FMCP Creative / Reconnect the Park

August 15, 2014

Application Deadline: September 15, 2014

Project Overview

Flushing Meadows Corona Park (FMCP) is an 897-acre site transformed from an ash dump for the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs into a public open space on a grand scale. An enduring legacy of FMCP’s origins as a World’s Fair site is that its entrances were originally designed for controlled access of ticket-holding Fairgoers, not for ease of access from neighboring communities. These problems are compounded by the lack of a proper wayfinding system that acknowledges how those communities enter, navigate, and use the Park today...

Design Guidelines for Neighborhood Retail

August 15, 2014

Application Deadline: September 15, 2014

Project Overview

Mayor de Blasio’s ‘Housing New York’: A Five-Borough, Ten-Year Housing Plan, calls for a holistic approach to community development that will support diverse, livable neighborhoods, including an increased emphasis on mixed-use development. Because  HPD’s core competency is housing, the agency needs to build capacity in developing non-residential, ground-floor spaces in mixed-use buildings. Ground-floor space that is not thoughtfully designed to be attractive and accommodating to a wide variety of tenants may be difficult to lease, resulting in underutilized or vacant space. Underutilized space represents a missed opportunity to provide needed amenities to residents and detracts from the quality of streetscapes.
