An old New York warehouse in West Chelsea is about to become a mixed-use office building. The Warehouse, designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, will retain the four-story brick base while a three-story steel-framed glass addition is placed on top of it to create a nice juxtaposition of industrial and modern aesthetics.

The project, which is located between the High Line and West Street, will use its ground floor space to house art galleries and retail shops while offices will occupy the upper floors. The cantilever design of the addition will turn part of the existing rooftop into an outdoor terrace with views of the High Line and the Hudson River. The Warehouse will provide a little less than 100,000 sf of space with an additional 18,000 sf of outdoor space spread across multiple terraces.

Onsite bicycle storage space and 24/7 security and building access are included. The building is also expected to achieve a Wired Certified Platinum rating, which means it is best in class across all features of connectivity and can support current and future tenants with the most stringent technology requirements.

Construction is expected to begin in 2017 and finish in early 2019.
