Construction has begun on the High Line Moynihan Connector, a nearly 1,200-foot-long extension of the High Line with a walkway and bridge that will link the elevated park with the Manhattan West development and provide easier access to Moynihan Train Hall and Penn Station. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill collaborated with James Corner Field Operations for the design, which calls for two 600-foot-long bridges built by Turner Construction Company, and work is proceeding under a $50 million public-private partnership between Empire State Development (ESD), Friends of the High Line, and Brookfield Properties. The extension will run along West 30th Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues and bend to the north at Dyer Avenue to reach the Manhattan West plaza above West 31st Street.

Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Delshah Capital and OTL Enterprises, the 211-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure spans 133,181 square feet and will yield 180 apartments, of which 25 will be designated for affordable housing. The property is also reported to contain a branch of START Treatment & Recovery Center, New York’s largest independent drug treatment agency. Titanium Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor for the development, which is being built between Flatbush Avenue Extension to the east, Chapel Street to the north, Cathedral Place to the south, and Jay Street to the west.
