New NYC Neighborhood Will Be Built Over Active Train Tracks [Video]
The Hudson Yards project will add 5,000 new housing units as an extension to the High Line.
In New York City, where unused space is hard to come by, construction has begun on a brand-new neighborhood. Aesthetically a continuation of the much-praised High Line elevated park, the Hudson Yards project will be built on platforms over active rail tracks. It will be a place where architects will have free reign, as many of the restrictions on building height and appearance will be absent.
