The Hudson River Park Trust unveiled detailed plans for the $210 million renovation of Pier 57, off West 15th Street, DNAinfo reported. The plan includes 375,000 square feet of space devoted to a two-floor public marketplace, a two-acre rooftop open space and a 115-slip marina designed by Handel Architects, Lot-Ek and others. The project is being developed by Youngwoo & Associates, which first earned the contract in July 2009 and hatched the current plan for the site a month later (note: correction appended). But before construction begins the trust is soliciting public feedback through July 29, prior to the mandatory Environmental Impact Statement. And according to the story, the public, led by the local community board, have one major concern: traffic. Though leaders of the trust said they were keeping a careful eye on traffic issues related to the project, the community fears the pier, slated for completion in 2015, will bring gridlock and danger to pedestrians.
