Hudson Yards Station at 34th Street
- New York
- MTA Capital Construction, WSP
The Number 7 subway extension is an integral part of the New York City Department of City Planning’s redevelopment plan for the far west side of Manhattan and the creation of the Hudson Yards Special District. The new 34 Street / Hudson Yards Station was designed with extensive outreach to and coordination with City’s master plan and the development community. As the lead architect on the WSP team, we have developed a design that addresses 21st Century passenger safety, comfort and convenience, as well as the technical system challenges such as egress, power and ventilation – and this major infrastructure upgrade is spurring the development of new commercial and residential construction in a currently under-developed neighborhood.
