Construction Project Areas for East Side Coastal Resiliency

Map of three main Project Areas for ESCR construction

Construction work for ESCR is divided into four main Project Areas

  • The Early Package (EP) includes the relocation of the Lower East Side Ecology Center's Community Compost operations, the installation of a temporary open space lawn, and the transplanting of some trees from East River Park to areas within the community.
  • Project Area 1 (PA1) is concentrated in Manhattan's Lower East Side (LES) between Montgomery St. and East 15th St., including the East River Park.
  • Project Area 2 (PA2) encompasses work between East 15th St. and East 25th St. including Asser Levy Playground, Stuyvesant Cove Park, Murphy Brothers Playground, as well as local streets around the Con Edison facility.
  • Parallel Conveyance (PC) work is made up of inland drainage infrastructure improvements within the overall ESCR project footprint. This work will occur on local streets between Montgomery St. and East 23rd St.

Work in Project Area 2 at Asser Levy Park and around the Solar One facility (Stuyvesant Cove Park north) began in November 2020.
