The New Willliamsburg Waterfront

Tuesday, Apr 22, 2008

The New Williamsburg Waterfront is the third event in The Skyscraper Museum’s Winter/Spring lecture series, Re:NY│Recycle, Retrofit, Reinvent the City. Recognizing the need for a great majority of New York’s buildings to be modernized, but not replaced, the Museum will examine “greening” the city by spotlighting a range of innovative projects that feature landmark preservation, adaptive re-use, reinvented industrial sites, and sustainable development.

This richly historic, once-thriving industrial zone is witnessing a rapid transformation as a burgeoning residential neighborhood. New condominium developments, large and small, such as The Edge, Northside Piers and Palmer’s Dock, and Schaefer Landing, along with adaptive reuse of landmark structures such as the Austin Nichols warehouse, offer an impressive range of goals of sustainable urbanism: brownfield reclamation, public parks and waterfront access, a percentage of affordable housing, and LEED-certified design and construction.

The presentations and panel will feature the developers of the major residential developments and public officials who conceived and crafter the rezoning effort in a discussion of what is going right and where there is room for improvement.
