According to ArchDaily, Rotterdam-based OMA has been commissioned by New York developer Related Companies to design its newest High Line project, at West 18th St.

The Rem Koolhaas-led firm isn’t the only starchitect practice that Related Companies has pulled in to work on projects near the High Line. Zaha Hadid Architects was tapped to design a luxury apartment project on 520 W 28th St., and Thomas Juul-Hansen designed two towers with a shared lobby underneath the High Line at 505 W. 19th St., the New York Post reports.

The commission will be OMA’s first major project in New York City, ArchDaily reports. More details yet to be released.
