NEW MEATPACKING BUILDING
Yesterday, 837 Washington broke ground on 55k SF of office and retail set to open next year. Despite the neighborhood's roots, the list of prospective tenants does not include a butcher. Instead,fashion tenants are hot. (Maybe they could compromise and recruit the person who made Lady Gaga's meat dress.)

We snapped the co-developers before they got their boots dirty: Taconic Investment Partners co-CEO Paul Pariser, Thor Equities CEO Joe Sitt, and Taconic co-CEO Charles Bendit. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects’ Morris Adjmi, the project is targeting tech,media—or keeping with the neighborhood’s current spirit—fashion. “We’ve already got a list of interested parties,” says Paul, who confirmed he’s leaning toward a high-fashion retail tenant.

Everyone then strolled to the third floor at the Standard, where we snapped Joe with Thor EVP Melissa Gliatta overlooking the site. Later, Paul took us to a window looking south: “Right there,” he said, pointing to the soon-to-be $700M, 200k SF Whitney Museum set to open in 2015, “That is what will bring thousands of new people to the area.” (And thousands of confused Eli Whitney fans.)

As we left the Standard, we spied Morris, who also designed the neighboring 40 Gansevoort and the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn.
