Lower Manhattan's Greenwich Green proposal is back in the spotlight as one of the master planners on the project, architect Hugh Hardy, is sowing his urban planning vision (new kinds of public space for walking!) all around the town lately. Also known as Greenwich Street South, it calls for five residential towers to help pay for the construction of a deck over the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel entrance and the creation of a park on top (above) as well as a curving bridge over West Street to the bottom of Battery Park City.
Meanwhile, two other downtown park projects got some love from the mayor's office earlier this month: a grand opening of West Street Promenade South and a groundbreaking for Tribeca's portion of Hudson River Park. Feeling green yet?
