Reconstruction of Astor Place: Street reconstruction and reconfiguration, includes the expansion of Cooper Park and creation of new pedestrian plaza. Currently in design phase and projected completion date of April 2015.
East River Waterfront/Esplanade Reconstruction: Ongoing work by the NYC Economic Development Corporation to construct the East River Waterfront Esplanade. The first phase of the ERWE opened to the public in Summer 2011. Phase III of the project extends from Pike Slip/Allen Street to Pier 35, just north of the Manhattan Bridge.
Pier 35/36 Work: The Esplanade just south of Pier 35 will provide nearly 1,000 linear feet of open space park. It will include the same design features and seating areas as the rest of the Esplanade, in addition to active recreational uses like basketball courts, a petanque/bocce court, and an exercise area. Structural reconstructive work at Pier 35 began in the first phase of the project and is expected to be completed in September 2013. Pier 35 will be redeveloped into a destination pier with landscaped open space and an innovative habitat restoration project, called the EcoPark.
Updates: Package 3 work is underway between Maiden Lane and Pier 35 (approximately at Jefferson Street). Substructure work on the pier itself was recently completed. The esplanade along and under the FDR Drive will get a makeover to match the waterfront areas further south -- with bocce, petanque, and basketball courts; an exercise area; and East River "lookouts" to open in late 2013. The originally planned water-main replacement along South Street, between Pike Slip and Pier 35, is now on hold with a new schedule yet to be announced.
Brooklyn Bridge Reconstruction: Ongoing work by the Department of Transportation to improve roadway access and safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Work will include sidewalk closures, traffic changes and other rebuilding efforts.
