Access and Development The Lower East River has been at the center of the New York City’s development and increased public waterfront access for decades. From the development of Brooklyn Bridge Park to the Seaport District, to creating a new type of industrial campus at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and rethinking the East River Park Greenway, the Lower East River has been the focus of experimentation in development and innovative designs.
This diverse panel of “East River experts” will include designers, developers, and community representatives who will present their experiences and conflicting views on access and development along the Lower East River. After the panel presents, attendees will break into small roundtable discussions, where they will have the opportunity to voice their own experiences and views, developing a vision for the future of the Lower East River.

The Future of the NYC Waterfront – Program Series This is the first program in a series of forums on The Future of the NYC Waterfront planned through 2020 to conduct outreach, intending to inform the NYC Comprehensive Waterfront Plan: Vision 2030 through the Waterfront Management Advisory Board. Through a partnership between AIANY Planning and Urban Design, Committee on the Environment, Design for Risk and Reconstruction, and Transportation and Infrastructure committees, this Waterfront Taskforce Initiative is critical to providing a platform for architects and design experts in New York City to express their points of view and experience from work on the city’s waterfront.
As a reminder, AIA National policy requires participants to attend the entire educational portion of an event to receive continuing education credits. We encourage all participants to arrive on time to comply with this policy.
