Description Show more

Adding a 'Zoning Bonus' public plaza to the project meant that 55 Water Street would be able to be much larger.  It was renovated into what is often described as one of New York's 'hidden parks and garden oases'.  It has become considerably less 'hidden' as Lower Manhattan has been transformed into a residential neighborhood.
