In the 1990s, DGA collaborated with the joint venture team led by landscape architects Signe Nielsen Associates and Quennell Rothschild to develop a comprehensive master plan that later guided the ultimate design and construction of Hudson River Park, a 550-acre, 4.5-mile-long park along Manhattan’s west side waterfront (parallel to Route 9A).
The Park’s conceptual plan included an esplanade with continuous access to the water’s edge; 13 public piers; park upland; sports/ recreation areas; art/performance spaces; and ecology/history educational areas. Our efforts also included the creation of comprehensive lighting design criteria, and development of a new family of signature light pole standards for the park.
Subsequently, DGA designed Segment 4 of the new Hudson River Park with Abel Bainnson Butz. This effort addressed a 3,300 ft. waterfront covering more than 9 acres parallel to Greenwich Village.
