Hudson Yards Connection (HYC)

Hudson Yards Connection (HYC)

The design for HYC proposed a pedestrian path to connect Hudson Yards to the Moynihan Station on that not only re-valorized and re-animated the forgotten parts of the City but embraced the uniqueness of the existing infrastructures and captured the richness of the almost organic/symbiotic growth of a living city.

SYSTRA based our approach on the understanding that the city is a complex urban system, a rich fabric is with multiple layers/strata, each with potential for unique and wonderous experiences for the users waiting to be unlocked. The urban path engages in these experiences by way of a new pedestrian bridge extending from the highline that submerges into the Manhattan West development and through into the renovated train station.

HYC creates an inviting pedestrian path with parklike leisure areas, vegetated canopies and strategic look-out platforms high above the hustling city traffic below. The scheme also organizes new street-level transportation nodes, urban parks, public facilities, meeting /performance areas as well as shops and cafes to make a true destination for the user.
