Arquitectonica worked on the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Master Plan for the New York Economic Development Corporation. This urban design study sought to reconfigure a 69-block area of West Midtown Manhattan by focusing on creating open-space, new residential centers and a prestigious address for New York City businesses, while maintaining the identity of the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. The study examines bulk and massing options under different land use and density assumptions, explores alternative design approaches and investigates the inclusion of sustainable design to create a new standard for future urban development. The resulting plan is informative decisions regarding public open space and transportation infrastructure. The Master Plan also seeks to improve the city’s connection to the waterfront and integrate the already existing transportation infrastructure with the MTA #7 subway extension.
