Only two building are allowed to hover directly over the High Line, and one of them sure is taking its sweet time. The High Line Building at 450 West 14th Street has been under construction just north of the Standard Hotel (the other High Line straddler) for so long that our Curbed Inside peek was back in 2009. But now the office building, designed by Morris Adjmi, is glassy as heck. How's she looking? Maybe not quite as clean and transparent as we expected, but the first batch of renderings really played up the glass at the expense of the steel. As for future occupants, we haven't heard anything new since Helmut Lang signed on for two floors. Any fresh intel?
