Description Show more

Hudson River Park was created in 1997 with a cost of $330 million for 550 acres, including 13 piers and 5 miles of esplanade. The largest pier within the park, Pier 40, at Houston Street, currently has 2,200 long-term parking spaces as well as indoor and outdoor athletic fields. At least half of the 12 million square feet that make up Pier 40 is designated parkland, with the rest committed to compatible park and commercial uses. MNLA Principal Signe Nielsen was the joint venture partner on the team that prepared a comprehensive master plan and design guidelines for the 550-acre Hudson River Park that stretches from the Battery to 59th Street, including 13 public access piers. This plan is premised on reclaiming the waterfront for public benefit. Throughout the master plan, the design team collaborated closely with NYS DOT to integrate the bikeway into the park plan. More than three decades since the plan was completed, the park is a valuable resource to area residents and visitors.
