837 Washington Street

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the new six-story construction atop a two-story market building located in the Meatpacking District. The project preserved elements of the existing building, which was originally constructed in 1938, by incorporating an innovative torqued design that complemented the nearby buildings that include both the High Line and the Standard Hotel.

With this project falling under the jurisdiction of the Landmarks Preservation Committee, the project included the maintenance and restoration of the existing facades along both Washington Street and 13th Street. Inboard of the restored facade, the new structure included a new foundation and a steel “exo-skeleton” that rotates in two directions and sits outboard of the new building facade.

Awarded LEED Silver, the project includes exterior terraces and an energy recovery unit. The interior spaces provide future tenants with maximum flexibility for their fit out options. New core spaces include MEP systems, elevators and bathrooms. A high-end lobby space will be constructed off of 13th street and several apertures in the storefront will allow the possibility of multiple retail tenants.
