Governors Island, A Sandy Success Story

Listed on page 27, West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture together with the Governors Island Trust are praised for the island’s specific design strategy, which was intended to withstand the projected floods over the next 100 years and helped the island weather the impacts of the devastating storm.

We are honored to be featured in this publication and are looking forward to the continued progress of the construction as we move into the island’s bright future!
