The Plaza on Church Street is a through block "bonus plaza" in Lower Manhattan affiliated with a 900’ mixed residential and hospitality building designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects. The open plan of the central space allows for flexible use, with moveable furniture gathered around a circular pool. A tree canopied outdoor seating room is situated on the central axis at each plaza end, providing shade and moments for repose. Tying the three main spaces together are three specially designed water features, axially aligned, with sculptural glass elements suspended on elegant metal posts. Rich stone pavement, luscious planting, delicate lighting and generous seating combine to enable the property owner to qualify for a bulk bonus from the New York City Planning Commission.
