Emily Warren Roebling Plaza at Brooklyn Bridge Park
Manhattan, NY United States | 2021
Hudson Park and Boulevard PHASE 2-BLOCK 4 is the centerpiece of a neighborhood in midtown Manhattan's far west side. This portion of the project was started in 2020 and completed in 2021.
In approaching the design of this public space, the Architect sought to provide the kind of daily-use city/park interface seen in some of New York City's most successful urban spaces, making the park a comfortable, welcoming, destination.
Having previously completed several portions of the award-winning Brooklyn Bridge Park, as well as previous segments of this project, the architect was well familiar with the issues facing the project, specifically corrosion protection & aesthetics. Accordingly, a duplex system of hot-dip galvanizing with a coating system was specified. The architect's strong commitment to the environment influenced both the decision to use hot-dip galvanizing for its recognized environmental benefits along with powder coating, for its discharge of virtually zero harmful VOCs into our atmosphere.
