About the Project

The South Battery Park City Resiliency Project (SBPCR) is a BPCA capital project designed to provide flood risk reduction for Battery Park City and Lower Manhattan in response to increasingly frequent and more severe storms. It comprises an integrated flood barrier system from the Battery Park City Esplanade at the west end of First Place, along the waterside edge of the Museum of Jewish Heritage (MJH), through Robert F. Wagner Park, and Pier A Plaza, that then extends eastward along the northern edge of The Battery, ending at approximately the southwest corner of Battery Place and State Street. The project also includes modifications and upgrades to the storm-water drainage system on the interior side of the flood barrier system to ensure that flood risks on that side are not exacerbated by the coastal surge protection. 

Specific components of the SBPCR Project will include, among others: • Elevation of Wagner Park and Pier A Plaza to above the projected flood levels • Replacement of Pavilion at Wagner Park with a zero-carbon facility certified by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) • Flood walls and deployable flood gates • Improvements to storm drainage systems serving the project site to reduce flood risks • New landscaping features and plaza components • Installation of a storm-water retention cistern • Enhancements to street-side site security along Battery Place • Modifications to the inlet at Pier A and associated waterside edge conditions • Creation of a physical tie-in between the SBPCR Project and the Battery Coastal Resilience Project.
