Lowline on Lower East Side

The creators of the Lowline, a proposed park below Delancey Street on New York’s Lower East Side, have received a major show of support from the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), reports the Architectural Record.
Lowline’s founders are James Ramsey and Dan Barasch.

Lowline New York Lower East Side Park

Last fall, the NYCEDC issued a request for expressions of interest (RFEI) for reusing an abandoned trolley terminal below Delancey Street. The RFEI elicited just one response, from the Lowline organization. On July 13th the NYCEDC gave the Lowline its “conditional designation” as lessor of the underground space.

A NYCEDC spokesman said, “The trolley terminal is a challenging and immensely complicated site. We extended the RFEI deadline an additional two months and offered tours to give more groups the opportunity to respond. We would have certainly liked more responses, but didn’t receive any.”

Lowline Park New York Lower East Side

The Lowline’s founders, James Ramsey and Dan Barasch, first proposed the subterranean park in 2011, and they been experimenting with ways of carrying concentrated light through tubes in order to grow elaborate gardens in the terminal, which is owned by the city and has been abandoned for 80 years.
