Studio Gang’s 40 Tenth Avenue building adjacent to the High Line tops out

Overlooking the High Line in New York City’s Meatpacking district, a new 12-storey building designed by Studio Gang, the Chicago based practice headed up by Jeanne Gang, has topped out. Now named 40 Tenth Avenue, the building was previously nicknamed the ‘Solar Carve Tower’ due to its construction, which twists and turns to avoid casting shadows onto the High Line and the street.

Studio Gang has done extensive research into the solar carving process in relation to the design and construction of towers. The sculpted façade includes cut-out features also enhance the interior design, bring light and air into the building.


In some of the prime spaces at 40 Tenth Avenue the ceiling heights reach to a lofty 17 ft

Further notable design elements include the sweeping curtain wall and the building’s tapered shape that is narrower at ground level, opening up possibilities for public space and new relationships with its context at street level in the Meatpacking district.

Co-developed by Aurora Capital and William Gottlieb Real Estate, the building stretches across 139,000 sq ft, with 40,000 square feet of retail space opening up onto 10th Avenue. In some of the prime spaces, the ceiling heights reach to a lofty 17 ft. 40 Tenth Avenue incorporates 20,000 sq ft of outdoor space into its design – including a roof deck with panoramic views, second floor outdoor space adjacent to The High Line, and eight floors that open up to private outdoor space.
