New York City Economic Development Corporation has announced the launch of New York City’s Waterfront Navigator website.

Funded by the Empire State Development Corp. and city, the purpose of the site is to act as a one-stop shop for users to figure out which permits they need from which agencies, and how to get them. Historically, it was difficult for applicants to obtain information on the process, which resulted in delays and other issues.

Enervision Media acted as the M/WBE sub-contractor to SOS Brooklyn, who was commissioned to design and develop the custom site.

Working closely in concert with team members from federal, state, and municipal agencies, we researched existing regulation requirements, designed the information architecture, and developed content for the site. The site concepts were fine-tuned through usability testing with actual users, who include anyone wishing to build or conduct projects on or near the waterfront or the wetlands in New York City.

We’re very pleased to have been part of this ambitious and exciting project, which is the first step for New York City in consolidating information on waterfront permitting.
