What do you envision for Governors Island?
A commercial C4-5 rezoning is being proposed for the Southern Island
New York Times asked Is This the End of Governors Island?
At the HoloCenter we are advocating for community engagement in any new development, working with the arts culture of the island, the restoration of the historic north island and respect for the park wilderness and its waterfront. (We are told the urban farm won’t disappear, but it doesn’t feature in the Draft Scope of Work)
