The intent of this New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) project was to construct a continuous public waterfront esplanade over the East River in Manhattan, NY. The EMG’s southern and northern termini are East 53rd Street and East 61st Street. The project also included a new pedestrian bridge that provides access to the esplanade at 54th Street and Sutton Place South. KC performed the topographic survey, utility survey, and easement survey for the project. Work associated with the production of these deliverables included a comprehensive investigation of all available record utility and government agency maps.
KC also researched available design drawings, as-built drawings, and aerial maps spanning approximately 80 years to understand site conditions, both above and below ground. KC’s survey crew also coordinated with an arborist to accurately measure, classify, and record all trees within the project limits.
