Plans for housing, open space, retail and amenities in place of the underutilized Sheridan Expressway
The Pratt Center is working, as part of the Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance, on a collaborative vision for demolishing the underutilized Sheridan Expressway and replacing it with affordable housing, green open space, and other amenities. New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff has called the Sheridan plan one of the best models in the nation for reclaiming America's cities.
Removing the Sheridan would allow over 1,200 units of new housing, plus 500,000 square feet of commercial, community, and light industrial space to be developed on its footprint. The plan routes truck traffic along a new overpass and reconnects local streets to the waterfront, including the new Concrete Plant Park on a former industrial site.
