West Harlem Piers Park, completed in 2008, is featured on Landezine. W transformed a parking lot on the waterfront into a 105,526 sf park while working closely with the residents of Harlem. The space was expanded with two piers that stretch into the Hudson River, echoing land formation patterns. The park reconnects the neighborhood to the water and incorporates native plants, reused granite, and reef balls as design elements.

Our first community meeting for the 37th Road Plaza in Jackson Heights, Queens was a success! Over 100 community members attended the workshop to discuss ideas and a vision for the plaza. The meeting was kicked off by Councilman Daniel Dromm, the DOT, and the many community organizations that have supported and maintained the plaza since its inception. W will be working with the DDC to design the permanent plaza.
