New York, NY

The open space zoning study by DLANDstudio investigates impact of potential new development adjacent to Sara D Roosevelt Park and Union Square in Manhattan, NY. The shadow study focuses on potential effect of increased shadows from higher development FAR (up-zoning and lot mergers) on duration of natural sunlight on recreational spaces. Potential development sites with greatest and minimal impact are delineated within the study as resource for future development.
