Yet another high-concept green building imagined along the High Line

Aug.August 06, 2016 05:00 PM

The High Line has attracted some pretty spectacular building designs from some of the world’s top architects. And it could be getting yet another, this time from the firm Weston Baker Creative.

Renderings of the 12-story structure show a futuristic, angular building at the Rem Koolhaas parcel at 511 West 18th Street along Tenth Avenue, according to 6sqft.

The mixed-use concept would include residences, an art gallery and the kicker: 10 levels of indoor farming terraces. The tower’s concrete base would meet the High Line walkway with a full-floor, glass-enclosed gallery.

“As the sun comes across the sky to the west, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day,” according to Weston Baker’s website.

But unlike many of the High Line’s ultra-exclusive developments, this building would have sections that are open to the public, including views of the indoor farm, a public “observation garden” on the top floor and an art gallery on the second floor. [6sqft]Christopher Cameron
