Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Sunnyside Yard Urban Design Workshop. Please see the summary of findings below!
This workshop focused on the urban design, or the “look and feel”, of Sunnyside Yard. An opening presentation was led by Skyler Bisom-Rapp of Project for Architecture & Urbanism and James Johnson-Piett of Urbane Development. In addition to reviewing community engagement and the opportunities and challenges presented by a potential Sunnyside Yard development, the presentation discussed how the design team is approaching programming on the Yard, access to the deck, and gave an overview of floor area ratio and how it relates to building density.
