Hunts Point Landing


An ecological restoration project that removed degraded industrial features and implemented salt water habitat restoration, improved runoff design and increased recreational access to the water for local users.

Lessons Learned

  • Ecological restoration and recreation access can be dually accomplished in areas where shoreline space is limited.
  • Understanding site environmental conditions such as hydrology, water chemistry, and underlying substrate is critical to successful shoreline design and restoration.
  • It is essential to design sites with attention to sea level rise scenarios.
  • The impact of debris washed up during storm events should be accounted for in project design.
