About this Project
New York Penn Station, the Hudson River, Amtrak and the High Line are a few of the landmarks next to and below the Hudson Yards East development on the west side of New York City, Sherwood’s largest project involvement on the East Coast. Construction is now complete on one of the largest private developments in Manhattan, including numerous skyscrapers and over 7-acres of new public open space. Civil engineering for the open space element was our focus, supporting the landscape architecture team to provide grading, stormwater management and water reuse engineering that enhances the landscape vision for the space. At the same time, we carefully navigated the various constraints associated with building over an existing 40-track rail yard and ensuring that the stormwater system above does not impact the operations of the trains or the rail workers during and after construction.
