Harlem River Promenade

At the Harlem River Promenade, one of the few parcels of land along the Harlem River that has actual river access, Sherwood was selected with a group of designers to perform a feasibility study and determine alternatives for development of a public program. The design process included multiple meetings with a steering committee composed of representatives of local government, community groups and public agencies, as well as multiple public meetings to present design concepts and receive feedback from the community. Sherwood was responsible for the infrastructure planning, which entailed a detailed existing conditions study and identification of infrastructure implications of alternative concepts throughout the design process, as well as conceptual design of stormwater management on site.
