The proceeds will also finance projects that enhance public access to open space, accessibility and walkability, and preserve the socio-cultural attributes of Battery Park City. BPCA was selected as the Northeast Deal of the Year by Bond Buyer for its $673 million offering, of which Sustainability Bonds were a part.
