Project Scope

In the 1990s, DGA collaborated with the joint venture team led by landscape architects Quennell Rothschild and Mathews Nielsen 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; various sports/recreation areas; art/performance spaces; and ecology/history educational areas. Our scope of work included the development of design and detailing of a new family of light pole standards for the park (TBTA pole). Our efforts also included the creation of lighting design criteria and computer generated lighting analyses. As a related subsequent effort, 2003 saw DGA's completion of a 6-year, $46 million effort to develop the first portion (Segment 4) of the new Hudson River Park with ABB Landscape Architects. This effort addressed a 3,300 ft. exposure of waterfront covering more than 9 acres parallel to Greenwich Village.
