As part of the continued redevelopment of the four-mile Hudson River Park, the Pier55 project is poised to transform a section adjacent to the Meatpacking District into nearly three acres of vibrant new public parkland. Along with lush greenery, cutting-edge design, and waterfront performance spaces, the new park will feature a uniquely diverse array of arts, educational, and community programming. Learn how the partners behind this public-private venture are thinking big about park planning, sustainable design, and artistic programming, while also engaging local artists and residents to create a shared new community space on the Hudson River.
