Yonkers Downtown Development - Yonkers, NY

  • SFC was designated “Master Developer” for several major mixed-use projects located within the City of Yonkers.  The projects were part of a phased three billion dollar redevelopment plan to help promote downtown revitalization.  The partnership retained IQ as Landscape Architects and Urban Designers for several Phase One project areas.

    One waterfront parcel, known as Palisades Point, consisted of two residential towers with ground floor retail and associated parking structures.  IQ was responsible for the design of all surrounding open space and streetscapes including a waterfront park and esplanade.  The firm also created green roofs integrated with active recreation over the proposed parking structures.  

    The other development parcel, known as the Cacace Justice Center, linked a proposed office/hotel complex with a new minor league ballpark/retail center and the existing Yonkers City Hall.  IQ created a new streetscape plan as well as a restoration plan for historic Waring Park.  The main site feature for this project area was an elevated promenade or “Art Walk” which incorporated sculpture, murals and a community arts program.  A tiered landscape wall softens the visual impact of the proposed buildings and elevated plaza from Nepperhan Avenue, the main gateway to the City.
