Fulton-Montgomery Community College

Johnstown, NY

Chazen prepared a design for the recently-constructed Perrella Sculpture Garden and World Trade Center Memorial at Fulton Montgomery College. The new sculpture garden weaves campus visitors in and out of intimate seating plazas through an array of sculptural elements and a custom fountain with views toward the scenic countryside. The visitor’s eye is ultimately guided up to a reclaimed sculptural mass of antennae from the North World Trade Tower sitting atop a memorial plinth on the North end of the garden. The memorial is designed in such a fashion so that the point of the antennae’s shadow annually falls directly upon two stone obelisks set in the landscape at precisely the times the towers fell on September 11th.

Troy North Waterfront Extension

Troy, NY

Chazen is working with the City of Troy in the redevelopment of the City’s waterfront promenade between the Hedley Building and Riverfront Park. The primary goals of the project are to strengthen the pedestrian linkage between the downtown business areas along ‘restaurant row’ and the redeveloped public park area to the south, and to enhance the pedestrian interaction with Troy’s underutilized waterfront. The initial concept planning has been completed with design development documents currently being advanced in concert with current City marina pre-construction plans.

Kaal Rock Point Park Suspended Walkway

Poughkeepsie, NY

Chazen developed a conceptual design for a multi-use trail which included a summary report of the regulatory and permitting requirements and an opinion of probable cost for a proposed suspended walkway and associated park improvements in the City of Poughkeepsie just north of the Mid-Hudson Bridge. The suspended walkway would be located over the Hudson River on the west side of Kaal Rock Point Park and connect back to the north into Waryas Park, and south into Kaal Rock Park. Chazen designed the project to be consistent with the City’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan.

Walkway Over the Hudson

Poughkeepsie, NY

Chazen developed a concept plan to revitalize the unattractive and inaccessible eastern entrance of the Walkway Over the Hudson as part of the Washington Street Gateway Improvement Project. Working with the nonprofit Walkway Over the Hudson organization, and with numerous project stakeholders through a public workshop process, Chazen’s designers were tasked with providing a vision for the new entrance to the world’s tallest pedestrian bridge. Key design elements included seating walls, a decorative sidewalk, educational signage, planter boxes, improved lighting and congregating space for group visitors.
