Transforming downtown Albany’s waterfront into an ideal urban center
Connecting downtown to the waterfront and the Arbor Hill and Warehouse District neighborhoods, as well as to the Mohawk Hudson Hike Bike Trail, the Albany Skyway addresses the community’s desire to repurpose overbuilt infrastructure to gain more access to the waterfront.
Funded in part by the Environmental Protection Fund from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the vibrant linear park will provide space for social gatherings, festivals, and other events. It will also encourage walking and biking, revitalize the economy, and create the unique urban ambiance so desired by today’s workforce.
Our final design required an extensive amount of analyses and detailed design from numerous disciplines, so that every facet of the conversion of the ramp into an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant linear park was clear. The work of our landscape architects, structural engineers, traffic engineers, electrical engineers, civil engineers, and security experts was critical, as was coordination with several utilities. This level of complexity made the project come to life, creating great interest in the Skyway and succeeding in generating, in a very short time, enough funding for its completion.
