CetraRuddy.412 W. 15th StWe thought you might like to know about this new office building going up on 15th Street in Manhattan, which will be the trendy Meatpacking District’s tallest building when completed.

Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Boston-based Rockpoint Group, the 18-story, 130,000-square-foot building features over 8,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space — a rarity for an office project, and indicative of the movement of residential amenities into the commercial sector. The 270-foot high tower also connects to 85,000 square feet of office and retail space in renovated buildings on 14th Street.

About that height distinction: Plans were filed before zoning ordinances changed in the Meatpacking District, limiting heights to 130 feet. With that extra 140 feet, looks like occupants will have quite a view.
