Getting on with Governors Island

Ren­der by West 8


The Gov­er­nors Island project is mov­ing ahead apace. Though cur­rently closed for the sea­son, the island will re-open to the pub­lic in May. Mean­while the design firm West 8 is hard at work final­iz­ing and imple­ment­ing their plans for the rede­vel­op­ment of the island into what promises to be one of the city’s most pop­u­lar urban spaces. Sched­uled to be com­pleted by Octo­ber 2013, the most recent updates to phase 1 of the project can be viewed and com­mented on.
