The Starlight Park project helps realize a long-sought community vision: a continuous greenway along the Bronx River, designed with ecological principles that would provide river access for thousands of Bronx residents and visitors.  The New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) managed the project and included the application of the Envision framework during the construction phase, providing a forensic evaluation of NYC’s standard sustainable design practices.  This webinar will discuss the lessons learned from this forensic review through a case study published by the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure comparing the first round Envision score to the project team's expected scoring and a Lessons Learned Report developed by DDC and the project’s design consultant, NV5.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the Starlight Park Project case study
  • Compare the first round Envision score with the project team’s expected score
  • List the project’s achievements and lessons learned
