The future-proof housing, commercial, and recreation complex would rise from the Hudson River and be able to remain above water in the event of rising sea levels while addressing the city&rsquo;s dire need for affordable housing.</p></em><br /><br /><figure><img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/3x/3xhsigi92bnx5s4d.jpg?fit=crop&amp;auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=1500"><figcaption>Renderings courtesy of DFA</figcaption></figure><figure><img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/x4/x4vtmg2snq2tcevn.jpg?fit=crop&amp;auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=1500"><figcaption>Renderings courtesy of DFA</figcaption></figure>
