The New York Cruise Terminal provides multiple 1,000-foot-long berths suitable for servicing ocean liners and cruise vessels at a location on the Hudson River in midtown Manhattan. It is owned by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and is operated by Ports America.
Originally developed by the Port Authority of NY and NJ (PANYNJ) and subsequently transferred to the City of New York, MHA designed the reorganization of passenger, luggage and freight operations on the bi-level piers. A full scale operational and fire analysis was developed by MHA and coordinated with DOB, Homeland Security and FDNY to form a comprehensive fire/egress plan prepared specifically for cruise ship, exhibit and other accessory functions.
MHA provided architectural design services in conjunction with Thornton Tomasetti who provided structural and MEP design.
