IBI Group ▪ Gruzen Samton developed a master plan for a unique 24-acre waterfront facility. It is sited on a peninsula, which extends into the Hudson River, and across from the Metro North Railroad station with just a short walk to Beacon, New York.
Our client was the environmentally-focused Scenic Hudson Land Trust with its developer, The Foss Group Beacon. Together they planned a mixed-use project that included a conference center, a 140-room hotel, three restaurants, office space and an array of public amenities to provide access to the river. A series of nature trails, picnic areas, a quiet harbor for kayakers and canoeists with a boat building barn, and a plaza for public events joined the site to water. The project’s goal demonstrated environmentally friendly development along New York’s protected Hudson River shed.
