Case study – stainless steel in New York’s Hudson Yards

The largest private development in US history, Hudson Yards boasts a modern sustainable design. Its prime location near the Hudson River in New York City comes at the price of exposure to both marine and de-icing salts. With corrosion resistance in mind, stainless steel emerges as an integral part of the mini-city. The 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station features stainless steel in many forms. From the trads and handrails of the main stairs to architectural features like the cladding of the tunnel, Type 316L stainless steel is omnipresent.
