The New York Restoration Project has been working with communities of the South Bronx on the Haven Project, a plan for mobility, health, and open space improvements in the South Bronx. https://www.nyrp.org/about/programs/the-haven-project/  Range designers are collaborating with the New York Restoration Project, OLIN, Civitas, McLaren Engineers and eDesign Dynamics on the design and construction of the first phase of the plan: the development of a coastal park in Port Morris. The project will create public access to the East River and Bronx Kill in an area that has no other parks on the water, the first step in a long-term process of reclaiming the social use and ecology of Bronx waterways, and rebuilding connections between communities interrupted by highways.
