The $13M streetscape improvement project is the culmination of our ambitious 10-year Master Plan to transform Hudson Square into a beautiful, tree-lined boulevard with lush plantings throughout.
The renovations create a new Hudson Street between Canal and Houston Streets, including 2,000+ square feet for sidewalk cafe space with widened sidewalks that allow businesses plenty of outdoor seating while pedestrians can easily move by.
There are parking protected bike lanes, more bike parking spots, 8,000+ square feet of newly planted unique parklike spaces as well as modern benches that provide approximately 170 additional seats.
A partnership among Hudson Square BID, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), and New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), the project was the First public-private capital improvement project in New York City to use the Design-Build process. It was completed on-time and on budget (despite temporary COVID-19 delays).
