MEGA-BLOCK = HYPER-MESH
Mark Bearak - MArch
Dora Kelle - March
Seth Ruggiero - Urban Planning
Dana Fantauzzo - Real Estate
To reinvent the mega-block we proposed raising the residential and community spaces, thus creating the opportunity to bring the public into the base of the site.
On the ground floor an open park space will be created between the lattice systems that serve as the retail and free community spaces, this will also serve as the core to the residential spaces as well as.
Below grade ample parking is created for the residents and the public. There will also be a second level of major infrastructure such as subway connections and mechanical requirements that will all be located below the berms on the site.
Above the ground, residential space, roof terraces, and sky gardens will attach to adjacent mega-blocks. These connections will increase the access of public space to residents in surrounding megablocks.
