Battery Park City Residential Tower Design


with William McDonough + Partners

Real estate firm Hines invited William McDonough + Partners to lead this competition submission. Allison Ewing was Partner-in-Charge of the large design team short-listed for the project to be located in lower Manhattan.

The proposal seeks to render visible the ambitious environmental agenda (achieving LEED gold certification); photovoltaic panels at the skyline create a signature expression, green roof gardens provide places of repose, and a courtyard with an integrated rain garden are but some of the features that enrich the residents’ lifestyle while highlighting the sustainable practices at play. In addition to apartments, the building incorporates a library and retail.
