Located in lower Manhattan, between Battery Park City and Battery Park, Pier A is a New York City Landmark, the oldest surviving pier in New York City and is listed upon the National Register of Historic Places. Its Victorian-era pier building was constructed shortly after the Brooklyn Bridge and was once one of the city’s proudest points of entry. For decades the building sat in a ruinous state until it was recently renovated by the Battery Park City Authority for new and improved use. 


 


Rogers Partners' work for Pier A Plaza resolved special access and circulation needs located at the nexus of bike routes, pedestrian promenades, and tourist activities. Site planning restored one of the last remaining waterfront sites on the Hudson River through careful consideration of resilience-oriented design measures, pedestrian circulation and flexibility for intensive programming. Pier A Plaza integrates robust planting, comfortable shaded seating, and distinctive paving that celebrates the history of this evolving shoreline
