This project is located between Pier 26 and Holland Tunnel along the Hudson River with the task of suppressing the 100 year flood. It was to incorporate a retail center as part of the 16,000 sqft. resilience strategy in order to fund the project. The proposal consists on a series of marshlands to mitigate the strength of the incoming flood as well as a series of floodgates that when closed, contain the flood and protect the city. When open the gates connect to an array of walkways, allowing the retail stalls, of which are cantilevering in the gates, to sell their wares.
