Longman Lindsey is the acoustical consultant for the new Hudson Yards Retail Podium, a 750,000 SF high-end glassy mall and open-air market located in Manhattan’s far West Side. The mixed-use megaproject includes retail stores, restaurants, atria, and cogen power plant and sits in between the final section of the High Line and the new extension of the 7 subway line.

We are providing acoustical studies and modeling of the monumental atria spaces so they can suitably host both retail and events. Our studies address the development’s acoustical challenges, including traffic, plaza/cultural shed special events, common area background music, luxury tenant requirements, food venues, multiple mechanical rooms, as well as 24/7 cogen power plant. The cogen plant, which will have the ability to serve the Hudson Yards complex, locates above premium retail space, a critical adjacency.

Our acoustical recommendations are providing guidelines to the design team on how to achieve acoustical goals through noise mitigation and engineering built into the retail core and shell and interior designs, as well as outdoor terrace and restaurant areas to minimize noise impact on neighboring residential buildings.
