About the Project:

Hudson Square is a cornerstone of New York City’s economic diversification strategy with its high concentration of creative industries. Because such companies are highly mobile, quality of life considerations are paramount to keeping these businesses in Hudson Square to ensure the area’s sustained economic viability. The Streetscape Improvement Plan, commissioned by the local Business Improvement District (BID), is the framework for future success, adaptability and growth of the neighborhood.
