On May 13, 2014, over 65 people joined the Partnership for a guided tour of the High Line Park, focusing on six ongoing or completed brownfield development sites along the park that are being remediated for reuse. The highlighted projects and speakers included:

Hudson Yards, a large mixed-use development at 30th Street (Jason Hayes, Langan)

507 West 28th Street, a residential development (Joe Good/Langan)

76 11th Avenue, a former MGP site (Mike Burke/Langan, Mike Perciballi/Posillico)

820 Washington Street, new location for the Whitney Museum (Axel Schwendt, AKRF)

The tour was led by Dan Walsh, Director of the NYC Office of Environmental Remediation (OER). Additional background was provided by Partnership Board member Gary Rozmus (GEI Consultants), who spoke about CSX’s decision process prior to allowing the defunct rail line to be used for recreational purposes.

The tour concluded at the Biergarten, at the Standard Hotel under the High Line. Based on the participants’ feedback, this is an event that will definitely be repeated!
