June 25, 2008 06:15PM

New renderings of the High Line were unveiled by the city today, showing new features, notably a sun deck with half an inch of running water. The renderings are the first to be released since the originals came out back in 2005. The $170 million park’s first phase, which runs from Gansevoort Street to 20th Street, is set to open by the end of this year. The second phase, which runs from 20th Street and to 30th Street, is slated to open by the end of 2009. Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro were the design team selected for the project after an international competition. The project, which will redevelop abandoned elevated railroad structures, has accelerated a residential boom on the far West Side. TRD
