Construction has started on the West side of Hudson Street between King and Charlton and between Charlton and Vandam.
HSBID has entered into a partnership with the City to transform the stretch of Hudson Street from Canal to West Houston streets into a grand boulevard. The redesign will strengthen neighborhood connectivity, enhance traffic safety, and accentuate Hudson Street as a place to shop, socialize and relax through the installation of design elements including sidewalk extensions, a protected bicycle lane, continuous sidewalk plantings, and custom seating amenities.
Key design elements:
- Protected bike lane
- New benches
- Permeable pavers to maximize stormwater capture
- Additional planting areas filled with various trees, shrubs, and perennials
- Wider sidewalks
- New pedestrian ramps
- Additional bicycle parking
Spring: NYC Public Design Commission approved the Preliminary Design, which incorporates suggestions from the community input process that took place summer 2017.
Fall-Winter: Project team finalized the Preliminary Design for submission to the NYC Public Design Commission
Summer: HSBID held stakeholder meetings to discuss existing conditions and review proposed design concepts
