Join us as we welcome a new class of Urban Design Forum Fellows and Forefront Fellows. 

At our Fall Fellows Reception, we look forward to celebrating the last year of work with our Fellows, who advanced ideas and proposals to envision a more vibrant, equitable streetscape, convened design and public health professionals to discuss shaping a healthier city, and explored how to foster food equity in every New York City neighborhood through the built environment.

The event will take place at 555 Greenwich, a Hudson Square Properties nearing completion in Hudson Square, designed by COOKFOX with global sustainability experts to be one of the most efficient buildings in New York City, exceeding NYC’s 2030 climate targets for office buildings by over 45 percent. The building also connects seamlessly with 345 Hudson, the adjacent building from 1931.
