South Brooklyn 2030 is a conceptual project for the densification of cities in a post-primary fossil fuel world. It begins with those areas of Red Hook, Governor's Island, and the Gowanus Canal, left under-utilized by the withdrawal of industrial and shipping functions. It proposes infill with a symbiotic mix of housing, commercial, and eco-industrial uses. The Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel is converted to mass transit with a station at Governor's Island. The elimination of auto access to the tunnel allows for a reconnection of the street grid between Red Hook and the areas north. Following the city's RFP for a technology university on Governor's Island, a campus is proposed, focusing on alternative energy, epigenetics, and urban agriculture.
