“When we planned this hotel, we didn’t want it to interrupt the flow of the community and the surrounding area. So instead of plopping this big structure in the middle of the neighborhood, we designed around the High Line and propped the hotel up on these legs, so that life as it was could continue happening around the hotel. The hotel kind of floats above the highline, and has become a part of the downtown’s skyline.”
