Complementary Initiatives

The ESCR Project is the first step in the City's plan for a larger coastal protection system in Lower Manhattan. While the ESCR Project is being designed as a stand-alone "compartment" to reduce flood risk between East 25th Street and Montgomery Street, it will tie-in with future efforts and complementary initiatives in Lower Manhattan. These Include:

  • Lower Manhattan Comprehensive Plan
  • Pier 42 park
  • Lower East Side Ecology Center
  • Resilient Neighborhoods Study
  • Con Edison Resiliency
  • Solar Two
  • Hospital Row Investments
  • NYCHA Resiliency
