Long Island City
AAP NYC Urban Design Workshop
Project Team: Victor Tran (BS.URS)
All the work on this page is my own, unless otherwise noted.
In anticipation of the BQX streetcar proposal and Amazon HQ2 competition, the theme of the studio was to reimagine the future of Long Island City (LIC) in NYC. The semester-long project was to propose a transit-oriented-development urban design masterplan.
Researched economic and development trends, goals and existing plans, and zoning designations.
Surveyed and photographed site.
Communicated findings and design with relevant maps and drawings.
Performed network analysis of existing transit stops.
Made physical site model using foam core. Helped assemble physical model of the entire LIC.
