Completed in May 2009, Harlem River Park is a beautiful, waterfront addition to the Upper West Side.
In May 2009, NYCEDC completed construction on the final phase of the Harlem River Park, a new esplanade stretching from 135th Street to 145th Street in East Harlem for all to enjoy.
This $7.5 million project included 54,000 square feet of new park space. Working with the City’s Department of Parks and Recreation and the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, we designed a new bulkhead to protect the shoreline, support upland park activities, and create an eco-friendly area that will allow for tidal plantings and marine growth.
The entire park project was completed on-time and $250,000 under budget.
