In a New York State of Mind Part 2

Uber-hip architects, SHoP, and the Richard Rogers Partnership have completed the phase one conceptual design for a new east side waterfront. Architectural Record reports: ” The new park will stretch from Maiden Lane to Old Slip in Lower Manhattan, south of the Brooklyn Bridge. Short term work is expected to be complete in three to five years.” Long-term plans include 5 to 10 acres of new space built out over the water on caissons and piles.
