The High Line

New York, NY

James Corner Field Operations

ASLA Honor Award

The High Line creates a much-loved greenbelt park along an abandoned 1.5-mile section of a former elevated freight railroad along the lower west side of Manhattan. This project created a variety of ecological environments as well as public amenities on, effectively, a rooftop condition. Pine & Swallow developed soil and drainage strategies to support the array of planting conditions, prepared soil profiles and specifications, reviewed soil submittals, and monitored soil blending and placement during construction.
