Field Operations is working to transform a half of mile of waterfront along the northernmost section of Greenpoint.  Greenpoint Landing, a 22-acre project that will include 5,500 residential units (the first phases are designed by Handel Architects), a new public school and approximately 4 acres of public open space.  This site is a one of the first waterfront projects that dealt with post-hurricane Sandy regulations for developments in flood hazard zones. The design, a continuous ribbon of terraced promenades punctuated by a series of amenities such as a pier and picnic area, was developed to incorporate FEMA’s new flood maps and the City’s Freeboard guidelines. Field Operations is providing innovative responses to flood preparedness with open spaces that can accommodate changing water levels and absorb runoff to protect habitat in the tidal East River, while also creating a dynamic urban public realm and public access to the waterfront.
