As the city begins to open up and recover, one new attraction that is sure to draw people to its unique architectural design and green space is Thomas Heatherwick‘s Little Island, which just opened to the public this morning at Pier 55 in Chelsea. The 2.4-acre park sits over the Hudson River and features landscape design by MNLA. Hudson River Park Trust is managing the park, which was inspired by a leaf floating on water and utilizes a total of 132 funnel-shaped concrete “pots”that elegantly undulate to form hills, open lawns, winding paths, and even a spot for an amphitheater. Arup served as the project engineers for Little Island, which is located just off of West 14th Street, a short distance from Renzo Piano’s Whitney Museum and Chelsea Market. The cost of the project is around $250 million.
Paramount Group has tapped Kohn Pedersen Fox for an extensive modernization of the lobby and public atrium at 60 Wall Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. The project is envisioned as a requisite improvement to attract top tier commercial tenants looking to base and build their future offices within the building.
Today’s housing lottery round-up features five buildings in Brooklyn and one in each Queens and The Bronx with available affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days.
