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.
