The City of New Rochelle, New York, is announcing the start of an exciting new competition to re-imagine its waterfront and downtown communities. Founded in 1688 by a craftsman from La Rochelle, France, New Rochelle, sits on the shore of Long Island Sound just a few miles north of New York City. A diverse, highly livable, and walkable place, the city has made great strides in recent years to rehabilitate its infrastructure and historic downtown. However, there is only a single block in the commercial quarter that touches on the shore of Long Island Sound. This is the site of the competition. In order to take advantage of this valuable waterfront, the city is sponsoring the three-part Waterfront Gateway Design Competition. Located at the edge of downtown and surrounding residential communities, the 2.92-acre plot is on historic highway Route 1. The site is home to a 1931 armory that has been abandoned for many years. It is also on an important promontory overlooking Long Island Sound's Echo Bay. This competition seeks creative and innovative proposals for the design, planning, and re-imaging of the site, as well as two adjacent parcels on Echo Bay. It is anticipated that the winning proposal, which will be selected by a high-profile jury of architects, planners, and public officials, will become the basis for the development of the site. We believe this is the most important competition to take place in Westchester County in many years. Click here for more detailed information about the competition, which launches tomorrow, June 19 and concludes November 22, 2013.
