Case Study

Hudson River Park


Sive, Paget & Riesel represented the Hudson River Park Trust (and predecessor entities) in connection with the environmental review conducted in connection with the development of the Hudson River Park in Manhattan. SPR served as environmental counsel in connection with the Environmental Impact Statement required for the Park, and worked with State and local agencies in connection with the development of this exciting new park along the Hudson River waterfront.

The firm continues to serve as counsel to the Hudson River Park Trust as it implements its overall plan for the park. In a recent litigation, Sane Energy Project v. Hudson River Park Trust (New York County Supreme Court), SPR obtained dismissal, on federal preemption grounds, of SEQRA challenge to HRPT’s lease allowing the installation of a natural gas pipeline under the Park.
