Urban Planner and Designer Ishita Gaur, Landscape Architect Tyler Silvestro, and Architects Jonathan Marvel and Guido Hartray from Marvel joined the Urban Design Forum and the Union Square Partnership for the virtual launch of the Union Square 14th Street Vision Plan.

The plan advances a vision for Union Square-14th Street as a pedestrian-friendly nexus of the city, improving connectivity, reclaiming streetscapes, and expanding open space. With newly dynamic plaza spaces and innovative new design elements such as integrated planter benches, the new Union Square-14th Street promises to remain an essential gathering space for free expression and an inclusive community space for all New Yorkers.
