Planning & Design Project Manager

New York, United States


Owned by the City of New York, the High Line is programmed, maintained, and operated by Friends of the High Line, in partnership with NYC Parks. We raise nearly 100% of the High Line’s annual budget.

Through excellence in operations, stewardship, innovative programming, and world-class design, we seek to engage the vibrant and diverse community on and around the High Line, and to raise the essential private funding to help complete the High Line’s construction and create an endowment for its future operations.

Job description

The planning and design project manager is responsible for supporting and overseeing capital repair and retrofit projects at the High Line park and headquarters. Projects require short- and long-term planning, and coordination with internal High Line departments to ensure minimal impact to operations, programming, and public access to the High Line. In addition to internal coordination, the project manager works with external contractors and NYC Parks and other city agencies, as needed. This position also acts as a liaison with adjacent construction projects as they impact the park.

This is an full-time, year-round, exempt position that reports to the senior project manager and who works collaboratively with the Operations department in fulfillment of projects.
