Updated Designs For Long-Awaited Astor Place Revamp



Quote:
The signs went up a few weeks ago, and the official press release hit our inbox today—the extreme makeover of Astor Place and Cooper Square is ON. The designs, created by WXY Architecture, have been slightly updated since they were revealed in 2011, but the plan remains the same: enlarge Cooper Park, streamline the street grid, and create new permanent pedestrian plazas. The work will cost $16 million, and it's starting at East 4th Street, where new drainage catch basins, curbs, and sidewalks are being constructed. From there, work will progress north to create the new Village Plaza along Cooper Square between 5th and 6th Streets, with construction starting later this year. At the same time, Cooper Triangle Park will be revamped with new seating, more plantings, and upgraded lighting, and the surrounding sidewalks will be widened.

Work begins 2014 and should be complete by 2015.
