MNLA developed a comprehensive public realm master plan for Hudson Square, a once industrial neighborhood that is now an epicenter of New York City’s dynamic creative industries. The plan proposes far-reaching initiatives to create a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable network of spaces.

MNLA's award-winning Hudson Square Standard (HSS), which provides a signature sustainable streetscape, now graces the Hudson Square district. A major component of the firm's master plan for the district called for new tree planting in this formerly industrial neighborhood. Over the course of three years, 250 new trees have been planted and an equal number of existing trees retrofitted using the HSS sidewalk tree planting system. Combining structural soil, porous aggregate, permeable pavers, and distinctive tree guards, both the trees and the city benefit from captured stormwater, increased biomass, and real estate values.
