Tour: Hunters Point South Phase 2
Join Thomas Balsley, FASLA and Marion Weiss, FAIA on a personal tour of the recently opened Hunter’s Point South Phase 2. They will discuss how this extraordinary new 11 acre park has become a design model for urban waterfront landscape infrastructure and resiliency. Explore NYC’s newest island sanctuary, the cantilevered overlook hovering above the tidal marsh and trail below, shaded promontory with “family rafts”, and more. The park was a design collaboration between SWA/BALSLEY and WEISS/MANFREDI with ARUP as the prime consultant and infrastructure designer.
