The Hudson Yards in Midtown Manhattan will no longer remain the same. Steven Holl Architects have chalked a master plan that will transform both the eastern rail and the western rail yards into a “technologically correct” wonderland. The prestigious project, undertaken by Extell Development Company, proposes to conjoin the two railway yards and develop the 12-million square feet of undeveloped land that surrounds the rail yards.
The epicenter of the project is the proposed suspension bridge that would span the rail yards and support a 19.5 acre public park. The surrounding area would feature architectural excellence in the form of three interconnected towers flanked by an array of small towers. The prestigious plan aims at maximizing public space without interfering the train service.
