Fordham Landing

fordham 1

In response to a Department of Parks RFEI proposing a multi-use recreation park with a family style restaurant facility, EMWPC developed conceptual plans for a waterfront parcel at Fordham Landing in the Bronx, NY.

Our plan seeks to enhance site connectivity while maximizing opportunities for the enjoyment of outdoor space and water related activities. Integrating the restaurant as part of a multi-level sloping park allows for an increase in outdoor spaces through the use of vegetated roofs and sloping surfaces. The goal is to create a building that is open, inviting and sustainable.

The concept places emphasis on water related recreation. Water playgrounds would engage different age groups in creative play across the park. Water dependent uses would include a kayak launch and a “Dock-and-Dine” marina.
