Renderings Revealed: Manhattan’s First Public Beach

Last week, renderings were revealed for Manhattan’s first future public beach – known as Gansevoort Peninsula (heard through 6 Square Feet). The public site will be located on the western side of Little West 12th Street.

While the renderings represent a preliminary concept, features are expected to include a sanded beach area, kayaking, a sports field, salt marsh, and plenty of lounging areas.

James Corner Field Operations has been hired to design the outdoor space; construction is expected to begin in 2020 and be completed by 2022.

It’s unlikely that you’ll actually be able to swim, but you’ll get to lounge by the Hudson River.

Once complete, the space will be the largest green space in Hudson River Park.
