Game II: Re-Zoning Long Island City

Project Description

Our team took the position of the Partnership for New York City, a pro-development business association, to propose a new central business district for Long Island City, Queens, New York. A future transit hub at Sunnyside Rail Yard generates and sustains the new center, with street improvements along the boulevard linking to the East River waterfront and tidal basin. Along the water, a new light rail line and expanded ferry service connect to surrounding boroughs. Long Island City: a basin, a boulevard, and a business district at the center of a new New York.
