The Lowline is an urban enrichment program that plans to place a naturally lit underground park in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Originally based on the success of the The High Line, co-founders Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have been planning the park for several years, and have only recently been given the chance to submit their proposal on how to use the uncontested underground space.
The New York City Economic Development Corp. (EDC) this past summer conditionally approved a plan to turn an abandoned trolley station below Delancey Street into the world’s first underground park. Now, for the first time, we’re getting a look at the winning proposal to create the Lowline on the Lower East Side.
Check out the full 154 page proposal for more details.
