Port Authority Advances Revamp of Flushing Bay Promenade

As part of the LaGuardia AirTrain project, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has awarded a contract to develop a specific design plan for the top-to-bottom renovation of the Flushing Bay Promenade. The contract went to the architecture and landscape architecture firm Marvel, a certified minority-owned firm.

In 2019, the Port Authority committed to making significant improvements along the full 1.4-mile length of the Flushing Bay Promenade as part of the AirTrain LGA project. While specific improvements will be guided by community input, the agency committed through the Airtrain LGA project to rebuild Promenade walkways and railings, invest in appealing landscaping, create new public activity areas, install public art, upgrade lighting, and improve public access. 

Additionally, the Port Authority has formed a Community Advisory Committee for the project. The committee will include representatives from more than 20 local civic, environmental, recreational, and business community stakeholders.
