Take Me to the River: Concept Plan
Economic Development & Waterfront Access Study

Location: West Harlem, New York
Client: City of New York, Office of Manhattan Borough President
Project Partner: Donna Walcavage LA + UD

Access between the bustling Hamilton Heights neighborhood and Riverside Park is complicated by highways, railroad lines, and a steep hillside. In addition, existing access routes have security issues and are inaccessible to the disabled, seniors, and families with young children.

Nautilus worked with public agencies and local organizations to help improve public waterfront access, strengthen upland connections, add recreational and cultural activities, and improve environmental quality throughout the area. After developing consensus around a Concept Plan and set of economic development initiatives, we also provided an implementation strategy including funding sources and construction phasing plans.

Nautilus also worked on:

  1. Take Me to the River: Transportation Plan
  2. Take Me to the River: Streetscape Guidelines
  3. Take Me to the River: Cultural Plan
