Hunter’s Point South Achieves WEDG Certification

for excellence in waterfront design.

The Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines (WEDG) outline waterfront design best practices in an easy to digest format that make it a valuable tool for the client, stakeholders and design team to understand and replicate on future projects.

The park design team of Thomas Balsley Associates/Weiss Manfredi and ARUP, envisioned Hunter’s Point South Waterfront Park as an international model of urban ecology and a world laboratory for innovative sustainable thinking. The integrated design weaves together infrastructure, landscape, and architecture to transform this previously underutilized site into new ecological corridors that anticipate the inevitable patterns of flooding and rising water levels along the East River.
