AECOM is leading a multi-disciplinary team that unites landscape architecture, planning policy, urban design, architecture and engineering driven by a shared goal to improve the physical, social and economic resiliency of Lower Manhattan.
The Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) Project is an integrated coastal protection initiative aimed at reducing flood risk due to coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan. The 3.5-mile-long project extends from the northern portion of Battery Park City to the Two Bridges neighborhood. In concert with infrastructure resilience measures, the LMCR Project aims to improve access to the waterfront and augment green space in the neighborhoods it will traverse. The LMCR Project builds upon several years of community planning efforts to improve the waterfront. Residents provide critical input to shape the project through workshops, focus groups and numerous other engagement activities, confirming a strong desire for more green space, open space and recreation areas.
