Join ASLA-NY, James Corner Field Operations and Landscape Forms on August 16th!
Hudson River Park’s Gansevoort Peninsula sits on 5.5 acres along the Hudson River directly across from the Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District. The site initially was developed on fill, allowing Field Operations an incredible opportunity to incorporate both ecological restoration as well as access to the water that wouldn’t be possible at a typical Hudson River Park pier. Working closely with the community through a series of workshops, the design weaves together passive and active uses, including a salt marsh, a historic 13th Ave promenade, a multi-use sports field, an upland beach with kayak access, and numerous other park amenities and gardens. Gansevoort Peninsula incorporates habitat enhancements, which contribute to making the shoreline more resilient with direct access for the public. It also features a large Whitney Museum art installation by David Hammons, Day’s End. Gansevoort Peninsula started construction in spring 2021 and is slated to open in 2023.
