A planned cultural center at Hudson Yards has won a $100,000 grant from
the National Endowment for the Arts, planting a spotlight on an as-yet
little-known project underway as part of the redevelopment of the
26-acre rail yards site on Manhattan’s West Side. The building, slated
for a 22,000-square-foot footprint on 30th Street between 11th and 12th
avenues, would include a five-story museum and rental exhibition space
called Culture Shed, according to the New York Times. The space is
being designed by Diller Scofidio & Renfro in partnership with the
Rockwell Group for the city’s Hudson Yards Development Corporation. One
source said that it would act as a time share for partnering cultural
institutions and would primarily focus on visual arts. The Related
Companies, which is developing Hudson Yards, said construction at the
site could begin as early as 2012 but is contingent upon finding anchor
tenants. [NYT]
