Iconic Radio City Music Hall to get rooftop garden and 'skybridge'

Iconic Radio City Music Hall will feature roof garden
Plans will link the park to the Rockefeller Center via a pedestrian bridge
Covering around 24,000sq ft, the rooftop park won't be visible to the streets below
Park will have paved and landscaped areas, pathways, pavilions, and relaxation areas

The iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York will soon feature an innovative, landscaped rooftop park, after proposals were approved by the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The plans, by G3 Architecture Interiors Planning, Tishman Speyer and HMWhite, will see a pedestrian bridge being built to connect the Rockefeller Center – which houses the Radio City venue – to a newly established roof garden.

Covering around 24,000sq ft, the rooftop park won't be visible to the streets below and will have paved and landscaped areas, pathways, pavilions, and relaxation areas.

To be called Radio Park, the rooftop project reflects the original architectural designs for the Rockefeller Center, which include five roof gardens perched atop the seventh floor of the building constructed between 1933 and 1936.

Located within the Rockefeller Center complex, Radio City Music Hall first launched in 1932 and was designed by Associated Architects and Donald Deskey.
