While costs still remain under wraps, NYC’s High Line park, James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio +Renfro have release renderings of a potential addition. We wouldn’t expect anything less than totally unique from the creators of High Line, as the elevated subway-track park has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in New York.
“The Spur,” as the design is to be named, will likely be situated at Rail yards on 10th Ave and 30th St. ArchDaily reports from “Friends of the High Line,” “Decades ago, this extension, called the 10th Avenue Spur, connected with the Morgan Processing and Distribution Center, allowing freight trains to carry mail and packages to and from the upper-floor loading docks of the post office building. Today, the Spur is the widest area on the High Line and occupies a strategic position in the neighborhood, where it will serve as a visual access point to Hudson Yards, and offer visitors a new and unique park experience.”
The finished Spur will offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape and lush vegetation to create a circular communal space for visitors to sit, and it’s set to be finished in 2014.
