W Architecture, NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, and Councilmember Daniel Dromm recently held an onsite kick-off meeting for a redesign of CC Moore Homestead Park in Queens. Councilmember Dromm began the meeting with welcoming remarks and stressed the importance of the park as a community asset. Historically, the site was a bucolic setting and home to professor and poet Clement Clark Moore. The park is now highly activated but needs some improvements. We are excited to continue working in this vibrant neighborhood!

W visited RAD Furniture's shop last week to test out a bench prototype for our Regeneron project in Tarrytown, NY. The platform benches will be in the plaza area that is being built as part of Regeneron's new 229,000 sf corporate headquarters and research facility. The benches will be lit internally by LED strips and will glow at night.

Local St. Petersburg resident, Gary Harrington, wrote a letter to the editor of the Tampa Bay Times titled Best of Both Worlds supporting W's Blue Pier concept. Mr. Harrington wrote, "As a longtime visitor to Weedon Island Preserve, I am instantly a fan of the 'Blue Pier' concept of urban lagoons on existing land.Those who visit Weedon enjoy the quiet splendor and natural gifts of a pristine estuary so close to our city...Imagine a quiet Sunday morning kayak paddle among mangroves and critters - a stone's throw from our beautiful skyline and amenities of Beach Drive." Read the entire letter here. Thank you for the support, Mr. Harrington!

W's Blue Pier proposal for the St. Petersburg Pier has been chosen to advance to the next round of competition. Seven teams will advance to the next round to compete to re-envision the pier. W's Blue Pier transforms the entire pier into a lagoon park that can serve as a marine education center. There will be observation points along the pier approach, from the sloping lawn, and canopy at the pier head. Read the press release in the Tampa Bay Times here.
