Construction Update: Pier 35

Construction is ongoing at Pier 35, one of the final components of the East River Esplanade masterplan. Designed by SHoP Architects with Ken Smith Landscape Architects, the eco-park will anchor the northern boundary of the esplanade and feature a walkway with an inclined vine-covered wall that screens the adjacent Sanitation Department shed at Pier 36.
