Perkins+Will has been competitively awarded the opportunity as on-call advisers to New York Economic Development Corporation for Urban Design and Planning Services. Our services support NYCEDC’s mandate to make the City stronger in a regional, national and global context. NYCEDC is the City’s primary engine for economic development charged with
leveraging the City’s assets to drive real estate development, create jobs and improve quality of life.

This is our fourth consecutive 2-year term advising the NYCEDC. On the on-call tasks, we leverage our public, private, and institutional experience in design and real-estate development to help NYCEDC define, design, evaluate and communicate to stakeholders, the development opportunities in the City. Our design and development consultancy is especially valuable in the early stages of development, where the vision, development potential and character needs a buy-in from a wide audience. We are currently working on Seward Park Proposal Review, where we are evaluating multiple development proposals for 1.65 million square feet of development along 6 acres of underutilized land in Manhattan. We are evaluating the Urban Design merit and zoning compliance. Also in the Lower Manhattan, Perkins+Will is helping envision an iconic post-Sandy skyline concept that will create a new sense of community and reinforce the lights are back on in Lower Manhattan.
