André Balazs’s line of Standard hotels took its time getting to New York. Now it seems they were waiting for something big, and this is it — for a group that’s made its name with clever renovations, a ground-up new build is a major undertaking.

This Standard hotel looks more or less like a slightly bent UN building on stilts, straddling the High Line, the elevated former railway that’s been turned into lower Manhattan’s new green paradise.
