Our Mission 

Channeling capital budget investments into design and construction projects—in service of New York City’s economic development. 

For the Economy

Our job is to provide physical infrastructure, facilities, and amenities to strengthen the City’s competitive position, and enable capacity-building investments. We currently support over 90 active municipal projects, such as: 

  • Piers and terminals 
  • Parks 
  • Cultural centers 
  • Infrastructure 
  • Waterfront spaces 
  • Streetscape & pedestrian walkways 
  • Buildings  
  • Special projects 

We help bring new spaces to life by overseeing a project’s design and construction management.  

When it comes to services, we also provide specialized expertise and construction support to other NYCEDC departments and City agencies.

Building Relationships. Building Potential. 

At NYCEDC, we value our close connection with City agencies, such as the departments of City Planning, Transportation, Environmental Protection, Parks and Recreation, and Cultural Affairs. Many projects come to us through these agencies, as well as from the Borough Presidents, local elected officials, and local development corporations.  

We bring our years of experience to the table, helping them manage their projects and navigate complex City regulations.

Executing the Vision

First, we work with partner agencies to determine the customized project scope and requirements. Then, we assemble a skilled design team and construction manager with the expertise and experience for the seamless completion of the project.
