project at a glance

At 220,000 square feet, the eight-story Whitney Museum of American Art's new location at the start of the High Line in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District more than doubles the size of the uptown building it called home for the past 45 years.

In addition to the largest column-free gallery in the city – which offers more than 18,000 square feet of open exhibition space – the museum includes smaller galleries, classrooms and studio spaces, art-handling and storage areas, a wet treatment lab, a conservation lab, a restaurant, an auditorium, special events spaces, a museum shop, film and video rooms, a theater, and a works on paper study center.

The building’s unique façade features a step structure that creates 15,000 square feet of sculpture terraces, outdoor galleries and event space, from which visitors may enjoy sweeping views of the Hudson River to the west and the midtown Manhattan skyline to the east.
