In the Factory: Mock-Up of 510 West 22nd St

The new 512 West 22nd Street, designed by COOKFOX, will replace the original 5-story old brick building that was previously 510 West 22nd Street in Chelsea. The new structure will hold office space with large, operable windows and plenty of outdoor green space to enhance worker productivity. Sitting adjacent to the High Line, the new building will also offer fantastic views of the Hudson River and Midtown Manhattan.

The undulating terra cotta façade is currently in the initial stages of production in the Boston Valley Terra Cotta factory.  The full scale mock-up of one of the building’s corners was constructed for review by the project team. Panels were laid out for dry fitting inspection at our facility and then sent for installation by Facade Technologies.
