Today, Battery Park City Authority President & CEO Raju Mann attended the groundbreaking of The Battery Coastal Resilience, a critical component of the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Strategy.

Expected to be complete in 2026, The Battery Coastal Resilience is led by New York City Economic Development Corporation, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Mayor’s Office of Climate & Environmental Justice, and will tie into BPCA’s adjacent and ongoing South Battery City Resiliency Project (SBPCR).

Scheduled for completion next spring, SBPCR will create an integrated coastal flood risk management system extending along the northern border of Battery Park, across Pier A Plaza, through a rebuilt Wagner Park, and to the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The project has recently earned prestigious WEDG (Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines) Verification from the Waterfront Alliance. WEDG is a national rating system and gold standard for resilient, ecological, and accessible waterfront design.
