The Battery Park City Authority is at work on interrelated resiliency projects to create an integrated coastal flood risk management system to address storm surge and sea level rise in Battery Park City. The system will be implemented in three discrete projects: The South Battery Park City Resiliency Project; the BPC Ball Fields & Community Center Resiliency Project; and the North/West BPC Resiliency Project. The barrier system will incorporate approximate design flood elevations ranging from 15 to 21 feet.
