Sherman Creek Boathouse |
Founded on the belief that the skills learned in rowing are essential to the development of well-rounded individuals, Row New York offers a competitive rowing and academic success program to students from underserved communities throughout New York City. The construction of a new 16,000 sf signature boathouse and learning center in Sherman Creek Park will accommodate up to five times as many students and bring all activities under one roof for the first time. Designed by Foster+Partners (in association with Bade Stageberg Cox), the new two-story boathouse will provide five boat bays with direct river access; locker rooms; dry rowing training facilities; two classrooms; offices; and a community space. Levien is coordinating a number of significant authority approvals that are required before construction can commence. Primarily, these relate to approvals for the building (from NYC Small Business Services) and approvals for works in the water and surrounding tidal wetland adjacent area (Marine Joint Application).
