Upon completion, it will provide the highest standard for today’s workplace with state-of-the-art infrastructure, forward-thinking amenities, and a cutting-edge healthy work environment. Highlights include a spectacular 10,000-square-foot roof deck with lush landscaping, a 7,000-square-foot tenant-only amenity space, an upscale French steakhouse and artisanal European style market operated by Michelin-starred Chef Daniel Boulud, and a 54,000 square foot Chelsea Piers Fitness club.
