A greenery-infused rooftop deck by the landscape architecture firm behind NYC’s beloved High Line park has popped up atop 50 West 23rd Street. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the 11th-story rooftop garden gives employees who work in the office building a serene outdoor area where they can bring their laptops and take a break from being stuck inside a cubicle.

Located in the heart of the Flatiron District, the 340,000-square-foot, 13-story pre-war building is already a busy office complex with some big name tenants like Dropbox, SoundCloud, Grovo, and Manhattan’s first Brooklyn Roasting Company café on the first floor.

Although rooftop gardens are getting to be a dime a dozen in the Big Apple, taking a work break in a space designed by the same designers behind the High Line is certainly an on-the-job perk that you won’t find everywhere.
