World-renowned architects Santiago Calatrava and Frank Gehry are lined up to design residential towers at the second phase of Hudson Yards.

The Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group tapped the two designers as they get ready to shift their focus to the mostly-residential second phase of the megaproject, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Gehry recently said the High Line, which wraps around the western rail yards where most of the residential buildings will rise, is “a rusty rail bridge and they put some plants on it.”
