North Battery Park City Resiliency Project

With construction scheduled to begin in 2020 and end in 2023,  Battery Park City  is committed to constructing a a perimeter storm and flood protection system on its northern boundary. This structure will decrease vulnerability from storm inundation and flooding.

South Battery Park City Resiliency Project

With construction scheduled to begin in 2019 and end in 2022,  Battery Park City  is committed to constructing a a perimeter storm and flood protection system on its southern boundary. This structure will decrease vulnerability from storm inundation and flooding.

Ballfield & Community Center Resiliency Project

The Battery Park City Ballfields are located at a geographical low point making them susceptible to flooding, as experienced during Sandy . To avoid future damage and ensure that both the ballfield and community center remain fully operational all year round, flood protection systems will be implemented constructed. The anticipated completion of this project is late 2020.

North Esplanade Restoration Project

Construction began in 2016 on the North Esplanade Restoration Project to restore certain portions of the Esplanade platform, granite slabs, pile caps, timber piles and rip rap. The project was completed in spring 2017.

Rockefeller Park Playground Restoration

The design of the restoration of the Rockefeller Park Playground was commenced and completed in 2017. It is expected that the construction of the project will commence and be completed in 2019.

Tribeca Pedestrian Bridge Repainting

An updated design for the repainting of the Tribeca Pedestrian Bridge was commenced and completed in 2017. It is expected that the painting project will be completed in 2018.

South Cove Jetty Decking Replacement and Bracing Repair

The South Cove (the “Cove”) is a nationally significant waterfront art installation located in the southern neighborhood of Battery Park City at the Waterfront Esplanade between First Place and Third Place that includes a curved, wooden jetty that extends into the water. Due to its location, repairs and maintenance to preserve this structure are scheduled to be completed in 2019.

West Thames Pedestrian Bridge

The West Thames Pedestrian Bridge links the south neighborhood of Battery Park City to the east side of West Street, and provide residents of and  visitors to Battery Park City, a safer means  of crossing the West Side Highway. This project is being constructed by New York City Economic Development Corporation, with a funding contribution by Battery Park City, and is scheduled to be completed by 2019.

Pile Remediation Project

The Battery Park City Esplanade is supported by 3121 concrete piles. To lengthen the structural life of these piles, in 2007 BPCA created the Pile Remediation Project through which each pile is jacketed with fiber glass, and then encased within an epoxy filled FRP(fiberglass reinforced plastic) pile jacket to protect them and prevent the possibility for further degradation or corrosion. The final phases of this project are scheduled to completed by 2021.
