CetraRuddy’s building at 412 West 15th Street and its historic neighbor will provide a combined 250,000 square feet of office space in the Meatpacking District. The glass-and-steel construction will be softened by a landscaped green roof and five additional terraces, that designers envision can be used by workers in the buildings for relaxation or as an alternative workspace.

The office building, originally designed to be a hotel, towers over the neighboring structures, providing many unique vantage points for workers and visitors to take in the sights of the city. The building’s many terraces integrate seamlessly with the interior’s open floorplates and floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a flexible space for tenants to use in a variety of different ways.

“Our design takes its cue from the existing neighborhood fabric, the incorporation of outdoor terraces for working, meeting, and relaxing takes advantage of the city and river views while also drawing a parallel to the nearby Highline Park,” said John Cetra, founding partner of CetraRuddy.
