Hudson Square is an approximately 30-block district on Manhattan’s West Side formerly known as the “Printing District.” Its connection to the area’s cultural and ecological history and to the Hudson River that borders it was a critical component of this invited competition proposal. As a catalyst that can link the area with year-round activities and programs along Hudson River Park and
Pier 40, the link to the water can establish Hudson Square’s presence as a unique urban/ecological destination. Hudson Square Prints Green! proposed transforming the district’s waterfront into a thriving environment for people and wildlife alike—one that respects the region’s history as both an active printing hub and a former wetlands once covered with creeks and marshes.
