Active Studies & Proposals:
The Special West Chelsea District Study for the Potential Expansion of the Special West Chelsea District
As part of a commitment made by Deputy Mayor Robert Steel to City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Manhattan Community Board 4 on October 25, 2012, the Department of City Planning has prepared a study to consider the potential expansion of the Special West Chelsea District. This report includes an analysis of existing conditions and draft recommendations, and will further inform consultation with the local community, elected officials, and private stakeholders on the potential for rezoning the study area.

East River Waterfront Study - Proposed Plaza at the historic Battery Maritime Building
East River Waterfront Study
This project - whose third phase is currently under construction - is a product of an ambitious planning and urban design study undertaken by the Department in 2004 that seeks to improve and reconnect Lower Manhattan’s diverse communities to a two-mile stretch of the East River waterfront. The project area extends from the Battery Maritime Building to Pier 35, and forms a link between the Financial District, the Civic Center, Chinatown, and Lower East Side. The first phase of the new esplanade opened to the public in July, 2011.
