located on the west side of manhattan, in close proximity to BIG’s VIA57, ‘787 11th avenue‘ is directly across the street from dewitt clinton park and just one block away from the hudson river park and west side highway. designed by rafael viñoly to meet the growing demand for upscale office space in the clinton area, the scheme will add 86,000 square feet to the building, bringing total square footage to over 500,000 square feet.

the property will feature large, open floorplates measuring over an acre in size; 24-foot (7 m) high ceilings in certain areas; oversized windows to let in natural light; executive parking in the basement; a 12,000 square foot roof deck for the exclusive use of office tenants; and a partnership with the adjacent mercedes club — a health facility across the street. tenants will also benefit from a number of convenient transportation options, including shuttle service to transit hubs and a planned citibike station.

‘georgetown has a reputation for developing the very best properties so it’s an honor to join with them on this project,’ said viñoly, whose recent projects in new york include 432 park avenue. ‘the opportunity to combine the building’s historic architecture with a sleek and modern design is one I could not pass up.’
