In her last years, she took on a new challenge: designing a luxury apartment complex over the High Line, Manhattan’s famed elevated park.The new apartment building will be nothing short of impressive, with an intricate metal and glass facade sculpted piece by piece. Inside, the high-rise will boast a parking garage with robot valets and the city’s first private 3D IMAX theater.Developer Related Companies broke ground in 2014, and the building should open by early 2017.
