GEA Projects in the News: Solar Carve Reaches its Peak!

April 16, 2018
Solar Carve tops out at 40 Tenth Avenue! This expansive office building yields over 139,000 sq. ft. within and GEA is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design and sustainability services to this 10-story structure! The average floor plan spans an incredible 14,000 sq. ft. with 16 ft. ceilings and a rooftop but the façade is what makes this building truly so unique. “The façade is covered by a transparent glass curtain-wall, with sheared corners revealing a truncated geometric pattern. The shearing was guided by the sun’s relationship with the area so that it would minimize the building’s shadow with the area, and most significantly, it will never cast a shadow on the High Line.” Unlike any other building in the Meatpacking District, this architecturally distinct building will be hard to miss! Completion is expected by March 2019. See more at New York Yimby!
