The High Line

The project involved the transformation of an abandoned, elevated railroad structure into a popular public park. Stretching 1.5 miles on Manhattan's west side, the park helped spur residential and commercial development in the West Chelsea neighborhood and is a popular tourist attraction. Langan's site/civil group assisted with the design and permitting of three plazas associated with the High Line, and obtained DEP drainage plan permits to connect drains for the project areas and at street level for the length of the structure. Our environmental team provided remediation design and oversight for the section of the park between West 17th Street and West 18th Street.
