A significant component of the long-term transformation of the Hunters Point site is the activation and development of a portion of the 32-acre site through interim use. This aspect of the project, known as NOW Hunters Point, had its first full year of programming in 2014.
- Now Hunters Point has focused on the following key programmatic goals:Site Management
- Stakeholder engagement
- Local Partnerships and Capacity building
Devised as one component of a larger site redevelopment strategy, Urb-in began to develop the notion for interim site activation in 2010. After several years of benchmarking and feasibility studies Urb-in worked with their client PG&E to conduct and request for proposals for an interdisciplinary team to design and run an interim use program. In 2012, a team of designers lead by Envelope A+D and Studio O were awarded this project.
Working as the client’s principal consultant on the project, Urb-in worked with the assembled team to craft and oversee the development of the interim use program Now Hunters Point.
