11. The New Whitney Museum

OHNY Hudson River Architectural Tour-NYC new Whitney Museum

Another major architectural project set to open in 2015 along the Hudson is the future site of the Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District. The new Whitney was designed by Renzo Piano to cooperate with the surroundings, including the southern end of the High Line, and enhance the Meatpacking District’s reputation for world class architecture. When it opens, it will be the largest column-free art space in New York City.
