The city isn’t wasting any time in its bid to acquire the northern third of the High Line, the last section of the railroad slated to become part of the elevated park. Last week, less than a year after the first section of the park opened to the public, the Department of City Planning began its uniform land use review procedure, a seven-month process during which the city will negotiate with CSX, the railroad company that still owns the half-mile stretch of Land Above West 30th Street that the completed High Line is supposed to include. The lot is comprised of the land around the rail yards from 30th Street to 12th Avenue and north to 34th Street and 11th Avenue, and the Related Companies, the High Line’s developer, has already said it will preserve the structure there. The first third of the High Line park, on city-owned land between Gansevoort and West 20th streets, opened to the public last year. The middle third is under construction. [The Villager]
