Thomas Heatherwick’s 2.4-acre Chelsea park at Pier 55, aka Little Island, continues to take shape above the Hudson River. More of the funnel-shaped concrete pots have been installed on the western end of the project, which reaches 62 feet high at its peak. Large black sheets are spread out across the tops of the sloped surfaces, most likely indicating that a concrete pour recently occurred. Work is being managed by the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT), and MNLA is designing the landscaping.
