Enter the Harlem Edge/Cultivating Connections Competition to Transform the NYC WaterfrontJanuary 9th, 2012

The Harlem Edge/Cultivating Connections Competition explores the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station, located in the Hudson River at 135th Street. The site offers the opportunity to engage the local Harlem community with the waterfront, and it echoes recent efforts by New York City to reclaim the waterfront for non-industrial use — as included in the Department of City Planning’s Vision 2020. Entrants to the competition are challenged to re-imagine the presently inactive site in order to provide a platform to discuss several issues, including public access to the city waterfront, a means in which urban agriculture can be introduced into the community, creative programming and its ability to stimulate economic activity, and sustainability. Proposals should center around developing a food and nutrition education complex and a multi-modal transportation hub. Prizes of up to $5000 will be awarded to four submissions. Entries are due by January 16, 2012.
