet along 15th Street.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank’s Justin DiMare, who represented Prince Lumber on their relocation to the Hell’s Kitchen area, told the Post that the owner “was adamant about finding a relocation site and wanted to stay in Manhattan. He has 30 to 40 workers and didn’t want to shut down.”

DiMare and his colleague Paul Ippolito will manage the office leasing, while NGKF Retail’s Jeffrey Roseman will oversee the retail section.

The project is expected to break ground next year and be open to tenants in January 2016. [NYP, 1st item]  – Hiten Samtani
