The NYC 2030 District is a Private / Public partnership of property owners and community stakeholders which will leverage financing, public support and collaborative action to spur sustainable innovation and progress. NYC 2030 District is working to establish a high-performance sustainability district in Downtown Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan. NYC 2030 District has 11 Million square feet of properties pledged to the partnership including the Brooklyn Navy Yard, The New School and Clinton Hill Coops.
The NYC 2030 District Committee proposes to establish a 2030 District through a process of consultation with local businesses, community organizations, civic institutions, and elected officials. The district will be located in an area comprising a portion of a dense NYC commercial district with adjacent residential, institutional and industrial zones. We propose to include affiliated areas as satellites to the 2030 District in order to reach a diversity of populations and income groups; to engage community-based non profits; and to promote broad impact of innovation and wide implementation of both sustainability and resilience goals. We are aiming at a potential district site encompassing areas of Downtown Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan, with our first target the area of CD 2 in Brooklyn.
We believe that the NYC 2030 District can provide a vehicle for advancing the objectives of PlaNYC and Mayor de Blasio’s 80 X 50 commitment, including adoption of sustainable behaviors and best practices through community engagement, and promoting constructively competitive interaction between stakeholders. The district will offer a living laboratory to demonstrate and test innovative approaches to aggregated energy efficiency projects, cooperative renewable and distributed energy generation, accessible off-grid emergency power, integration of sustainable energy technologies and design strategies, and silo-busting pilot projects to achieve common solutions to the challenges of urban sustainability, resilience and equity.
