Break Ground on New Governors Island Park by West 8
July 12, 2012

Governors Island Park New York West 8Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced the groundbreaking of Phase 1 of the Governors Island Park and Public Spaces, designed by West 8. The Mayor’s press conference also coincided with the official opening of the Island’s 2012 summer season and the completed renovation of Castle Williams Fort. The plan for the first phase was delivered in February and is now officially under construction, set for completion in the fall of 2013.
Areas currently under construction are Liggett Terrace, Hammock Grove, the Play Lawns, Soissons Landing and historic areas on the North Island such as the Parade Ground and South Battery. In its design, the park fully celebrates the ecology, history, culture, and the magnificent beauty of the New York harbor, connecting New York’s City to its waterfront. In addition to gardens, woodlands, and bikeways, West 8 has developed custom lighting, seating and signage. West 8 is also responsible for the Park and Public Space Master Plan, which lays out the plans for future phases such as Wetland Gardens, Hills, and a Great Promenade.
