The Hudson River Park Segments 6 and 7 project involved reconstruction of three piers, new construction of boathouses, concession kiosks, shade and other support structures, and restoration of a historic bulkhead. Many of these structures include sustainable design features.
The roof structure on the boathouses consist of 3” deep steel roof deck supported by steel trusses with proper bracing members and steel tubular beams at the perimeter, providing a hyperbolic shaped roof. Wind lateral forces will be taken by diagonal bracings. The roof structure is supported by square steel tubular columns which are supported on piles and structural slabs.
This redevelopment stretches over 2 miles long, along the Hudson River. $85 million construction cost.
