Illuminate Lower Manhattan, Placemaking Through Lighting Initiative RFP

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC)


The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking responses to its Request for Proposals for the development and implementation of an innovative and engaging lighting and placemaking initiative aimed at increasing Lower Manhattan's exposure, expanding its appeal in the evening hours, and spurring more diverse business activity by using the area's buildings and public spaces to create a strong neighborhood identifier visible to viewers from both near and far.

The initiative offers an opportunity for lighting design professionals to showcase their creativity and shine a light on the area's evening attractions in order to draw more visitors and solidify Lower Manhattan's place as a business, residential, and commercial district.

This project is a tremendous opportunity to further Mayor Bloomberg's efforts celebrating Lower Manhattan's prominence as a preeminent global marketplace and engage over 56,000 residents and the over 300,000 employees who work in Lower Manhattan every day, along with the tens of thousands of tourists that visit attractions in the area.
