The building was named after American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson.[7] It was designed and developed by Michael David Kirchmann of GDSNY with GF55 Partners as the architect of record; construction started in 2016 and was completed in 2020.[2] The building is situated on two lots that were formerly occupied by a single story car stereo store and a four-story apartment building, both of which were demolished to make way for the new development.[2] The design of the building uses a grid of windows, columns, and beams[4] and is clad in Alabama limestone.[6] A distinctive feature of the structure is a cantilever on the upper three levels, which makes it one of only two structures with a cantilever along the High Line.[4][5] The building is also one of only 24 properties in Manhattan to receive the New York City Green Property Certification[9] (as 239 Tenth Avenue), which recognizes properties listed as among the safest in the city to live and work.[10][11][12][9]
