Step Planters & Vase Planters

Installation Information

The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) in collaboration with the NYC Plaza Program, along with Baruch College in NYC, and the Los Angeles City Planning Commission launched independent projects to transform community spaces utilizing innovative resin-based planters. Designed by Florida-based TerraCast® Products, an American owned and operated company; the planters are manufactured in the United States from a durable resin blend that resists sun and salt as well as the abuses of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The lightweight material allows for easy relocation during events or with seasonal changes. Areas all over the country are utilizing tactical urbanism for emerging public spaces, such as pedestrian plazas, streetscapes and parklets. Successful public spaces require modernization, acceptance and maintenance: These projects implement all three. Under NYC DOT and the NYC Plaza Program, Union Square, Madison Square and Times Square all feature TerraCast® planters, which adhere to New York City’s exacting design requirements while ensuring the areas to be energetic centers of activity.

Location: New York City, New York, USA

Project Year: 2010
