The large concrete pots that form the foundation of Thomas Heatherwick’s Pier 55 park over the Hudson River are close to completion. These massive, funnel-shaped components are anchored to a number of individual concrete piers and create a striking appearance from the shore. They serve to support the pier’s undulating, rolling terrain and varying topographical elevations, which will eventually be covered in a lush landscape of vegetation and greenery. The construction site is located along the Chelsea waterfront and rises where Cunard’s Pier 54 once stood. The 2.7-acre park features a total of 425 piles and is being managed by the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT). Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, P.C. is designing the landscaping.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 532 West 20th Street, an 11-story condominium in Chelsea. A large amount of formwork is visible on the main façade as crews build out the walls of the fourth and fifth floors. Located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue, the structure is being constructed by design-build firm DDG, which purchased the plot for $24.25 million in 2014. The building will contain 27,019 square feet of residential space divided into nine apartments, for an average of 3,000 square feet apiece. The site is a short walk from the High Line, the waterfront, and Chelsea Piers.
