Blondie’s Treehouse is proud to present the newly completed, 11,000 square foot roof deck at 50 West 23rd Street, a conversion project by developer Two Trees Management. Sitting atop the 11th floor, this space is perhaps the most complex and amenity-rich rooftop spaces anywhere in the Flatiron district.
Budgeted at $2MM and designed by James Corner Field Operations, the landscape architect responsible for the High Line, Blondie’s Treehouse’s team of 35 gardeners and tradespeople built this treasure on budget and ahead of schedule. Led by the team of Tina Dituri, Director of Design and Construction, and Charles Casanova, Director of Sales, the scope included translating the Design Development set of drawings and specifications into a complete and realized piece of architecture.
By controlling the entire project from the bid through the shop process, Blondie’s utilized their in-house team and extensive network of local fabricators. Highlights include a stacked ipe deck detail, custom CorTen steel edging, a made-to-order laser cut CorTen screen, pavers, lounges, and a tech bar.
