The Hudson River Park extends along Manhattan’s West Side Highway and waterfront from 59th Street to Chambers Street, a stretch of approximately five miles along the river encompassing 550-acres. The Park includes a waterfront esplanade running its length providing views of the Hudson River, paralleled by four miles of tree-shaded lawns, gardens, tennis courts and other facilities for active recreation. In addition, several old maritime piers are being reconstructed as public park spaces. Pine & Swallow was responsible for preparation of a Master Soils Specification for the various individual park areas, including material descriptions, in-place and laboratory testing procedures, and material placement operations. Pine & Swallow was also responsible for developing strategies for construction on piers as well as varied conditions along the waterfront and provided submittal review.
