One of five finalists in the Port Authority’s competition to replace New York City ’s midtown bus terminal, our team’s design created a new civic landmark that urbanistically knitted together historic Hell’s Kitchen and the emerging Hudson Yards district, replacing what is now a vehicular ‘no-man’s-land’ with a vibrant multi-faceted public facility as part of a long-range master plan for the area. A 9.8-acre rooftop park, together with a 33,000 SF Eighth Avenue plaza form, was designed to form a link in a new chain of public spaces that would have extended all the way from the High Line to Bryant Park.
