New renderings of Pier 97 have been released by Hudson River Park Trust. Located opposite West 57th Street on the northern end of Hudson River Park, the pier will undergo construction starting next fall. Architecture firm !melk is responsible for the design of the approximately 680-by-120-foot pier and the adjacent upland area fronting the Route 9A bikeway, alongside the western border of Hell’s Kitchen.

Programming for Pier 97 includes landscaping, a children’s playscape, sports activity field, water play features and sculptural elements, gathering spaces in the center and far west end of the pier, multiple seating areas, an all-ages slide and woodland walk, a comfort station, concessions shop, and a park operations building.

The concrete structure was reconstructed in 2013 and currently sits empty.

  1. Thanks to YIMBY: This is a paradise island on the water, if no one intentionally creates dirty things or crimes. But now, surveillance cameras should be there: For the safety of everyone’s happiness.

  2. Looks great, this’ll be a beautiful place to watch the ships and skyline.
