Pier 57

New York, NY

!melk has designed a new addition to the network of waterfront public spaces that comprises the Hudson River Park. Historic Pier 57 includes Anthony Bourdain’s curated food market, an office space for Google, a public esplanade, and a 2.5-acre “Sky Park” situated on the roof of the iconic pier structure.

As such, a formerly derelict structure is transformed into a center for entertainment, commerce, and the arts. The overall design complements the vibrant character of the neighborhood (The Meat Packing District), and celebrates the Pier’s post-industrial setting. The Sky Park is visible from afar and offers spectacular views back to the city as well as across the Hudson River. It is a multi-functional public destination with picnic lawns, viewing decks, and a restaurant. An open-air amphitheater doubles as the main seating area for summertime events and film screenings hosted by Tribeca Film Festival.
