Manhattan's Plan for the Future (02:01)


The area of New York City is densely populated. It needs renovations that do not disrupt commuters.

One Vanderbilt: Midtown Manhattan (06:08)

The building will be across the street from Grand Central Station, with the bottom floors being owned by the city. The architects are using new technologies to reduce negative impacts of outdated city planning.

Hudson Yards: Westside Manhattan (11:08)

The new business center along the Hudson River will have 13 skyscrapers by 2025. All the buildings are mixed-use. The center was built without displacing anyone and 30% of the housing is affordable.

The High Line: Westside Manhattan (05:40)

The project brings green space and a cultural center to the densely populated area. The value of the properties alongside it increased.

The Whitney Museum: Meatpacking District (06:41)

The building was designed with the arts connection to the city in mind. The building is on stilts and just off the High Line making it accessible to more visitors.

Medical School: Columbia University (03:34)

The building was designed to fit into a small plot of land. Its unique design makes it feel open and interconnected.

Manhattanville Campus: Columbia University (08:12)

The new campus is being built on a former industrial site. The campus is integrated with the surrounding community.
