NYEDC Seeks Creative Proposals for an Iconic Lighting Installation in Lower Manhattan

NYCEDC issued a Request for Proposals for the development and implementation of an innovative and engaging lighting and placemaking initiative aimed at increasing Lower Manhattan’s exposure, expanding its appeal in the evening hours, and spurring more diverse business activity by using the area’s buildings and public spaces to create a strong neighborhood identifier visible to viewers from both near and far.

In the past decade, in an effort to create a modern, mixed-use neighborhood that is inviting 24 hours a day for seven days a week, many investments have been made in Lower Manhattan to create and redevelop public spaces, enliven active corridors, and further connect the area to the rest of the city. The proposed project is an opportunity for design and architecture professionals to showcase their creativity and shine a light on the area’s evening attractions in order to draw more visitors and solidify Lower Manhattan’s place as a business, residential, and commercial district.
