Battery Park Perimeter Reconstruction

New York City’s historic 25-acre Battery Park welcomes more than seven million visitors a year. McLaren Engineering Group has helped engineer and maintain several amenities in the park including the Statue of Liberty seawall, SeaGlass carousel, ferry service, and now the Perimeter Reconstruction that streamlines 12 acres of circulation. This $14 million project includes an expansive gathering space, comfort station, bikeway and monument walk.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

Unique structures lie beneath the Battery, from subway lines to historic structures and bulkheads, cultivating creative solutions and multiple government agencies coordination for everything that goes on the surface. McLaren worked closely with Quennel Rothschild & Partners, NYC Parks, and the Battery Conservancy to replace paved surfaces with pervious ones. The Battery now features native salt-tolerant grasses that absorb stormwater and fosters biodiversity and resiliency to prevent future flooding.

The bikeway completes the critical link between the Hudson River Park and the East River bikeway. It was designed to encourage cyclists and pedestrians to approach cautiously which reduced the need for physical barriers and signage – effectively reducing costs and improving safety for all.

The new monument walk features 24 monuments of our nations explorers, defenders and inventors; as well as wider sidewalks and benches that improve the sites visibility and boosts exposure to pedestrians and bicyclists. McLaren engineered the drainage, site work and foundations for the monuments that were moved to enhance the walkway. McLaren also provided engineering work on the relocated Coast Guard Memorial in The Battery.

The existing comfort station was reconstructed with a new facade and modern interior along with the addition of outdoor seating areas for park patrons.
