Hudson Arts Building

Located at 220 Eleventh Avenue, the 150,000 SF, 10-story Hudson Arts Building is a sustainable, energy efficient, commercial building spanning a full city block in Chelsea. The facility envelops a ventilation building and shaft serving the nearby MTA No. 7 Line subway, and is supported by foundations shared with the MTA structure in addition to independent foundations within the cellar area. Langan provided site design and right-of-way improvements, worked with city agencies to obtain approvals for site/civil-related items, and prepared a geotechnical engineering study and site specific seismic study. We also conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and remedial investigation, and performed a field investigation with soil borings, groundwater sampling, and soil vapor testing. We will provide environmental and geotechnical oversight during excavation and foundation construction.
