Join the Urban Design Forum and the Union Square Partnership for the launch of the Union Square 14th Street Vision Plan.

The plan advances a vision for Union Square-14th Street as a pedestrian-friendly nexus of the city, improving connectivity, reclaiming streetscapes, and expanding open space. With newly dynamic plaza spaces and innovative new design elements such as integrated planter benches, the new Union Square-14th Street promises to remain an essential gathering space for free expression and an inclusive community space for all New Yorkers.

After a presentation from Union Square Partnership and Marvel, urban designer Margaret Newman, landscape architect Barbara Wilks and economic development specialist Kei Hayashi investigated the question: what does the plan promise, and how can it succeed?
