DMAVA Park and Hudson River Walkway

DMAVA Park and Hudson River Walkway is a public waterfront park offering sweeping views of Lower Manhattan and the New York Harbor, as well as the home of the historic Colgate Clock. This project responded to the environmental, historical, and recreational challenges of the property, specifically the movement of goods and cargo nearby and the historic migrations of people through nearby Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Langan designed this project for the NJDEP, including 1,600 linear feet of waterfront walkways, a bulkhead and waterfront esplanade, a timber boardwalk, and a three-acre park along the Morris Canal Basin, across from Liberty State Park. Our sensitive approach to preservation and ecologically-based engineering helped interpret and magnify this history while reconnecting Jersey City to its waterfront.
