This NYC Department of Parks and Recreation project will provide a centralized facility for maintenance and operations, public comfort stations, a visitor information kiosk, and offices of Friends of The High Line, as well as a new restaurant adjacent to the High Line Park at Washington and Gansevoort Streets in the Meat Packing District.

The environmentally conscious facility is being designed with the goal of achieving a Silver LEED certification. Energy recovery units and high efficiency HVAC equipment will achieve a 30% reduction in energy usage. The four-story-26,000- ft2 Maintenance and Operations Facility shares southern and western boundaries with the new Whitney Museum of Art building designed by Renzo Piano as a series of set-back terraced galleries.
