As a member of LiRo’s Construction Management team, SiteWorks is fostering the landscape architectural elements of this new public open space designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
Extending from West 33rd to West 39th Street this 12 block open space is lined with boulevards on the east and west. The first phase from West 33rd to West 36th accommodates two entrances to MTA’s new No. 7 Subway Extension. The first block (33rd to 34th) is a respite from traffic and holds one of the new MTA entrances. Block two (34th to 35th) will cool and sooth pedestrians with the fountains winding through the block and second MTA entrance. The third block (35th to 36th) holds an innovative playground and cafe. The park is connected to the High Line by the new Hudson Yard development. Ultimately the open space will extend to 42nd Street transforming the West side of Manhattan from an industrial past to an idyllic future.
The first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2015 in conjunction with the opening of the No. 7 Subway Extension.
