The Harlem Edge|Cultivating Connections design ideas competition explored the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station located in the Hudson River at West 135th Street. The site offered the opportunity to engage the local West Harlem community with the waterfront, and echoes recent efforts by New York City to reclaim the waterfront for a variety of publicly beneficial uses, as outlined in Department of City Planning’s Vision 2020, and the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan for New York City. The winners and selected entries were exhibited at the Center for Architecture July - October, 2012.
The Harlem Edge is presented as part of Future Now, the 2012 AIA New York Chapter Presidential Theme.
