The City of Yonkers, NY is revitalizing its 3-mile Hudson River waterfront as a means of strengthening its downtown, and providing its residents with unparalleled access to the river. The goal is to create a mix of public and private uses, including residential, commercial, and recreational development.

AKRF’s waterfront master plans are blueprints for new residential and commercial neighborhoods, and offer a range of amenities, including a marina, an esplanade running the length of the waterfront, and a recreational harbor, making the waterfront more accessible to the public and generating new activity on the City’s formerly underutitlized industrial waterfront. The transit-oriented design focuses development around two existing commuter rail stations.
