Architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy has designed an 18-story office building at 412 W. 15th St. in New York City, located in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking district.

The firm will also lead the renovations of 85,000 sf of additional office and boutique retail space in connecting buildings.

The 140,000 sf project was originally supposed to be a hotel. The developer, Boston’s Rockpoint Group, felt the local hotel market was too saturated, so it decided to try to attract the growing number of tech, finance and creative companies that have emerged in the neighborhood. CetraRuddy adapted its design to make it suitable for commercial use. Among its features, the building will have 8,200 sf of outdoor space on six terraces, designated for workplace or informal gathering places. 

Crain’s New York reported back in February that annual rents in the building can go as high as $150 per square foot. 

The 270-foot-high tower might be the final skyscraper in the area, as Crain’s also reported that a zoning change capped the height of buildings in the Meatpacking district to 130 feet.
