Masterplan for NYC Rail Yards

Architectural firm presents proposal for urban revamp


December 4th, 2007

Stephen Holl Architects (SHA) has presented a design proposal for the Hudson rail yards in New York City.

Extell Development Company, one of five developers currently bidding for this large undeveloped site in Midtown Manhattan, has selected Steven Holl Architects to lead a team of consultants for this project.

Setting a 21st century urban example, SHA and Extell focus on creating a vibrant neighbourhood with inspiring public space that returns considerable financial value to the area.

SHA’s masterplan creates an openness on all sides of the 11 million square foot project that connects Midtown and the Chelsea arts district.

The proposal was on exhibit, along with four other proposals at Grand Central Terminal in New York City for a week in November.
