Construction Update: West Thames Street Pedestrian Bridge

The steel structure for the West Thames Street Pedestrian Bridge has been lifted into place next to 50 West Street. This will be the permanent replacement for the SHoP-designed Rector Street Pedestrian Bridge that was erected as a temporary bridge after the attacks on September 11, 2001 . Designed by WXY Architecture and engineers at Weidlinger Associates, the bridge will span 230 feet over West Street to provide a direct pedestrian connection to Battery Park City from the Financial District.

Architect: WXY Architecture; Structural Engineer: Weidlinger Associates; Client: Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and the Battery Park City Authority; Location: Financial District, New York, NY; Completion: 2019.
