LOT-EK, West 8, and Beyer Blinder Belle have been selected as the design team for Pier 57 at West 15th Street and the Hudson River as part of the development group lead by New York-based real estate developer YoungWoo & Associates (YWA). YWA was awarded the project by the Hudson River Park Trust on July 30, 2009.
The 375,000 square foot vacant, former passenger ship terminal will be transformed into a world-class cultural center, small business incubator, and public park, including a dramatic rooftop venue for the Tribeca Film Festival. The plan builds on the successes of the adjacent High Line park, West Chelsea arts district, Meatpacking entertainment and retail district, and Hudson River Park itself. It will create more than a third of a mile of new public waterfront access around the pier’s perimeter.
