Hell's Kitchen South: Developing Strategies provides a community-based vision for Manhattan's far west side that provides planning for steering new development in the area that will build on the neighborhood's distinct character and include a diverse mix of affordable housing, commercial activity, and accessible open space.
The publication includes findings from a community planning conference, as well as the results of a subsequent design study carried out by Design Trust fellows. Contents include design studies and planning reports, feedback from public exhibits and symposia, and a discussion of a series of goals: ensure that new development respects varying area scales, increase residential population while assuring a mix of incomes, improve public amenities, and mitigate traffic congestion.
