Well, New Yorkers won’t have to travel to The Hampton’s for a beachside experience much longer. Today we get a look at a 5.5-acre park dubbed Gansevoort Peninsula Park. The park will feature Manhattan’s first public beach to Pier 52 between Gansevoort and Little West 12th streets. But, it’s not all about the beach. The $70 million project is also slated to provide kayak access, a sports field, salt marsh, dog run, and picnic area.
If that wasn’t enough, the Whitney Museum of American Art is slated to add a public art project by David Hammons, which is said to be the country’s largest upon completion. The Gansevoort Peninsula Park was designed by James Corner Field Operations while sponsored by the Hudson River Park Trust.
Construction is set to start this spring, and the space is set to open in 2023. Take a closer look at the park through the renderings and learn more from the Hudson River Park Trust while you’re at it. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for much more stunning and unique design coming soon.
