More on Phase Two / Field Operations + DS+R

The Spur

A few days ago, we shared some information about the second segment of Field Operations and DS+R’s High Line, including construction shots to show the progress being made. Today, we share renderings from the firms which illustrate some of the cool features we can look forward to seeing.  The second phase will include a “spur” – a framed space recalling the historical billboards that once attached to the railway, a “floating platform” which rests above the exposed girders, “Chelsea Thicket” – a dense stretch of trees and shrubs, a “flyover” where the walkway rises into the canopy of sumac trees, and of course, a grand lawn for lounging.

Take a look at the renderings after the break, and we’ve also included a video of the whole project to see how the pieces will come together.

    I think the High Line is the most powerful and regenerating project in New York City. I admire the courage to achieve this piece of landart in the heart of the ‘jungle glass’.

    I too have always wanted to sit at a freeway overpass and have a pleasant conversation or just read the newspaper…. do they still make newspapers?

    The Flyover looks like it would be a cool spatial experience. Great job Field Operations and team!
