A “Smart Landscape” concept that simultaneously activates the site with new recreational programs and strengthens its ecology.

Archi-Tectonics is transforming a previously industrial site along New Rochelle’s waterfront into a signature public space and wetlands conservancy that improves storm-water retention and promotes alternative energy use. The design remakes the waterfront into a social landscape that extends into the nearby city blocks, introducing vertical gardens and green roofs that create a network of green space anchored by the wetlands.

The introduction of a new boardwalk joins the waterfront with its new hotel to Main Street, where a historic armory building is being restored. The boardwalk occasionally widens to create platforms with steps along the waterfront, providing a viewing pier, an outdoor theatre, and a kayak landing. Along Main Street are new housing units and retail stores, helping activate this previously overlooked district and spur growth for locally owned small businesses.
