Visionary Concepts Make "Rebuild by Design" Shortlist

10 bold ideas for building the New York area's resiliency have been selected to move to the final round of a design competition run by HUD. The best designs could tap into billions of dollars in Hurricane Sandy relief funds.

"After three months of in-depth analysis and public outreach, the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has shortlisted 10 design 'opportunities' for the third and final round of Rebuild by Design," reports Karissa Rosenfield. 

"The design competition, focused on making New York’s Sandy-effected regions more resilient, sustainable, and livable, will now have the final project teams collaborate with local and regional stakeholders in developing their projects over the next five months. The goal is to arrive at projects that are implementable and fundable, leveraging the variety of federal recovery investments being made in the region."

Images and descriptions of the shortlisted projects accompany Rosenfield's article.
