Construction is wrapping up on 345 West 14th Street, which has been dubbed 345 Meatpacking by the developer and architect, DDG. The tower is a great addition to the neighborhood; its Kolumbia brick facade—from Denmark—compliments its historic neighbors, while bronze-cladding on the upper floors adds a distinctive flair uncommon to New York.
345 Meatpacking even looked great during construction, as the project was covered in a shroud designed by Yayoi Kusama. Luckily something did emerge from the polka dots, and the final product is excellent. The building contains a total of 37 units, and should open this year.
