MNLA Principal Signe Nielsen was the joint venture partner on the team that prepared a comprehensive master plan and design guidelines for the 550-acre Hudson River Park. This plan is premised on reclaiming the waterfront for public benefit. More than two decades since the plan was completed, the park is a valuable resource to area residents and visitors.

The Tribeca section of Hudson River Park reconnects urban residents with their shoreline, mighty river, the horizon, sunsets, seasonal changes, and reemerging habitats. By boat, bike or on foot, New Yorkers have reclaimed a significant piece of abandoned waterfront as a destination to enjoy.

This $170M segment is three-quarters of a mile long and includes 14 acres of open space and new buildings. Active and passive recreational opportunities abound alongside park-wide signature features of the continuous waterfront promenade. The most notable destination is the nature walk, an undulating boardwalk that meanders through a native shoreline grassland dotted with red cedars.

Pier 25, a 1,000-foot-long, 3.2-acre pier features sand volleyball, mini-golf, children’s play areas, a multi-purpose field, and a sunset deck that collectively combine surprise and artistry, endearing the pier to the community and all who visit.

The Tribeca Section successfully awakens people’s senses through the smell of daylilies, the sound of waves, the sight of the sunset, the touch of grass plumes, and the taste of rain.
