CDR provided a comprehensive proposal and innovative development solution for the downtown site that links the commercial and residential core of New Rochelle to the waterfront of the Long Island Sound.  CDR conceives of the Armory as a public portal that allows for new connections to the long-abused coastal edge. Together with DLand’s proposed conversion of mud-flats to wetlands, the New Rochelle Armory Portal is programmed as a threshold bridging New Rochelle’s urban fabric and it’s lost waterfront.

Below is an image of the Armory Portal. CDR re-imagines the Armory as a shared room of passage from the city to the park, creating a space that is flexible and offers a location shared public entities.
