Walkway Over the Hudson

Chazen developed a concept plan to revitalize the unattractive and inaccessible eastern entrance of the Walkway Over the Hudson as part of the Washington Street Gateway Improvement Project. Working with the nonprofit Walkway Over the Hudson organization, and with numerous project stakeholders through a public workshop process, Chazen’s designers were tasked with providing a vision for the new entrance to the world’s tallest pedestrian bridge. Key design elements included seating walls, a decorative sidewalk, educational signage, planter boxes, improved lighting and congregating space for group visitors.
