New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking proposals for the development and implementation of a placemaking through lighting initiative that will transform the experience of Lower Manhattan at night. This initiative should increase Lower Manhattan’s exposure, expand its appeal and spur more diverse business activity by creating a strong neighborhood identifier. The selected team will be responsible for executing an innovative project that will become a landmark for the neighborhood, visible to viewers from both near and far.

Successful RFP candidates will most certainly be inspired by the Tribute in Light art installation that ran for a brief period in 2002 and has since been shown every September 11th.

Fun fact: the lights at Times Square are a zoning requirement. Lights cannot even be switched off earlier than 1 AM, though most seem to be on way past then.
