Troy Urban Trails
Chazen is currently working with the City of Troy as well as the Rensselaer Land Trust to develop and market a vision for an urban trail network from downtown Troy up through a series of historically and naturally significant land parcels and preserves. Chazen played a large role in mapping and detailing a preferred Phase I trail network that follows the Wynantskill Creek, weaving in and out of stunning wetlands, waterfalls and gorges. Other key design features include pedestrian bridges, boardwalks, interpretive signage, and an entry kiosk and parking area. Through planning, design and robust renderings, Chazen was able to help the City submit Phase I of the project for funding through a 2017 CFA application.
