Newton Creek Landing and Park

The design of this project aims to weave the neighborhood street grid through the development to ensure easy access to the proposed waterfront park and promenade. The development encompasses eight stand-alone buildings, with two residential towers sited along the site’s eastern edge with a shared platform. The building program is as follows: Residential: 50%; Office: 20%; Retail: 10%; Entertainment/recreation: 20%. Parking structures are located underground on the south side of the lot. The real focal point of the site is its expansive waterfront park, stretching along the entirety of its adjacent edge with Newtown Creek, connecting the community seamlessly with the water edge. The continuous nature of the park is also meant to promote connectivity across the site and between two main points of interest in the neighborhood with Kingsland Nature Walk at the site’s eastern edge and the pedestrian connection to the Pulaski Bridge to the west. The park was designed to consider the flood-prone nature of the site and employs a number of resilient strategies to ensure its viability in the face of climate change impacts.
