Pier 57 winning design selected
The Hudson River Park Trust has selected a winning design for its reimagining of Pier 57, near Chelsea on Manhattan’s west side. LOT-EK‘s design makes use of disused shipping containers in the construction of a mixed-use community facility on the 375,000 square-foot pier. The design includes 170,000 square feet of artisan work space, a 90,000-square-foot ‘Underwater Discovery Center’ for education and exhibits, a rooftop venue for the Tribeca Film Festival, an open-air public market and a 2-acre rooftop park. Dutch landscape architecture firm West 8 and Beyer Blinder Belle will partner with LOT-EK to design the public green space around and on top of the structure. The Park Trust and developer Young Woo & Associates haven’t set a date yet for the estimated $210 million project.
