Engineering Along
High Line NYC

After reclaiming a long-abandoned elevated railway on Manhattan’s West Side and transforming it into a high-design, 1.45-mile-long linear park, The High Line seamlessly blends the built environment with the natural world along its path and at every access point in NYC.

The High Line Monumental Stair Construction

30th Street West Monumental Stair

For its 30th Street West entrance, McLaren’s facade group provided design and engineering for a free-standing monumental staircase that melds steel tube stringers, laminated glass guardrails, and precast concrete treads with invisible connections between elements. To reinforce both its seamless aesthetic and structural integrity, loads, deflection, and vibration criteria were closely examined. The team concealed fixed connections between the custom rebar supported concrete treads and the steel stringers which were designed to act like a Vierendeel truss. Additionally, the glass guardrail connections were hidden using supports adhered by Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA). The fittings also allowed for flexibility and rotation of the glass, preventing the fragile material from becoming over-constrained by its attachments.

Getty 239 Tenth Avenue - Curtain Wall

West 24th Street

For The Getty McLaren provided peer review services for the installation of this customized curtain wall system. Located on West 24th Street, the 12-story, 6-unit mixed-use building faced several conditions that led to a specialized curtain wall design. Designed by Peter Marino, the building itself is an architectural sculpture. Full floor residential units, starting on the 5th floor, each feature their own unique layout as well as stunning views of the NYC High Line.

Zaha Hadid Steel Metal Panel Facade

520 W. 28th Street

Designed by world-renowned architect, Zaha Hadid, 520 W. 28th Street is an iconic 18-story luxury mixed-use building located along the High Line. The sleek metallic exterior of laser-cut stainless-steel trim features curvilinear geometric motifs. This unique appearance is created by a combination of distinctive stainless-steel fabrications, an aluminum-glazed curtainwall and storefront systems around the building. McLaren provided facade engineering services and design consultation for the Zaha Hadid development of the stainless-steel panels and connections to the building, as well as the design of the mullion connections. The development was her only residential building in New York and one of the last projects before her death.
