High Line Timber Pedestrian Bridge

The conversion of an abandoned set of elevated rail tracks into the High Line has created one of New York’s most celebrated public spaces.

NEW YORK, NY

A new connector will allow pedestrians to access Moynihan Train Hall from the existing park, with an iconic timber truss pedestrian bridge connecting 30th Street to the Manhattan West platform.

Entuitive was retained by Brookfield, one of the developers in cooperation with the Empire State Development Corporation and Friends of the High Line, to provide specialty mass timber consulting throughout the project.

Our services include procurement assistance, advice on durability and connection detailing strategies for a structure permanently exposed to the weather, building code interpretation, shop drawing review, and field review during construction.
