HIGH LINE AT THE RAIL YARDS

NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Field Operations is the project lead for the design and implementation of the High Line. Preservation and innovation come together through the adaptive reuse of the existing structure into a new, compelling, one-of-a-kind recreational amenity and public promenade. Representing one-third of the High Line, the Rail Yards is one of the most iconic stretches of the High Line with expansive views of the Hudson River and the Midtown skyline. Section 3 builds upon the identity and success of previous sections, while finding new ways to respond to the radically different context of the once-anticipated Hudson Yards development. The High Line design is a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations (Project Lead), Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf. The Client for this 6-acre project is a private-public partnership between the City of New York and Friends of the High Line.
