Construction has started on the West side of Hudson Street between King and Charlton and between Charlton and Vandam.
*The final amenities (plantings and benches) will be completed in spring 2021.
Winter of 2020 we began our first phase of construction on the west side of Hudson Street from King-Charlton Streets. After a brief delay due to the pandemic, work resumed and in December of 2020 these blocks were opened to the public. A few of the amenities including benches and plantings will be completed in the spring of 2021.
The Hudson Street project is a partnership between the Hudson Square BID and the City, whose goal is 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
