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.
