Revitalization of Jersey City waterfront

New York is a city that grows continuosly, Last decade showed how important for NYC was to develop some of the most significant city’s waterfronts. Also New Jersey side is growing rapidly.Project shows the idea of important city grow into the Jersey’s  suburbs, just opposite the Hudson river.

Urban project is located on a place of the current Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey. The park is situated in front of the Manhattan, specifically vis-a-vis the bottom of the -Downtown Manhattan, where Ground Zero is situated. Liberty State Park area is now mostly the unused area. It is not adapted to the man scale, it is over-scaled as a recreational green area, both urban and suburban. Comparing it to Central Park, which is located in the middle of the skyscrapers jungle, this is just a  huge green space of Liberty State Park that New Yorkers do not appreciate. The absence of any facilities and attractions don’t attract both residents and tourists.  The main idea is to create eco-city easily connected with Manhattan. Area could be treated as the expansion of financial district of Downtown Manhattan with huge and pleasant residential area.
