The Future Whitney In Progress

Two and a half years after its groundbreaking and nearly a year since the addition of its highest steel beam, the shape and scale of Whitney Museum’s future home is fully visible at the southern entrance to the High Line park on the West Side of Manhattan. 

This fall the interior of the Museum began to take shape with the construction of the gallery walls. Beginning this month, enormous ribbon-like steel panels are being hoisted into place, completing the appearance of the building’s façade.

As work on the building progresses, check back in with Whitney Stories for updates and new photographs of the construction site.
