The Battery Coastal Resilience

The Battery Coastal Resilience

LMCR Presentation Cover


The Battery is part of the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) project, a multi-tiered approach to addressing climate vulnerability. The LMCR Battery project is being undertaken by NYCEDC in partnership with NYC Parks.

The Battery has a legacy of open space and a changing shoreline. Today, it continues to be a special place for New Yorkers and tourists, but the wharf is in need of repair and a changing climate demands that we design for the future. The LMCR Battery project will rebuild and elevate the wharf promenade in The Battery, staying true to the character and uses of the park, while protecting it from sea level rise in the year 2100. The project will address the following design goals:

  • Reconstruct deteriorating wharf
  • Protect The Battery from rising seas over the next 80 years
  • Accommodate passenger ferry uses
  • Preserve and enhance park character
  • Use Universal Design principles to create a welcoming and accessible esplanade
  • Protect the park’s historic resources
